INTERVIEW: Cloudkicker

1)            What do you want people to hear most when they hear your music?

By this point I've learned that everyone hears something different because everyone brings different ideas with them. I know what I hear and what I was feeling when I made the music, and I simply hope that others can find something meaningful or thought-provoking within that.

2)      Having music on Band Camp, along with other such platforms in music right now such as Sound Cloud, Spotify and others, do you feel that music is moving into a virtual age?  Personally, I fully support the idea of downloading songs for free from Band Camp and then if I like them buying them on vinyl.

Music was "moving into" a virtual (or the digital) age in 2001. It's there, man.

3)      How important of a factor do you feel that record labels play in music these days when pretty much anyone can put their music on the internet as opposed to having to hand out demo tapes at shows, the distribution record labels can offer, etc.   It just seems like it’s a bit easier these days to succeed as a band- and even build up a strong fan base- before a label possibly comes calling for you.

Well the upside is that everyone has the same potential for exposure. The downside is that everyone has the same potential for exposure. You still have to be really good or have some otherwise hard-to-pinpoint quality that draws people in. 

4)      If you could tour with any single band or musician who would you pick and why?

Maybe Boston. They seem like they would have blown your head off back in the day.

5)      Who is your favorite New Kid on the Block?

The Chinese one.

6)      Who would win in a musical fight: Jack Black or Jack White?
I don't know what a musical fight would look like or how you would judge the winner, but Jack Black has way more songs specifically about rocking so maybe he would have more stamina.
