Nate Ruess splashed onto our family scene when We Are Young blew up the summer of 2012. At the time, he was with Fun and as a local Glendale boy making it big, the song received airtime galore here in Arizona. Here’s a local article that captures the hometown pride, How Nate Ruess of Fun. went from Glendale to Grammys. In this interview he shares,

Then I swiftly was transported to the past with a glimpse of the Beatles here, of Queen there…ELO…REM… Ruess weaves together classic rock sound with fresh execution. He tells a simple story of love that starts quietly, crescendos, and explodes! Since then our family has listened to, talked about, and enjoyed this triumphant song.
