The three also talk about being roommates, best friends, what it's like dating someone you work with, and pineapple on pizza.

    The Sensei of Songwriting, Michael Gurley.

    The Sensei of Songwriting, Michael Gurley.

    Mitch and Phill get a visit from their long time friend, Michael Gurley. The guys tell the story of Michael discovering the band while they were on stage at the world famous Whisky-a-go-go, on Hollywood's Sunset Strip. Soon after that, Mike's guidance lead Mitch and Phill to completely start over with their songwriting process as he pushed them to their highest potential. This started the snowball that lead to everything we all know as Wayland. 10 years later the three songwriters still love working together any chance they get, and Wayland is so excited to help Michael celebrate the release of his new solo record, "Ultrasound." There aren't many people that have played as big of a roll in helping Wayland find their way as Michael Gurley has.

    Running naked through the desert with KIPTOE

    Running naked through the desert with KIPTOE

    Mitch and Phill got a chance to sit down with their good friend Kiptoe, a visual artist who travels the world painting murals. One of the most unique aspects of how he shares his art, is his amazing YouTube channel where he captures the process of creating these massive works of art. The Wayland guys are some of his biggest fans, so it was fun to dive deep into his story, and discover so many parallels with the band's journey, as they both find their way.

    Sean Taylor name drops The Muppets, Spiderman, Los Angeles Bank Robbers, and Apt 14

    Phill, Mitch, and Sean sit down in the desert studio and crack open a few ice cold cans of root beer, and go back almost 20 years to when they first met. With the long history and friendship, and Sean's amazing career and passion with film and television, he was the perfect person to direct and produce the documentary on the band. The stories between these three are hilarious, as Sean has been there from the beginning, as the band has found their way.
