As a result, he started playing the drums in bands in middle and high school. At sixteen, he started writing songs and touring with bands after learning how to play other instruments. When Witzigreuter was seventeen, he played drums for Take Sides, a ska band, and Saints Never Surrender, a hardcore band, among other bands. The 2008 release of Saints Never Surrender’s sophomore album, Brutus, bore Witzigreuter’s credit. He played in the band BrideandGroom, an acoustic group.

It’s said that The Ready Set plays synth-pop and electropop music. According to Witzigreuter, he usually likes to mix different genres of music, such as pop, hip-hop, and hardcore punk. Witzigreuter has identified Copeland as his primary influence. He grew up listening to the artist. In general, because of his sound, ability to function as a one-man band, and utilization of a live band while touring, The Ready Set has also drawn comparisons to Owl City.
