Maidon – Interview

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

PD: What type of artist are you?

M: I am a singer-songwriter who makes catchy pop-rock songs with reminiscences of past decades.

 

PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.

M: Originally from Spain, for several years I took part in different bands. After some time off music and already settled in London, two years ago I started a new indie project preceded by a period of fresh creativity. The rest of the story cannot be told, it must be heard.

 

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

M: Musical influences come mainly from the 80’s and 90’s. British and American pop & rock has been the base of my music. Non-musical ones include the world surrounding me, lovers or my mum.

 

PD: What are your dreams and goals?

M: This is a good one. Probably the same as most of the musicians who write songs and have a passion for music, to have the opportunity to be heard by as many people as possible. To be able to play in front of thousands in a remarkable venue.

 

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

M: I write my own songs as the majority of the world artists do. They are about very different things, whatever comes up to my mind when the inspiration shows.

 

PD: How do you promote your band and shows?

M: Through the band’s official website and socials. With a minimum budget we also sometimes manage to do a small PR campaign.

 

PD: What do you think about downloading music online?

M: It is something that it is part of the digital world in which we live. If you pay a small and reasonable price as you do in iTunes I think it is a fair deal for both the artist and the listener. However, I personally prefer streaming as the way people can listen to all the music they want.

 

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

M: I honestly wouldn’t be able to name one, there so many song I wish I’d written that it is no possible to pick one as the only one. But if you want any of them; “Starman” by David Bowie – it is a perfect song right from the start and all the way to the end.

 

PD: What are some of your pet peeves?

M: I could mention here as some of the main; rudeness in general and disdain about people’s work and creation.

 

PD: What is your proudest moment in music?

M: Probably every time I have been lucky enough to write a good song I have had that feeling.

 

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

M: At the moment I writing more songs for this project and trying to promote the tracks already out there – which is not easy. I am also considering other projects and always on the lookout for new opportunities.

 

PD: Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there.

M: There are no scheduled shows at the moment but you cannot miss the first opportunity you have to see Maidon live because without a doubt it will literally blow your mind.
