How did Jaeger Wells form and come to be what it is today?
Jaeger: Initially when I went into the studio to record Fever Dream Anthology – I brought in Vic to do the session work. After spending 24 hours with each other – we realized the chemistry and I asked Vic to join full time.
Who are some of your musical influences?
Jaeger: I have always really loved the off kilter pop of Ben Folds Five and Barenaked Ladies as well as the really unique songwriting of Neil Diamond. Mix that with artists like Jimmy Eat World and Ted Leo – I think that really sums up my creative influences.
Vic: I’d say my all time favorite drummer would have to be Dave Grohl of course. Abe Cunningham (Deftones) is another influence for sure. As far as favorite bands go, it would have to be Foo Fighters, Every Time I Die, and Jimmy Eat World.
What do you enjoy most about playing shows?
Jaeger: definitely getting in the zone and just letting the music take over. It almost feels like an out of body experience.
Vic: I’d say one of my favorite things about playing shows is seeing how the crowd reacts to songs. Especially if they know the words. Probably one of the best feelings is hearing the crowd sing back to you.
What do you do when you’re not playing music?
Jaeger: I like to watch a fair amount of soccer, MLS, Premier League, etc. I also am a huge fan of watching movies. Over the years I have gotten really close to some people in the film industry and it really has made the movie watching experience more enjoyable
Vic: I play and tour in other bands as well so when I’m home I tend to not leave the house very often. I mostly just stay at home with my wife and watch tons of Hulu and Netflix.
