Bentley, Brad Rude and Dylan Walsh. They have played over 100 gigs, including Detroit's Hard Rock Café, Pontiac's cavernous Crofoot Ballroom, and West Virginia's 4,500-seat Appalachian Power Park. They have won several battle-of-the-bands contests, including "Rock the Mall" teen music competition at Ann Arbor's Top of the Park in 2011.

Jena has penned many original songs and is influenced by alternative bands such as Boston's Guster, but also loves "a ton of chill music," including Coldplay. She says, "In the past, I've written a lot about young love and heartbreak. Sometimes I like to write from another person's point of view, but I've also written about real life experiences, like my parents' divorce, and I think a lot of people can relate to that. But it's not all dark and sad. I can be inspired by watching a movie, or just by being happy and loving life."

She also says, "I usually draw inspiration from bands like Paramore, [and] Incubus. Bands that I usually have grown up listening to."
