What advice would you give to other artist/bands trying to get momentum in the industry?
Work hard and be as critical as possible about your shows. No one goes to a show to listen to a CD. They want to see a performance. So cut loose have fun and get crazy on stage.
Good Management and team that you can trust.
Who writes the Lyrics, is it a group effort?
Ed Wiggins writes the rapped vocals and I (Ryan Wilnau) write the sung portions, while the other members contribute in both. It’s a collaborative effort.
What is the last song you played in your car? Lose Yourself by Eminem.
Besides Social Media, and Flyers, do you practice any unique methods of promoting upcoming shows?
