— Dylan Saunders about Darren (via watchingblaineroleplayers)
I know that your younger brother Darren [Criss] also plays many instruments, what influenced the two of you, was it something your parents encouraged or was it just coincidental? Also, was there ever any rivalry between you to learn an instrument first? The same with song writing really! Is it a genetic talent?
Haha, there was no real rivalry to getting to learn an instrument first. Darren learned how to play when he was super young, so that was always kind of his thing. I didn’t even really attempt to learn guitar until high school, but it clicked for me shortly after and I fell in love with the process of song writing. I am not sure why we both gravitated toward it, it’s not like we come from a long family line of musicians or anything. I think music was just always really encouraged, and it was something Darren and I shared in common so we continued to pursue it.
Do you think that you will ever make an album together?
We definitely will, we’ve always wanted to make music together.
