Written by Heath Andrews (www.reviewyou.com)
Do you play live?
I don't play shows usually as a solo musician. I will say this though. When I play with other guys in a band, we take it a little more seriously as far as being in a band goes. But alone, I just come up with some idea here and there, record them on my laptop, and post the songs online for some recognition or merit.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I came during a generation, where bands and musicians didn't need to sucker themselves into signing with a major record label, getting on TV and radio, and doing mass live performing as a way of bigger exposure. I came during a time where the computers and social-media made it more possible for the little or middle fish in the pond to get themselves heard. Despite my love for 90's rock, I highly doubt I would have been recognized back then like I am now supposedly, and it's not a money thing either. It's recognition and making an audience.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Don't know. I really don't know for sure, it's kind of hard to make it in the music business but as long we do what we love doing. I however, do not want to be told to be someone who I am not as obvious and want full creative control and copyrights to what I'm doing. It's really hard to say, I am open about major label deals. But I sometimes wonder, if it's worth the chase? But I'm still reluctant to actually do it. I can handle this, even if fame and success really bothers me sometimes.
Your influences?
Dead Kennedys, Green Day, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Motley Crue, Tesla, White Lion, Mother Love Bone, AFI, The Deftones, Steelheart, Murder Bay, Steve Vai, Minor Threat, Guns N' Roses, John Lennon, Bad 4 Good, Silverchair, Def Leppard, Metallica
Favorite spot?
San Francisco
Equipment used:
Just anything we can get via retail or eBay. Budget model guitars, crappy amps, etc. We go digital when recording...
