The name Legend Of The Fall came from an all night session of sitting around the kitchen table brainstorming. "Our dad said how about Legend of the Fall?" says Skyler. "We decided to take all of the names that we had come up with and put them in a hat. We then prayed and pulled out a piece of paper and it said Legend of the Fall. Well it was Legend of a Fall, but we changed it because if we used the first letters, we didn't wanna be called LOAF."
"We're very big on meaning," adds JD. "The one thing we promised each other is we'll never let go of the fact that everything needs to have purpose. We don't do empty meaningless music, so we knew we needed a meaning behind our name. People say that the story of Daniel is just a legend and that Adam and Eve are just stories of Jewish legend. So, we connected it to the fall of man to show that people will consider it to be Legend of the Fall."
With influences ranging from Led Zeppelin to Panic At The Disco to Paramore, the band also credits their dad as their biggest influence and the reason they became a band.
"Our dad was in a band with his brothers when they were younger," says JD. "There was only three of them and they were 80's classic rock type stuff. Watching them when we were young, it just felt like that's what we were gonna grow up to do. We didn't really think of making it or not but we just somehow knew that we were destined to grow up to be musicians."
