2018 brings more exciting news for the band. Undecided Future will be playing at SXSW in Austin, TX, in March 2018, and has a new project in the works. www.undecidedfuture.com
Undecided Future dropped a new Single, “Intoxicated” in December 2017!
Their Back-to-School campaign consisted of a new single “HMU” which hit all digital platforms as well as 250 college radio stations across the U.S. Undecided Future’s fan base has been growing organically for the past 6 years. They have become known for their feel-good lyrics with great hooks, genre-smashing compositions, a unique combination of vocal harmonies, and an energizing, entertaining, and quirky stage performance.
Undecided Future currently has a performance contract at the Disneyland Resort Properties in Anaheim, CA, playing at Downtown Disney LIVE, and Disneyland/Tomorrowland Terrace. They entertained their largest crowd of 10,000+ opening for Smash Mouth, also KAABOO Festival, LA & OC County Fairs, recently headlined at the 2018 SpringBoard West Festival.
The band feels it’s important to give back by performing for local children’s hospitals, local high schools, and charities in their hometowns. Near to their hearts is CHOC Children’s Hospital, where Hayden our Bass player spent time in 2017 with testicular cancer, which he overcame.

Tell us about the genre of your music.
We are really a POP band but we are influenced mostly by Funk and R&B.
Tell us about the story behind your song.
It’s all about that girl that just takes over your brain the second you see her walk into a room.
Tell us about the problems you are facing as a musician.
We have been a band for 6 years, since 8/9th grade. Now some of us are in college and are working a regular job, and we only have time to be together on first-sun and weeknight. We use every hour likes it’s our last hour, so basically we are jamming pretty hard.
Tell us about the recording and production of the song.
“Intoxicated” was the first song we produced ourselves with the help of a college friend. We learned a lot more about production and the kind of sounds that we like to point our style to. Our original EP we have on iTunes now was the music we wrote and had produced by Cameron Webb, a big Hollywood producer while we were in high school. Check him out on the internet.

Tell us more about your music career, experience, and future goals.
We are winners of “Best. Cover. Ever” and we got to make a video with Jason Derulo. It was produced by Rickey Minor, a huge Capitol Records dude, pretty exciting to be able to hang with him during the filming of the show. During the 2nd day of filming our Bass player had to go get some chemo treatments for testicular cancer, so we had to pull in another Bass player friend from high school, who rocked it for Hayden.
Here is our Full Episode video with Jason:
Here is our audition video with Jason and Ludacris:
Here is our final duet with Jason. All 3 songs were Jason Derulo songs, but to win the show we had to re-create these 3 songs into our Undecided Future style. That’s why we won.
Brief us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.
