What About This Artist's Music Speaks To You: Skillet was my first band, ever. I was 12 and wanted so badly to find music that I liked and that my mother approved of. I was very lonely and started to Google "Christian Rock bands" thinking that there couldn't be anything bad in a Christian Rock song. Skillet was the first result. I listened to "Whispers in the Dark" for the first time at about 1 in the morning after a really bad day. I can honestly say that in that moment that song seemed to be meant for me. I love how every single one of their songs has a mission and a statement to make. A lot of bands can get out there and make noise but it takes true anointment to make a sound. They do it every time. Skillet always teaches you something every time you hear them. They make you think and they make you act. I heard one song and after that have been a solid Panhead ever since. Although, I did have fun explaining to my mother that my favorite band was named after a frying pan. :)

Favorite Piece Of Merch/Item You Own From This Artist: I have a signed drum stick from Jen Ledger that I caught at my first concert, but I'd have to say that my favorite item is the Rise CD. At Alive they were having a pre-sale and because I was the first to buy it, I was the owner of the first ever Rise CD in existence, which is how I got to meet them.
