Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Generation whY talks with Walk the Moon's lead singer, Nicholas Petricca.  Nicholas Petricca is the lead vocals, Keys, Synthesizer, and Bass Drum.  Nicholas wrote the song "Anna Sun", which was named the song of the summer in a 2011 Esquire article "30 Summer Songs Every Man Should Listen To". Written by Petricca and New York singer/songwriter Nick Lerangis towards the end of their college career, the song is named after their professor from Kenyon College and is meant to symbolize youth. "It's about college, about maintaining that little bit of being a kid," Petricca said. "Don't be afraid to play."

Walk the Moon is an indie rock band based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Lead singer Nicholas Petricca started the band in 2008 and went through several member changes before finally coming together with current members, Kevin Ray, Sean Waugaman, and Eli Maiman sometime in 2010. The band derives their name from the song "Walking on the Moon" by The Police. The group independently released their debut album, i want! i want!, in November 2010, receiving airplay for the track "Anna Sun". In February 2011, Walk the Moon signed with Mick Management. They signed to RCA Records and released their first official album, Walk the Moon in June 2012. Their self-titled debut is composed of many of their original tracks from i want! i want! in addition to new tracks that were written specifically for the album and were meant to reflect the kind of energy the band produced in their live shows.
