High school is where a lot of our dreams start, and unfortunately end. Our teenage years are filled with exploration, angst and confusion that can often lead us down paths that we never wanted to turn down. But with the boys from The Faim, they had a dream in high school and they are living it out now, to its fullest. Birthed from a small town in Australia, The Faim went from “Small Town Heroes” to touring around the world with bands like PVRIS and Sleeping With Sirens through hard work and dedication. The Faim is not your typical alternative band and they sat down with Beyond the Stage to tell us why, in a green room 30 minutes before they were set to open for Andy Black.
“I think most bands and people in this industry are very hardworking, dedicated, motivated and enthusiastic about what they do. Obviously, everyone believes in their craft but I think the biggest thing with us, is that we are so transparent with each other, we all have different opinions and different perspectives. We truly listen to each other, whether we agree or not. I feel we give each other that chance to experiment, that chance to grow outside of ourselves and become a unit. I think a lot of people get caught up, not that it’s a bad thing. Ego can come into the picture and not allow you to grow and listen to opinions,” Josh Raven, lead singer of the Faim told Beyond the Stage.
The boys of the Faim consider themselves nowhere close to typical and anyone can agree with that after listening to their discography or seeing their live show. All the boys have electric and eccentric personalities on and off the stage, and one has to wonder after exerting all that energy on stage almost every night on tour, how they stay healthy during all of it.
