And Then I Turned Seven's most well-known songs include "I Miss You", "Goodbye (I'm Sorry)", "Head Spin" and "In Loving Memory".

History[edit | edit source]

And Then I Turned Seven was formed in 2003 by founding member Dane Schmidt. After releasing his first album, Broken Summer, Schmidt left college to start touring full-time, adding members Pat Tarnowski, Kieren Smith, Trevor McKenzie, and Chris Lee. Soon after, Smith talked his folks into homeschooling to accommodate the band's intense touring schedule. The band released "The Jamestown Story" EP in October 2005 and quickly built an online fan base through social media sites PureVolume and Myspace, earning millions of plays as an unsigned band. After playing over 150 shows in 2005 and 2006, the band changed its name to Jamestown Story.
