Then: In 2007, Christofer Drew Ingle was 16 years old living in Missouri, writing emo acoustic songs under the moniker nevershoutnever! He quickly became "MySpace famous" (you know, internet fame before Vine, YouTube, Instagram and everything that followed). Three years later, he became Never Shout Never (so...no exclamation point, spaces betwixt the words), signed to Warner Bros., and the rest is history.
Now: He's still in the game! Never Shout Never acts as a full band instead of just Christofer Drew, and they're gearing up for their sixth studio album, Black Cat. Listen to the single, "Boom," here.
