If there is one thing that has made a big impact on who I am as a person it would be music. Music was such a huge influence on me in high school and college. I hate to say it, but it is what I let define me. It defined the art I made, the clothes I wore and the friends I had. Kev and I might have met in book making class like I wrote the other day, but we bonded over music first. He asked me if I wanted to drive with him to a show like the 1st week I met him. Haha. Totally weirded out, I said no but that I would see him there because I already had tickets. Too funny.
When I think of Kev there is lots of music that reminds me of him, but one band in particular will always be Kev and I’s Band. Did you ever listen to Silent Drive? Well, this band was made up of mostly Bane members (also a favorite in younger years) and Kev took me to see them on our very first date in 2004. Silent Drive is awesome. It may not be everyones taste, but it became the anthem of our last weeks of college and our first summer of dating. When I hear it I can’t help but think about how much I love Kev. It’s not the most romantic music, haha. It’s not sweet Valentine’s music at all but to me it is filled with memories with the man I love more than anything. It just seems fitting the their album title was called “Love it Worth it.”
