J-14 is scouting out bands on the brink... and this week's pick is The Summer Set!
Here are five things you need to know about The Summer Set, whose album, Love Like This, is out today!
1- The band came up with their name by opening up an atlas -- and ending up on Somerset, NJ, which they changed into "Summer Set."
2- They're currently on tour with Cartel and This Providence through
3- Talk about girl power -- The Summer Set's got a girl drummer, Jess Bowen! But she says the guys don't treat her any differently!
4- Their music is all about the fun. Lead singer Brian Dales says, "We're just five normal kids, who live normal lives making the music that we love. You can hear the fun on our records, but hopefully when people come to our shows, you can feel all the fun and love that we're putting out there and take part of it home with you!"
5- When Brian was first introduced to JONAS actress Chelsea Staub, it was practically love at first sight! He wrote a song about his crush and performed it live for her at the Troubadour in Los Angeles last October... now the two are dating in real life! (Look how cute they are together!)
