Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)

PD: What type of artist are you?

WF: Band – rock n roll , pop , indie  (country ? Folk? Motown?)

 

PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.

WF: New (well new not long before covid) 4 piece – 2 guitars , bass , drums , vocals and backing and with the benefit of a studio strings , brass , you name it .

 

PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?

WF: Do you answer this with a list of 20 because you dont want to miss anyone out ie if you say Beatles , do you have to also say the Stones or have I done enough with the Beatles ?

Fleetwood mac , Beatles  , Beegees , radiohead , George Michael , Michael Jackson , Otis , Marvin …….. Rocky Balboa , Good Will Hunting  , Shawshank  🙂    Do you see what I did there 🙂

 

PD: What are your dreams and goals?

WF: World peace ? Cheaper bills ? …. musical recognition  , crowds singing out tunes

 

PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?

WF: Ste writes the songs (but the band make the songs) They’re about whatever im feeling at the time I write it , plus what the chords and vibe of the music “pull out of me” – it can be love, life, having a great time or going through a bad one  – of course , if I was to off the top of my head think about the album and what each song is about …

Let is go – is about getting out of a bad relationship and thinking you were going to feel bad and it turns out …you feel frickin amazing …and “bring it on” I absolutely love singing that song especially the crescendo “ is that all you got ?! …is that what you’re waiting for now?!”

I wont do song by song …we can do that another time if wish 🙂

 

PD: How do you promote your band and shows?

WF: Social media , sharing the music , doing interviews like this – its all about getting heard really – the people that have heard us ..love us .

 

PD: What do you think about downloading music online?

WF: Im not 100% sure what angle you are coming at ? Do you mean as opposed to buying vinyl or do you mean illegal downloading ?

In short im about people getting to hear the music – all music ,  im a big believer in melody , if the melody is right then “you’ve got em” ie after that the production and package is important …but youve gotta have the melody!

 

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

WF: Lyrics wise id probably say something like Praying for time by george michael or common people by pulp – amazing tunes but with such imagery and such great stories.

But honestly im just a fan of great music there are 100s of songs I wish I wrote

 

PD: What are some of your pet peeves?

WF: Photo shoots

 

PD: What is your proudest moment in music?

WF: Releasing “borrowed from tomorrow” our album due out 26/12/2021 I honestly cannot wait  – I couldnt be prouder of it and cannot wait for it to be heard

 

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

WF: Album launch as per above , but we wont stop there , we are constantly in the studio , plus we are devising a plan for gigs in 2022

 

PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from? 

WF: Waiting Forever – Let It Go (hearnow.com)
