Meanwhile, his older sister Sydney takes the helm as the band's lead singer and keyboardist, more than holding her own. As a group, the band has released numerous songs over their career. Furthermore, they have also been on stage with some of the biggest artists around, including touring with Twenty One Pilots and opening for Taylor Swift.

By the time he was 13, he had won a major competition which enabled him to study at the Curtis Institute of Music when he was just 15.
