Hello! Thank you for speaking with me today!
Tell us about your latest project!
My latest project is a rock trio called The Wind-Up! We came together as a band officially in the summer of 2020. Our sound combines elements of raucous modern rock, hook forward post-grunge, and dreamy heavy riffs. We sound like if Foo Fighters had a few too many drinks with Pearl Jam. Started first in NYC's singer-songwriter acoustic community, we have taken a huge step forward and look forward to bringing our electric performances to the country this year. What is a dream venue for you to perform in?
We're from Connecticut so Toad's Place & Webster Theater come to mind. Obviously, would play in the bathroom of Madison Square Garden and our bassist is a big Yankee fan so we have to also say Yankee Stadium. Dream big right? What has been keeping you inspired to create recently?
Creating has been harder than ever. Being locked down through COVID has kept everyday inspiration at bay. Inspiration has come from our personal relationships and the artists and bands from our area who work so hard and challenge us to be better. What has been the biggest game changer in your career this far? The biggest game changer in my career has been securing our residency at Half Full Third Place. Half Full Third Place has helped us to develop an organic following, upgrade our gear, and focus on improving our act. We are so grateful to have someone bet on us and it has improved every element of our act. Who would you say is your biggest cheerleader in your career?
Our friends in Hosemen have been non-stop cheerleaders for us. They have attended almost every show and are our sounding board for so many of our challenges as we got started. We are constantly empowering each other and that has been so crucial for us.
How important do you think it is for artists to know and understand music history? Understanding music history lets you be intentional about either paving a new way or drawing on a nostalgic sound. While I don't think everyone needs a music degree, I think knowing the performers who paved the way for you will let you come up with a plan to pave your own. Any upcoming projects you want us to know about?
We'll be looking to pull together an album this year and will continue to bring our live performances to the east coast! Please let everyone know where they can keep up with you and your music!
