The title says it all, my friends. For us, family is absolutely everything.
Since day one we have operated under the condition that family will always come first, no matter what. We are also realists and we understand that no family is perfect, to include this family that is Covina. We have our fair share of up's and down's, fights, temporary break-ups (emphasis on temporary), but we overcome these obstacles every single time.
The answer is simple: Love.
In our short time of existence (just under three years to be exact) we have seen bands come and go, which is common place in this industry. The "scene" is saturated with so many great bands wanting to "make it." Sadly, for many that dream never comes to fruition. They have their reasons, which as fellow human beings we respect. However, for us, this is a not only a dream we are fighting to come true, but a life goal we are doing our best to obtain. Music is everything to us... to this family... and we endeavor to one day make this our living (God willing; some of us are religious). Sure, every band out there is vying for the opportunity to prove its worth and we respect everyone's "hustle," but for us, it is personal.
Which brings me back to family.
I can't divulge any personal obstacles we have encountered in our nascent [nearly] three years, but I will tell you that we have struggled with anxiety, depression, suicide, and our fair share of break-ups; but, we are still here. Still fighting. Still struggling. Still a fucking family.
At the end of the day we are family and family always struggles together.
through thick and thin. Always.
