Blind Perception - 10 Questions Music Interview
Hailing from Southern Indiana, Blind Perception has been on the music scene since 2016 offering up a blend of 60's hippie rock, 70's hard rock, 80's metal and 90's grunge that comes out as hard rock with great grooves and a familiar feel. At the heart of their sound is a passion to give their fans an unforgettable musical experience which can be heard in their new 6-song EP - Industrial Raunch. The band is comprised of Tommy ( drums/lead vocals); Brent ( lead guitar); Theron (rhythm guitar) and Charlie ( bass/vocals).
Was there something (an experience) or someone in your life that was the "catalyst" for you to start writing music? Tell us about it.
Started writing poetry in middle school that turned into songwriting in high school. My mother wrote poetry, so I guess that's where I got it from.
Let's get this out of the way. What is the CRAZIEST thing that has ever happened to you in your music career?
Nothing really crazy has happened yet. Touring the world with some band's we look up to would be crazy to us.
What has been the high point of your music path?
Still waiting for the high point. We co-wrote "A Captain Goes Down With His Ship" with Nashville songwriter Roy August, that is very cool.
So, how do you approach songwriting or what is your creative process like?
Most of the time Brent, Theron, or Charlie will come up with a riff and send it to me, then I'll write the lyrics. Other times I am inspired by a drum beat or a melody I hear in my head.
What do you see as the biggest challenge facing Indie Artists today? Or, if you could ask the music industry to change one thing, what would it be?
To give Indie artists a chance on mainstream Radio. There's so much great Indie music out there that is better than a lot of the music being played on mainstream Radio or the same handful of classic rock music playing over and over daily.
If you could share the stage with one other artist or band, who would it be and why?
For me it would be the Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl Is a musical genius. Being a drummer/singer myself, he inspires me.
What are your rehearsals generally like? Or, how do you prepare for a live show?
We usually go through all of our set list and then work on new song's we are working up. Also talk about song idea's we may have had during the week.
Pick one song that was your greatest challenge to write. Tell us about it!
"Too Drunk" was challenging in the fact that I wrote the chorus 3 yrs after I wrote the verses. I just couldn't come up with a hook I was happy with. Then 3 yrs later, I heard some elderly men talking about when they were young and too drunk to stay home, and it clicked.
What's coming up in the future?
We are already working on a 12 song album. Since we have released 2 EP's we wanted to do a complete album. We hope to get back out doing shows once things open back up.
