1. How did you get started as a band?
I started writing songs when I was 14-15 and taught myself the guitar. I play the drums and the bass as well, so I made little demos of those songs. I posted them on Myspace at the time, and performed them as a solo artist. A few months later a producer contacted me and asked if I was interested in recording my songs in better quality. That is when i started taking my project seriously. Since then, I have worked with different producers and musicians, until we have become today’s TARAH WHO? 🙂
2. How would you describe your sound?
We are an energetic-Raw Rock, with a slight touch of punk. or something like that…
3. What bands/artists would you say have influenced your style of music?
Hole, The Distillers, Foo fighters, Smashing Pumpkins…
4. Has the rise of YouTube & music streaming helped or hindered you as a band?
We have just started uploading music videos! It’s cool and exciting. I think it is USEFUL for sure because everyone seems to want to SEE what we do more than actually listen!! So … yeah .. we’ll see where this goes but so far, we are excited about our new music videos:)
We are making another one really soon. It will be another fun one. Stay tuned for its release:)
5. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not making music?
I like spending time with my family,friends. I like to Hike, travel and take pictures, paint…
6. What are your future plans musically? Tours?
I have just finished writing a full album so hopefully we can record the whole thing in January. When the recording is done, we will go on tour 🙂
We’d like to thank Tarah Who? for the interview & Stencil PR for setting it up.
