Yesterday afternoon I went with all available band members to do an interview with WVIK’s Bruce Carter for his weekly program, “Art Talks”. He interviewed me, Morgan, and Jake about things like songwriting, how the band formed, and what it’s like to play music in the Quad Cities, and also played a few tracks from the new album. After listening to excerpts from the interview, I realized I still say “uh” way too much when being interviewed, blaaahhh!
Bruce had me relate the events leading up to my decision to make music my full time job, and regarding the financial risk factor, he said years back he had interviewed a very successful Czech painter who had originally moved the the US with his wife and child, and although they only had 70 dollars between them, he kept thinking “I have to paint!”
We found Bruce to be a very knowledgeable and gracious radio host. He was very enthusiastic about the album, and optimistic about our future as a Quad City band. The interview will be aired on 90.3 WVIK, Thursday, August 14th at 7:00 pm, and also on Sunday, August 17th at 1:00 pm. After the air date, you can find our interview, as well as many other local artist interviews at WVIK website. Hope you tune in!
