My name is Brad Kinzel
Why this name?
I wanted a band name my mother could easily recognize
Do you play live?
I’ve never played for a formal audience. Not that I wouldn’t given the chance. I play for friends but mostly for myself.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
MP3 has changed the music industry in a good way. It’s the new radio. It’s another why for an artiest to get exposure. I can say that Iv heard things on the net that I may never would if I had looked into on my own simply because I didn’t want to lay the cash down for a no name. To risky i guess. I think it’s a good idea and i think the record industry should reconsider what it is there doing.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Of course I would.
Bob Dylan by far has been my biggest influence. He has opened my eyes to so many things. I also have to give a lot of credit to Jim Morrison, Neil Young, The Beatles, and Dave Matthews. Those would be my biggest influences, but not the only ones. I’m constantly hear new things and getting new ideas. In fact most of the music on the page where done a very long time ago. I’m working now to expand my arsenal of musical numbers. You should see a lot of new things coming soon.
Oh by far that would be Boulder, Colorado. My one and only big brother lives up there. I love to visit him and take in that part of this fine country. It’s inspiring and seems to free your soul.
Right now my main guitar is a Seagull Artist series Dread. I also use a Takamine EAN40C, Seagull S12 Plus(12 string), Epiphone Les Paul, and a Fender Amp. I also use nothing but Hohner marine band Harmonicas.
