Interested in being featured in the “Better Know An Artist” series? Artists must be from the D/FW area. To get in line, submit your answers to the questions (duh…) and attach a photo (landscape orientation), a link to music that can be embedded, and any events you might want to promote coming up and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Generally, posts are made on a first come, first serve basis, but I favor artists I like, and will bump you up occasionally if you have a big show or album release coming up, depending if I already have someone locked into that slot. If you’re doing the interview as a band, please include initials so I know who’s speaking. Thanks. Anyways, here are the questions.
1 For starters, tell us a litle about yourself. How did you first get into music? And when did you know this is what you want to do for a living (money be damned)?
2 How would you describe your music to someone who hasn’t heard it before?
3 Who are some of your biggest musical influences, and why?
4 Which of your songs mean the most to you, and if you don’t mind me asking why?
5 If you could open for any act, dead or alive, who would it be, and why?
6 Any favorite new musical acts, local or otherwise?
7 What’s your “stranded on an island” record?
8 Moving onto the homefront, what are your favorite (and least favorite) things about the DFW music scene?
9 Favorite DFW venue to play (or see a show). Why?
10 Any favorite local acts people should be looking out for?
11 And for shits and giggles, what’s a fun fact that most people don’t know about you?
