Tell us about the Detroit rock scene.
Randy Brewer: There are bands everywhere playing in clubs and recording studios. It's a thriving scene.
You’re both prolific songwriters. What and/or who inspires you?
Randy Brewer: We try to out do each other because Jayme writes the lyrics and I write the music. So when we finish a song and record it that inspires us to do more and keep going.
How did you two meet and start working together?
We were rocking and rolling on the scene and a lot of people said hey you two should record together. So we recorded the song "Never Be Mine" and put it online for purchase. The song is now getting massive airplay at Retail Radio.
