Hi Carbon Love! Great to speak with you today!
The pleasure is all mine interview person!
What have you been working on lately?
We are wrapping up our second album, and we're rehearsing for our "Tiny Desk" at the Kitchen Studios in Dallas.
Who inspired you to get into music?
My dad played a huge part in it - he quit his job as a stock broker almost 30 years ago and started his own business selling golf sunglasses. Taking that risk and setting that example gave me the courage to pursue my passion as well.
When was the first time you recall thinking that you wanted to pursue music as your career?
Music has always been a part of my life, but it began as a way of earning scholarship money for college. My love affair with songwriting really didn't get going until my twenties, and I really decided to go all in a few months after I graduated.
What is your favorite song you've ever released and why?
So far I think our favorite is "Dreamin". We released it as a single because it was totally different from our first album sound, and we created it in a day. As it turns out, the song that we spent the least time on has turned into our most popular to date.
Who are some of the artists currently inspiring you?
Tame Impala, Moonchild, Dua Lipa, Maroon 5, The Weeknd
Any plans to start performing live as shows pick back up?
Yes! We play in Deep Ellum (in Dallas) on a regular basis, but we're hoping to expand to other areas of Dallas and beyond as live shows continue their expansion.
What is your favourite song to perform? We haven't released this song yet, but we have one called "Your Man". It's very eclectic and far out, but it's been our go-to finale song for almost a year now. We wrote it as a joke, but people seem to love it! I sing it in this high register Prince style, and it's super easy to be silly and have fun with.
What are you hoping to see in the music world as it continues to evolve? The beauty of modern music is that it's becoming more and more of a cultural and stylistic melting pot - I don't love "Old Town Road", but I love that it represents country and hip hop coming together to make a hit. I hope to see many more unorthodox pairings as people venture into new genre territory.
Please let everyone know how they can keep up with you and your music!
