He Formed His First Band in 2004
In 2004, Joey formed his first band with Max and Cole, and they originally called themselves The Raining Souls. Eventually, the band decided to rename themselves Emily's Army in honor of the Becker brothers' cousin, Emily, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis in 1998. Travis Neumann joined Emily's Army in 2009, but due to creative differences, he left in 2014 and new bandmate Sebastian Mueller came aboard. After releasing their first single, "Miley," (which is an ode to Miley Cyrus), the band rebranded themselves as SWMRS.
