2007: "Ten Types of Love and Heartache"



It’s Christmas morning. Two brothers sit in the Chevy Suburban packed full of music equipment, food, and diet coke. “What are we doing?” they ask each other.

The scenario is…well…not all that common. Two brothers, Luke and Johnny Connell, wishing to pursue their passion in music, travel 750 miles from their home in Middletown, CT, to Cincinnati, OH…all on Christmas day. Eleven hours later they arrive at their hotel. The next day it begins…recording their first album. Five days later it’s completed. And about two months after that, they have two more bandmates, Nate Dudek and Brandt Sanderson, and play their debut show as The Pen Cap Romance.

“Formed in late 2007, The Pen Cap Romance is more than just a band. It’s four guys: Luke, Nate, Brandt, and Johnny, seeking to build relationships with people and show them love and hope, using music as the window to doing so.”

Our goal as a band is to meet new people and build relationships with them. We want to share our stories with them, and we want to touch their hearts with our music while at the same time being touched by their friendship.

We are in no way perfect, nor are we musical geniuses, however, we want to use what musical abilities we have in order to reach people, to reach you, and to help those in need. The world is filled with hurting and lonely people. We ourselves have dealt with this very same hurt and loneliness, and quite honestly, we still deal with these issues on a daily basis. We don’t have all the answers, nor do we claim to. However, we want the opportunity to share our faith with others, and to love them for who they are. Our desire is to simply do what we feel we’ve been called to do by our Savior, and that is to love.

So with that being said, we hope you like our music. Talk to us. Get to know us. Get dinner with us. Play guitar hero with us. Whatever! We’d love to meet new people and build friendships with people like you.
