In Their Words: “‘Yearbook Signatures’ fleshes out the mixed bag of emotions that the music of my childhood summons. Growing up in the generation of the Sony Discman, every memory has a much more specific soundtrack. It makes those connected moments all the more visceral. Be it the unrequited love of every crush I ever had or the isolation I sometimes felt, the songs bring me back to those places. The ability that music has to affect us all these years later is a double-edged sword, but I stand here as proof that facing the darker side of growing up is easier if we can relate it to something else. We are young for a time; the songs that shape us are timeless. Growing up is hard, but rock ‘n’ roll made it easier.” — Jon Latham
