How would you describe your taste in music?
Pretty eclectic. As a band we all have really different tastes so we heavily influence each others preferences, especially on the road. I’ll listen to anything from metal to top 40’s to rap and hip hop
Who do you consider to be your favourite band and why?
That’s such a hard question, one that I’ve never been able to answer. The closest thing I have would be a two way tie with Brand New and Thrice. Both bands were putting out their best albums when I was really starting to get into music, so they’ll both always have a really special place with me.
Who is the best live band you’ve ever seen?
Hands down it would have to be 30 Seconds To Mars. Everything from the production to the songs and the performance was just unbeatable.
What is the one song that you could listen to forever?
Kind of weird but When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars is just the perfect song to me. Just so raw and real with just vocals and piano. Doesn’t need any fancy production to hit hard.
What album, if any, was a turning point in your ‘musical life’ and why?
Probably Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses by Atreyu. It was the first time I had ever heard anything like it, and just intrigued me to no end. It was what influenced me to start learning guitar. I could still probably play that album on guitar front to back.
In 3 words, what makes a good album or song?
Simple is better
A festival or a gig? Why?
Gig for sure. Festivals are fun but we don’t get a chance to meet anyone, and hardly get a chance to even see the crowd. Gigs are more fulfilling in my opinion
Who would be your 3 dream festival headliners?
Bruno Mars, 30 seconds to mars, Brand New
Who are the best new band you’ve discovered lately that everyone should know about?
Don Broco. I’ve been listening to them for a few years, but they just started having their music available here in the states and I’ve never been happier. Everyone needs to know this band. Stop reading this and go listen.
What band or artist is your secret, or not so secret, guilty pleasure?
I guess Bruno Mars would be one, I know he’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I think he’s an amazing vocalist and songwriter, and his albums are always a go-to on a long drive. And probably Justin Bieber. I know most people wouldn’t even admit to listening but I for sure do. The songs he has are just some of the best written songs out there.
