How would you describe your music?
Booming bass, war-like drums, and a lil bit o’ glitter. We’re a teen rock band from northern New York! We live 45 minutes from the Canadian border. There’s a lot of classic rock and country up here, and it comes out whether we mean it to or not! So we embrace it, and make it more metal:)
Tell us about how the history of the project?
Let me tell ya how we come together. Our drummer Christian is a die-hard djent/metal/screamo fan. Ian’s heart (bassist) was born and raised in classic rock. You know, The Beatles, Zeppelin, the whole thing.
Then there’s me. I LOVE to sing. You can’t take a singer and stick her in one genre. The trick is melding these three sounds without losing what God gave each one. The whole is greater than the piece.
Do we argue because we’re so different? Depends what you call an argument! We’re passionate (lol), and we love each other. We love the artistry that comes out of it!
What are your influences/ musical heroes?
Anything and everything. There’s always something you take away from someone. One of my musical heroes is Lacey Sturm (of Flyleaf), everything she does is killer. Ian’s, of course, is The Beatles. Why? They did something no one had ever done before.
What inspires you?
Once again, anything and everything. I am hugely into language. Words are a safe space. I tend to take influence from conversations, poems, books, quotes. All of it.
Do you write on the road? Or do you prefer to write in the studio?
I do the main melody/lyrics of the song. We all collaborate on the music. We’re always writing, although it tends to be mostly at home.
What is your favourite song to perform live?
We’ve just started working on a metal/screamo song called Land of the Dead. It’s a brand-new song that we’ve only played live twice. It’s another step up in our musicality.
What would be your dream tour to be a part of?
Tenth Avenue North, The Rolling Stones, and Red. That would be a heck of a concert, wouldn’t it?
What are your current thoughts on the music industry?
Technology has enabled small bands to get their music out. I have no idea what it’s going to look like by the time I’m 40!
What is the funniest/weirdest experience you have had on tour?
We were traveling out of state, and our gas tank was on empty. Literally empty. A couple miles left to find a gas station. (What were we thinking, and who was driving?!) Lo and behold, there it was! Our saving grace! We pulled up, funny that there were no cars. Yup, it was boarded up with a For Sale sign in the window.
Luckily, we were on the back side of a mountain, and looking down into the valley. We spotted another gas station within in a mile, and made it!
What are your future plans?
There’s a lot going on in the world with the COVID-19 virus. It has reached every corner. Due to this, all of our shows March through May are on hold. We were booked in New Jersey, Maine, and locally. So, looking forward to rescheduling those!
We’ve also just put out the music video for our second single, Where Are You. We have 3 more songs to follow this year to complete our first EP!
