Where do you find continued inspiration?
Our inspiration comes from within.
We could say we listen to this band, we listen to that band but we don’t.
Lots of bands influence you over the years, however, if you look for inspiration from bands you never truly sound like yourself.
What do you hope to achieve?
We hope to gain world recognition and will keep working till we achieve this.
What are your struggles?
Daily life is the biggest struggle.
the best songwriters in the world usually have a lot of life skills which in turn come from daily struggles.
We aren’t talking teams of writers creating great songs.
We are talking individual writers who can put these struggles into words which resonate to thousands of people.
Have you achieved what you want?
Far from it, complacency is the biggest downfall for an artist so
if you continue to strive past goals and ambitions you become the best that you can possibly be.
How did you achieve your success?
Years and years of practice was a good start.
Is there anything else you would like to share?
For all you young aspiring musicians out there, never give up your dreams.
