PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
TL: “It wasn’t always Indie Rock music that interested me” says Cams, “My Dad, Austrian born, had a passion for Jazz music. Jacques Loussier trio and Eugen Cicero were just a few of the vinyls he would play late at night while he sunk into his thoughts over a Whiskey”
Sam’s fascination with Groove. “I started playing drums when I was 12. I had a heavy dose of Motown and blues when growing up, and my love for funk has had a massive impact on the way I play. My favourite recording artist is Chaka Khan and My most influential drummer is Dave Garibaldi from Tower of Power.”
Rob remembers, “My first encounter with my mind being blown musically was when I was 6”. “Mr Angel came into our assembly and tore up cello, pretty much shredded on it. I then spent 2 years learning the cello but the classical music wasn’t cutting it anymore. Especially when you’re 8 and listening to Led zeppelin and Queen.”
For Tom, “There was always music in the house. Mum loves Music. Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, ABBA, QUEEN, Simon and Garfunkel, ELO, Bob Dylan, Eva Cassidy and on and on…Dad Loved music too. Luke Kelly, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Glen Campbell, The Fureys, The Chieftains, Charlie Pride, The Dubliners…..
My parents actively shared their love of music and favourite artists with us”
PD: What are your dreams and goals?
TL: To make Albums and Tour.
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
TL: We are all involved in the writing process. Tom writes the words and subjects vary from song to song. Often leaning toward Psychological and sociological themes of discovery and human growth.
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
TL: Social Media. Direct contact with Fans. Word of mouth. Carrier pigeons. Smoke signals. 2 cans connected with a piece of string and a Town Crier.
PD: What do you think about downloading music online?
TL: Mixed feelings to be honest. The convenience and ability to discover new music is unmatched. However you can’t beat leafing through album artwork as you listen laying on your bedroom floor.
PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?
TL: You want it Darker – Leonard Cohen – He asks of us what we fear to see.
PD: What are some of your pet peeves?
