(Taking In Music Eternally) - When college began, Niko and Reggie aspired to be future music movers in their own right. The common goal they shared brought them together and they formed an alternative band known as T.I..M.E. It didn't take long for the two to find a specific sound that fit them. After a Facebook video of their song "Hero", the duo was asked to be guests on the campus radio station. Not much later, they performed at an open mic and were asked to showcase their music at a student body meeting. T.I.M.E. is currently working on their EP entitled "Broken Clock Faces". The divine duo and self-proclaimed Time Keepers of Hip-Hop & Rock are definitely on their way. All they're doing is waiting on the right T.I.M.E.
