theTOMTOMs began recording their first album in May of 2009 with the track, "Slaughterhouse" written by Chris. Shortly after starting on the song "Unwritten" Chris and Kayla had a falling out, quit working together and also quit speaking to each other. "Unwritten" was originally intended Kayla to sing but because of the break-up, Chris sang the vocals instead. Chris then recorded his E.P. using the track, "Unwritten". Just before the E.P. was released January 29th 2010 they got back together. In October of 2010, nine months later, they picked it back up and recorded, "Mama Told Me" and "How to Pack a Suitcase". They then recorded in quick secession, "Learn to Fly", "Dirty Lies", "Temptation" and stopped half-way through "My Apology" in the spring of 2011. Recording was then halted because of a lack of funds. Chris moved to New York City that summer and collaborated with Mason Heidger and recorded, "We Thought We'd Lost You" "Chew Through the Darkness" and "Just Move". Chris moved back to Michigan in that fall 2011 and on November 10th, Chris and Kayla tied the knot and are enjoying married life.

"It boggles the mind to see musicians like these, who can simply sit down in a room with no technology and sound like a perfectly produced recording, seemingly effortlessly. " -Jake Niemi
