“John Linen isn’t about anything. Sometimes you just wanna make music that makes you feel a certain type of way. Sometimes you just wanna create cool shit for cool shit’s sake.” – Dirty Heads vocalist Jared Watson
“I’ve been good friends with Jared and his family for a few years now so when Jared called me up and told me to come by the studio I said “sure! Would love to see the dirty heads in action.” Thinking I’d be a fly on the wall …unbeknownst to me Jared had a little secret plan… next thing I know I’m in the studio singing an outro with Jared as my voice coach.” – Ivy Miller (Ivuss)
