Lucky for us, the college crowd is TBT’s main audience. “It’s your first shot [no pun intended] at freedom and it’s a wonderful, wonderful time,” Simonett says. He attended the University of Minnesota for one year but then later decided to commit his life to the pursuit of music and to his family. Simonett has a one-year-old daughter named Lucy who, according to the artist, takes up most of his time these days.
So, as usual, I had to ask Simonett for his best advice to college kids. “Drink a lot of water. Oh, and when you’re in school, study something that you’re interested in, not just to get a job,” says Simonett. “But then again what the hell do I know?”
