Believe it or not, Ethan Carey and I were people with whole lives, families and experiences that pre-date working with one another, or at I-95. Most of the photos here were taken long before either of us worked at I-95 or knew one another.

Looking at these photos is a reminder of the how different we really are. If a picture is worth a thousand words, you can buckle up for an entire book called: "Ethan & Lou, The Early Years, The Michael Scott Story with Michael Scott, featuring Dwight Schrute."

We did some decent work as solo artists, sure, but we would never reach our full potential without one another. In that way, we are very Hall and Oates'ish. I am, of course, Hall and Ethan is Oates, but every duo needs an Oates.
