After vocalist Matt Papasan and guitarist Aaron Cone rekindled their friendship in 2010, the San Francisco-based pair formed the electro-acoustic pop act Break The Silence. Although they’re now a quintet aspiring to tour and snag a record deal, their motivations are remarkably unchanged. “We really began purely out of impulse, and because of our love for music,” Papasan says. “Both myself and Aaron had a very strong passion for music and loved the idea of bringing our feelings and life experiences across to people in a way they could relate to and understand.”
