Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
The Innocent is a song referring to a recent car accident/death concerning a very wealthy horse owner and stable assistant.
How does your music separate yourself from other artists and bands out there?
We play it and write it and sing it live! A trio with a very full sound of retro 70′s/21st century backdrop.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
The industry is and always will be tough to break into. Money and management causes most headaches. The music heals.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
My personal set back was while hitchhiking across the country to seek a better band resulted in a head first dive through the windshield of an old Volkswagon van and a struggle with near-death cancer for three years plus a studio burning down while recording Disco Momma, River Saint, and Shat in a Florida studio. Plus the usual dead end connections. The other players have very unique personal stories as well.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Stay true to your plan. Play a lot. Don’t let the idiots tell you what you are or should be. Be yourself.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Today, if you want a steady gig with benefits learn and practice reading sheet music. Stay healthy and always play with more experienced musicians. It’s the music that’ll see you through and your talent will shine.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
Play a lot of promos for radio stations if you can. The internet and video your bands tunes to get noticed. Post flyers around for your next gig to draw walk-in business. Club owners really want you to fill the place.
Where can people visit you?
Sunny south Florida in the Palm Beach area. That’s because we live in paradise while going through hell to play our music.
