Abject Joy

Tell us everything will need to know about you.

We’re a group of guys that have been doing this for a long time and we finally decided to release music. We hope you love it.

.

.

.

State your favourite genre of music and your reason.

Rock’n’roll.

.

.

.

Tell us your experience as a musician.

We’ve all been playing since grade school.

.

.

.

Tell us the theme of your song.

“Dictated But Not Read” is a phrase Ryan, our singer and songwriter, saw on the bottom of a letter. To quote Google, “The phrase is used at the end of a text to warn that the written material has not been personally written or verified by the author. The material may have been dictated to a secretary when the author had no time to proofread or edit it.” The song itself was meant to have been “Dictated But Not Read.” Now go and re-read the lyrics!

Name the people behind your success and thank them on this platform.

Everyone we have ever met and every single one of our listeners.

Tell us about your future goals.

Release another EP and then an LP soon thereafter. From there, the sky is the limit.

.

Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans.

We try to minimize studio trickery and maximize live, musical performances. Bringing the classics back.

.

.

.

Explain the changes you have observed so far in the music industry.

Recorded music is like a business card whereas your show (and all the accoutrement) is now the true product. Come see us live: https://www.abjectjoy.com/tour

State the artists you cherish most and your reason.

Too many to even list. We love Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, and The Cars. Creative men that wrote and sang with everything they had.

Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics.

All art is autobiographical. Everything you input into your brain ends up as output.

.

.

.

Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people to dance or making the kind of music with genuine message that inspires them.

Do what comes naturally and quickly, and you’ll usually write a great song.

.

.

.

Tell us what you know about copyright.

Enough to know that it is complicated.

.

.

.

Discuss the impact of a Performing Rights Organization.

Love them. Helps artists collect $! Very important.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your melody and instrumentation.

Some songs are done quickly, others take years. They all usually start with a tune, usually when out walking around.

.

.

.

Go into detail on the recording process of this song.

We tracked the rhythm section live and then slowly built the track from the bottom up. Did vocals last. Then spent a few months mixing it. Love how it sounds.

.

.

.

Discuss your music performance.

Keep it live and loose. Don’t think about it too much.

.

.

.

Tell us how you will rate yourself as an artist.

Hard to be objective with this one. We try to stay in the moment and do the best we can do. We hope it shows!
