Listen to the new song from Elevator – Let Me In
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
We are from Mckinney Texas and the four of us met through college. Dave (vocals and guitar) formed the band with Roberto (drums) who brought in Justin (bass) and James (guitar) came to us after a few tries at trying to find a good fit.
What do you have coming up? What are some of the new projects we can expect to see?
We have a few shows lined up through April and will be releasing a few more songs as we work towards our first album. We are also writing songs with our friends in the band Oncidium Alliance which we will be playing shows with soon. We are really excited for what’s to come this spring and hopefully a summer tour in Texas and the Southeastern states.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
Our song Let Me In is one of our first songs written and recorded. We feel the song truly shows the heart of our music with the big intro and strong chorus. It shows the passion of our music and we think people can really get behind this song.
How does your music separate yourself from other artists and bands out there?
When the band first started I (Dave) had mentioned about making music with “big moments” and when we write we take a simple idea and break it down, tear it apart, and build it into the best songs we can. We try not to rush into writing songs. We want our music to not just be another song or another band, we are trying to write music that not only us, but others will enjoy.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
Money. Plain and simple. We are fortunate enough to have equipment to record on our own so we will be able to record without huge studio fees but having to record and produce our album will be a challenging task.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Well it took us a long time to get going. We had to find good people to play with that were not only good musicians but fun people to be with. Money is always an issue but if you take your music seriously enough than you can have success.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Bands need to be able to communicate successfully with one another or you will not be able to write and perform with any success. If you can’t communicate, things can boil over and words get scrambled ending in arguments that can severely hurt the band.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
To have fun with your music and do not let anyone discourage you.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
We typically use websites like Facebook and word of mouth. We find it easier to simply talk to people about our music than if they want to hear us they can come to our show.
