Beginnings, and The Way We Talk
Bassist Garrett Nickelsen and friend and drummer Patrick Kirch, met in November 2006, and they started talking about making a band. Singer John O'Callaghan joined soon after auditions for the band with no prior vocal experience, along with musicians Alex Ross, and Ryan Osterman with that lineup forming the band in January 2007. Together, they released the EP Stay Up, Get Down. Months later Ross and Osterman left the band, and they were replaced by Jared Monaco and Kennedy Brock, respectively. The Maine signed to Fearless Records and on December 11, 2007, they debuted with a five song EP entitled The Way We Talk, produced by Matt Grabe.
