Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

Our genre is indie rock, our music has a lot of inspiration from jazz (that can be heard in the drums and chords used in guitar and keys) but we are also a high energy band that also loves rock music and decided to become an indie rock band where we can create music that you can dance to, but also music you can chill and relax to.

The concept behind the tune “Hollow Bones” is a person who has a hard time finding their place in the world and is constantly searching for it, but always ends up finding the same lonely feeling. The first verse describes them going home to find comfort and release from the lonely feeling, but ends up feeling alone and their breath tells them to hide away. In the second verse it is describing what that person is feeling when they have a panic attack, because being lonely for too long can lead to a meltdown. At the end the song, it goes into halftime and says “always separated from the world” showing that they have come to terms that there is just not a place for them here on earth.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

As classical musicians it has always been hard for us to break free from the box that classical music puts you in. It is very hard to feel satisfaction or feel like you are a good enough musician in the classical music industry, because of the competition, and perfection that is expected. When we finally got a band together so much stress and fear of being a bad musician was released and we finally did not have to read notes off of a page and our creative minds linked together and we got to breathe and create some amazing music together!

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

Our song was recorded locally, at a studio in Louisville, KY called TNT, right by our school. We each paid for an hour, and recorded two songs in three and a half hours. We had 3 rehearsals in one week leading up to the recording, because it is hard when you are starting out and don’t have much money, we needed to get the song perfect in the first few takes.

It was a really fun experience and we are saving up to release more!

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

We have all been involved in music at a very young age, being in youth orchestras, ensembles, going to camps in the summer, and even boarding school for music. We have done work in the music industry such as weddings with viola and guitar and classical bass. Our end goal in the music industry is to be able to share our music with the world and continue to let our creativity to flow. If we had an ultimate goal, it would be able to create music popular enough to be able to all live comfortably off the money we make selling and performing our Quality Cable music.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

What inspires me to write always depends on what the current situation in my life is at the time, “Hollow Bones” was written during a time in my life when I was struggling with anxiety. Our other single “Wheels Up” was written on an airplane heading to school, it was based off a man I saw upset and nervous the short flight was not serving alcohol. Our songs tend to be based of the experiences we have in life.
