Tell us how you start your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.
The Imposters were formed just under a year ago; both of us came from rock backgrounds performing with a number of different bands of past few years. The name came about since we were both playing in other bands at the time we formed The Imposters.
Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.
We would call ourselves indie pop but have labeled everything from rock, folk, and even country. I guess our sound is a little diverse in that respect. The concept behind our video was to create a story that was indicative of the lyrics, we wanted to take people on a journey with us through the song.
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 most artists know this is one of the most difficult industries in the world to succeed in. We do it because we love the creative process and writing songs. This band is relatively new but we have been part of the greater industry for a number of years so are aware of the challenges that await us.
Tell us about other members of your band, crew or music video director and how the music video was shot.
We had a great local team behind us to make the video, they do a lot of work with independent bands. We also had to call in a few favors from friends to get the job done….videos aren’t cheap to make!
Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.
As mentioned before we have been making music independently for a few years now but The Imposters being a relatively new band are just beginning our musical journey. Our goal now is to take our music to the world, ideally tour offshore and keep creating new music.
Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.
Creating songs and making music is in our blood it just happens organically. We draw inspiration from everything happening to and around us.
Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.
We will tell you the answer when we buy our first mansion…we aren’t there just yet!
