This song coming soon to itunes!
ANS (Alone n’ Single) is a band based out of Logan, Utah. The band members include Kyle Naylor, Eric Williams, Brad Dutson, and David Cline. We like to party! Our first single “She’s Goin’ On A Mission” has just been released with this music video!
ANS came together shortly after 2012’s fall session of the LDS church’s General Conference. At this conference, it was announced that the age for eligible mission service had been lowered considerably (especially for girls). A couple of band members and other friends of the band (roomates – like Eddy Morris) were “dumped” by girls that decided to serve missions.
This has become a very common trend recently, and Mormon girls everywhere (especially in Utah) are leaving dudes heartbroken, devastated, and hopeless.
This heartbreak and bitterness proved to be great inspiration for songwriter Kyle Naylor, who soon wrote a song entitled “She’s going on a Mission”. The best musicians in the western United States were soon recruited in order to create the band known today as ANS (Alone n’ Single). Among these notable musicians is Eric Williams, a world renowned maraca player who recently won the 2012 maraca freestyle world championships. In 2010, Eric was nominated by AMPA (the American Maraca Players Association) to be inducted into the maraca players hall of fame. A full list of the band members can be seen below.
Lead Singer and guitar: Kyle Naylor
Drums: Brad Dutson
Piano: David Cline
Backup vocals and maracas: Eric Williams
After playing live at massive venues including a ward talent show, and even a STAKE talent show, the bands popularity began to skyrocket. Now, as the result of much demand on behalf of fans everywhere, ANS has professionally recorded and produced the song with an accompanying music video.
So everyone get STOKED! And tell your friends who your favorite band is! (It’s ANS…..right? Ok, well just lie then!)
Huge “thank you” to SE Needham Jewelers for sponsoring the video! They were a pleasure to work with and truly have the finest jewelry around! That’s where Utah gets engaged!
