All other releases have been recorded at Casa de Forte, and have been engineered, produced, and mixed by the band. They are as follows:
Josh comes from a musical family. His father was keyboardist in a regularly gigging jazz fusion/rock band, JR Brass. Josh’s earliest musical experience came as drummer for a psychedelic band during middle school and early high school years. His parents encouraged the family’s musical endeavors, even his little brother, Caleb Campbell, is a regular in the Denton music scene. Since Josh’s band practiced out of his house, he had access to piano, drums, and guitar. It quickly became apparent that the guitar is where his true passion reside, and he quickly put together a new set of players with him up front.
Josh met Nick by reputation in high school, as he needed to replace his bassist in a group already set to perform for the school’s talent show. It was at this show they met Chris’s band, and the two groups joined to form Orange Peel Sunshine. Josh led OPS for over 10 years. During a period when OPS lost Nick to Seattle, Josh kept in creative contact with him, and the two wrote songs under the moniker Bueno Tornado. After OPS called it quits, Josh and Nick continued to create music, and performed a live show as a two-piece. At the beginning of 2012 they called upon Chris, and I’m The One Who’s Fighting was born.
Nick, too, grew up in a musical household; his father, Nick Sr., is still a regularly gigging drummer. With an early exposure to his dad’s drums and piano, his sense of rhythm was almost in-born, his creativity and talent almost second nature. He received his first guitar as a teenager, and spent nearly every free moment by his boom box learning his favorite songs by ear. With easy access to drums, guitar, and his dad’s piano, Nick can switch musical hats at the drop of, well, a hat.
He performed in plenty of punk and hardcore bands in high school, but it wasn’t until he met Josh that fate would unfold. Filling in as bassist in Josh’s band for a talent show, it wasn’t long after that the two decided to start Orange Peel Sunshine. Nick was the obvious choice for drums. Always looking for multiple avenues of creative output, Nick also wrote hardcore songs as the guitarist of Far From Rooted, a side-project during his time with OPS. After the fold of OPS, Nick and Josh continued to create songs as Kid Skin Sells, a guitar/drum two-piece, which quickly became the ITOWF three-piece. Nick continually contributes guitar, bass, drum and vocal ideas in the band.
Chris is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, and first picked up the bass after a pawn shop purchase as a sophomore in high school. He used the vast resources of the internet to learn the basics at a young age, but honed his live performance craft as a youth group music leader at his local church with weekly practices and shows. Having simultaneously learned to play guitar alongside his fellow youth group band members in order to play the bass parts, he feels at ease in either role of melody or rhythm. He was a founding member of the ITOWF‘s initial incarnation, as bassist for Orange Peel Sunshine.
Ever the student of technology, Chris has brought a zeal for DIY when it comes to recording, mixing, and general audio engineering. He’s even dipped his toes into the waters of effects pedal building, which began as a hobby of circuit-bending old children’s electronic toys (such as the beloved 80s device, the TI Speak & Spell). He quickly established himself as the guru of the group. Chris has in recent years picked up the melodica and the ukulele, and he can carry a beat on drums too, but don’t ask him to do any fills.
