Line In is a student-created band with members who all attend Midlothian High School. Noah St. Peter, Daniel Moore, and Andrew Partington started this band in 2016. The members include: St. Peter playing guitar, Moore on vocals, Brandon Brown playing drums, Anthony Montz on lead guitar, and Isaac Smith on bass. Their first single, She’s Moving On recently released on February 27th, exclusively on YouTube, and it is currently available on iTunes and Spotify. St. Peter wrote all of the lyrics and the parts for guitar, bass, and lead. Brown wrote the music for the drums. The full album will drop in April, once they have finished creating their songs and recording in a professional studio.

Line In has played at the Midlo Talent Show, where the band first got their start in 2016, Midlo 5k run, James River Battle of the Bands, Carytown Coffee, and RiverJam, where for the first time they performed their new single and cover songs from classic rock bands, such as Led Zeppelin and The Beatles. At RiverJam they performed; Twist and Shout and Don’t Let Me Down by The Beatles, Roxanne by The Police, This Love by Maroon 5, Hey Hey What Can I Do and D’yer Mak’er by Led Zeppelin, Dreams by Fleetwood Mac, and Dani California by Red Hot Chili Peppers, concluding with their single, She’s Moving On.

The band started when the members decided they wanted to be in the talent show, which happened to be five days away, forcing them to put things together quickly. Originally, St. Peter was on base with Moore, when Partington expressed interest in joining, which formed the original version of Line In. The members all agree that they enjoy the excitement of the performance and spending time together and with other bands after the show.  Fortunately, the band intends to keep playing after high school, excited for all of the future opportunities that may come their way. 

Is the band popular among your friends and in school?

Among friends? Oh yeah, for sure. It’s fun to say, “Oh hey, I’m in a band,” and people go, “Oh really? Cool!” Only recently it’s started taking a turn where people come up to us out of nowhere, someone we don’t even know, and they give us compliments. Going from just a few guys who play music to actually getting our songs out there has been crazy cool.

What is your favorite part of being in a band?

We can all agree it’s the actual performance. One thing I always will remember is when we played Let it Be for the James River Battle of the Bands. It really was a sight to see. Not something you could get a picture of, but it’ll stay stuck in my head. Everyone had their phone flashlights on and were waving them, like the classic lighter wave. Nothing beats that view. And the after party, that’s really cool. After the Battle of the Bands, we all went to Chick-Fil-A and met up with all the other bands and a few audience members. That was great: everyone getting along and having fun. It really wasn’t about winning for us. We’d take second place over first any day.

Is there any other information you think people should know about the band or your music?

We’re always nervous before we go on! That’s one of the most important things.  If you’re nervous, you must think it’s important, and that it means something to you, no matter if it’s a small or a big crowd. The small crowds are so personal. The point is, if you ever stop getting nervous, there’s no point in doing it. Even after stage fright goes away, there’s always that pre-show ambition and nervousness; it just adds to the experience.
