Them Fixes is a two-piece rock band from Nashville, attempting to climb to new sonic heights by combining minimalist ingenuity, copious amounts of energy and riff oriented rock.
Tell us about the history of the band?
Shawn and I have been in bands with one another since High School. He Moved back to Ohio and then came back some years ago and we reconnected and formed a band with a mutual friend called The Clover Club. That project came to an end after 4 years and we decided to keep going forward with a new and fresh direction and ideas. We decided to go the 2-piece route because I had seen what bands like Royal Blood and Death from Above were doing and I decided to put my own spin on the concept. Viola!

What are you current thoughts on the music industry?
It’s a mess, but I wouldn’t trade what we do for the world.
What advice would you give to someone starting their own band?
Take your time and try and craft GREAT songs. Don’t rush the process, but don’t let the flames die down too low either. Then when you go to record, spend the extra money to go and do a proper release. Don’t settle when it comes to that. You’ll be far more happy when your band is properly represented with Radio quality sound.
What are your future plans?
Play out as much as we can and we have plans to release another fun song by the end of the year before we break ground on EP #2!
Check out their EP Electric Prophetic on band camp.
