Listen to the new song from Obsidian – Scarecrow
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
We all came from different parts of the country, but met in Los Angeles while attending Musicians Institute. When we jammed, our music styles meshed together pretty well and it became instant chemistry.
What do you have coming up? What are some of the new projects we can expect to see?
We just finished writing a bunch of new material and plan on expanding our fan base throughout southern California by way of live performances.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
Scarecrow is part of our 3 song EP that came out in February. It’s a very guitar driven, riff based song that’s a lot of fun to jam to.
How does your music separate yourself from other artists and bands out there?
Our music has many influences between all the members in the band. We try to combine a unique blend of styles to come up with something that just rocks.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
Keeping your name out long enough to stand out from the rest of the bands in LA. And booking shows without paying for them is also a big challenge for bands in this area. It’s a very competitive field.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
Finding a new guitar player was definitely a set back for us. It’s very hard to keep that momentum as a band when you have something like that happen. Which in our case, was replacing an amazing guitar player which took almost 6 months.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Getting your money’s worth!
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Being in the genre of rock, it is very repetitive and it’s hard to keep things fresh. Find something that sets you apart from all the other bands.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Two words, playing live.
