The first glimmer of We Are OFK got here from my bizarre mashup of previous careers… vocalist, filmmaker, RPG designer. But that combination didn’t explode in my face because of precise execs from TV, pop music, and video games, who formed what it grew to become – a uncommon, glittery cross-industry staff! I’m wildly grateful, to the solid for letting me carry out and sing with them, and to the band for letting us inform their story.
