Discuss your recording experience with your producer.
Probably the best experience we’ve had as a band. When it comes down to details and knowledge of sound and music he was very helpful. He helped open our eyes to new ideas.
Discuss what comes first and last while creating a song.
I think it’s a feeling thing. We have written songs in so many different ways, and some of the most liked songs have been written in an hour.
Tell us the piece of advice you will give to a new artist.
Our piece of advice would be to write the way you feel. Lots of people in the world experience the same problems in life, so when you express that in a song people can relate and you capture the listener… and enjoy what you do always!
Discuss your worse experience in the music business.
Playing at the wrong venue! When you play at a small town country bar and your music is hard rock… people tend to yell “turn down the suck”. Then the fight is on.
Tell us how you deal with rejection.
Rejection is part of the music world. Even the biggest names in music history have been rejected and they have climbed to the top. Not everyone is going to like your music; it is just reality so truly understanding that helps to see past the negative feeling. Just because one radio station doesn’t like you, doesn’t mean the others won’t. Keep your head up people!
Tell us what you are doing to impact the people around you.
We play the music that our fans want to hear. We fundraise for the volunteers of our community. And we interact with people expressing our gratitude and love for their support.
Tell us the music that makes you happy.
As the lead singer of FIP, all music influences me in some way. I listen to everything from symphonic music to hard rock to rap. What makes me truly happy is to see the heart that someone or a band has put into a piece of art they have created. You just can’t ignore the true passion.
Tell us how you make instrumentation to your song.
We are a 3 piece band, so to be creative and write music to sound like a 4 or 5 piece is harder than people think. When we write the instrument side of things, we try to bounce between the bass taking the lead or the guitarist taking the lead. Make the drums as full as we can and mix the two guitars to carry one or the other. The vocals are also used as an instrument… we believe in creating layers, recording or live.
Tell us how you feel when you sing and your fans sing along to your song.
Well, we truly think as original artists, this is what we live for. When this happened for the first time it almost made me stop singing in that current moment. You feel like you have achieved what you set out to do, and that is to truly connect with people.
Tell us the goals you aim to achieve when creating a song.
To get your message out and to have people relate. The goal is to capture the listener… and to get on the radio.
Tell us your approach to songwriting.
Our approach to songwriting is to naturally let the process flow. It seems if you try to force something, it will never truly come out the right way.
Tell us how you plan to develop a unique music style.
We are all inspired by our favorite artists, but because of our true love for all genres, we think the different styles give us a creative and unique sound.
Tell us how to record a song.
Multi-tracking – Layout your ghost tracks with the drums…layout your guitars, then bass, then your vocals. Very basic we know but the key to perfection is to not sound too perfect. Be creative and make layers to fill the song and to force the brain to think about what it’s listening to.
Tell us if you are collaborating with other songwriters or you write alone.
We write as a single band… sometimes we write as individuals and bring our own songs to the table, but we make sure to involve everyone’s style so all parties enjoy what they’re playing.
Discuss your experience with fans.
Well, I’m going, to be honest here and say in the past there have been some mixed feelings. Some people pose as fans but really do not want to see you succeed (I guess then they wouldn’t be your fans). The rest of the people that follow us and support us are amazing and we could never do this without them. Cliché I know – It very true. Thank you to all our fans!
State your experience with booking gigs and shows.
It’s hard to get your name out and to be taken seriously. Lots of places will not even listen to your music or book you for a show if you’re not under a label, but be dedicated. Playing bars is hard to get your originals out because they hired you to play cover songs, and very unbelievable… but we do it anyway!
Tell us if you consider a song placement in TV or Film.
We might have our songs in an upcoming film called Thunderstruck 18. Hopefully, it all works out but yes we definitely would love our music to be involved in TV or Film.
Elaborate on the song.
It’s all about not letting any generation get pushed around, controlled, or put in their place. We all have a voice; we just need to use them in the right way.
Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.
Our name came from each of our experiences in music and life. How the world seems to bring things together and put them into play. How the past worked out and how everything just falls into place.
The album name is a mix of what every song means. It touches base on the chaos of what we deal with physically and mentally as humanity. Everything is a learning experience (good or bad) so just embrace it, and learn from it.
