Was there something (an experience) or someone in your life that was the "catalyst" for you to start writing music? Tell us about it.
There are many different artists who inspired me to write our songs, but the most common one that always comes up is Lady Gaga. She taught me (Evan) how to be myself without regret or apology. He upbeat electro-dance style is my favorite type of music to listen to and I eventually starting writing my own.
Let's get this out of the way. What is the CRAZIEST thing that has ever happened to you in your music career?
The craziest thing in my career was when I got to perform in Florida for Super Bowl LV. That was a great trip and it was such an honor to be invited.
What has been the high point of your music path?
Just being able to even release music into the world and getting people to hear it.
So, how do you approach songwriting or what is your creative process like?
Normally, I'll be going through something or I will be put in a situation that will have altering affects on my life and I will be thinking, "hey! This could be a song". Then the lyrics usually come first just so I know what the song is gonna be about, then the music comes next.
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?
Right now the pandemic is the biggest challenge, yes I know that sounds so cliché but it's true. Not being able to tour or travel around makes it pretty difficult but I know we'll be back on track soon.
If you could share the stage with one other artist or band, who would it be and why?
Lady Gaga. I just love her so much and she inspired my sound and lyric choice and we have the same energy on stage I feel so I would love to (hopefully) perform with her one day.
What are your rehearsals generally like? Or, how do you prepare for a live show?
I like to start weeks and weeks in advance. Normally we will practice for 8-10 hours. I like the shows to have meaning and I want the fans to really enjoy watching them. I also love engaging with the fans on stage because I want them to feel like they are a part of the fun and not just being preached at.
Pick one song that was your greatest challenge to write. Tell us about it!
The song that was most difficult to write is this song we have called "Karen". We spent hours on hours, day after day, week after week, trying to come up with the best catchy verse's and chorus to make the song a hit. We turned to YouTube and TikTok for funny quotes that a typical Karen says to make the song listenable and catch the attention of all audiences.
