Osyron – Interview

PD:  How would you describe yourself or your band as an artist?

O: We’re first and foremost 5 friends who really enjoy making music together. We all listen to a variety of artists, and genres of music, but the focus of Osyron is definitely the realm of metal. We enjoy progressive elements, memorable melodies, big hooks and grooves. That’s really the essence of what we are as a band.


PD: Can you tell us briefly about your background – i.e. where you’re from, how you came to make music, etc.

O: We all grew up in different backgrounds and areas of Canada, and that informs our writing. The most common thread is of course we all had a love of some type of heavy metal music when we were younger, and that’s what drew us together.


PD: Who and what inspires you to make music, both in terms of musical and other influences? What do you like to write about in your songs?

O: We all draw inspiration from many avenues, but maybe some of the most important ones would be the music/musicians we love, the media we consume (whether that’s TV shows, movies, and video games), and our life experiences. As we do more things, more inspiration bubbles up and we love expressing that through music. There’s not really a limit on what a song, or album, could be about – whether it’s a story we wanted to tell, or how we want to work through things going on in our lives and the world as a whole.


PD: What are your aspirations as an artist?

O: I think we can all agree as a whole that our biggest aspiration is to tour. We absolutely love playing live, meeting new people, making new friends, and seeing new places. It’s definitely a bug we can’t shake!


PD: What is the proudest moment in your music career so far?

O: 100% being invited to play the 2023 edition of the 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise. We met so many new fans and made so many great friendships over that week, and we’ve been working hard to grow our reach. It was both a rewarding and humbling experience.


PD: Promoting one’s music is such a challenge these days, especially with so many new artists emerging from bedrooms in the day of the home studio. How is that going?

O: I think with every round of a release cycle we get better, it’s a challenge as you said. It’s something that’s completely new to us, and maybe even quite counter-intuitive for most of us as we’re not very “social media” savvy creatures. It’s not a type of media that any one of us really consumes, but it’s so important to be active in it.


PD: And how do you book and promote your live shows and tours? Any performances coming up?

O: Majority of our booking is actually handled by our frontman, Reed, and our manager Celestia. Other opportunities do come across our desk via our other promotional partners as well.


PD: What do you think about downloading music online? What about streaming sites like Spotify?

O: We’ll never be against access to music for everyone. Artists in general make very little money off of streaming, especially small ones like us. We make the bulk of our income from merch – and that is the best way to support us. Of course reach, and followers on the big streaming sites is important – it gets us in front of people. Same with downloads, if you download our album and then decide “Hey, these guys are my jam! I’d buy a shirt/see them in concert when they come through!” , that’s fantastic. If you download our album and then decide “Hey, not really my thing”, that’s also cool – you took the time to listen to us. That’s great!


PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?

O: Hold the Line by Toto. But since we didn’t write it, we covered it instead.


PD: Is there anything you don’t like about the music industry, which you would change if you could?

O: I mean, we’d obviously change the industry so that Osyron is the biggest band in the world. And not just on a BMI index. Let us into your arenas and stadiums, and come bang heads with us!


PD: So, what are you working on at the moment?

O: Currently we are looking at booking touring opportunities to get our music out to a broader market. We want to get into Europe and the States, and then beyond after that.


PD: Where can we learn more about you and buy your music/merch online?

O: Best way to stay up to date with us is through our website:
