Greywind [Musician Interview]


Who inspired you to make music?

Growing up the main bands we were inspired by were the likes of My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, Fall Out Boy, Jimmy Eat World and Thrice.

What is your creative process like? Do you start with lyrics? Instruments? Concept?

Usually I’d come up with the rough melody/lyrics of the song acoustically and then I’d show it to Steph and we’d perfect it together and record rough versions using voice memos on my phone. We prefer hearing new songs in their rawest form so we know if the song is special enough to get worked on more before recording it properly.

What do you feel is the best song you have released/written and why?

We’ll be releasing the best song we’ve ever written this autumn. It has everything we love about music in it and we’re so excited for people to hear it. The end of this year is going to be very special for us.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

Do what you love. What’s the point in doing anything else?

If you could be any kind of cookie, what would it be and why?

I would be a chocolate chip cookie because I’m perfect in every single way too.

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

The internet has allowed new bands to be heard without needing to constantly tour. We’re from a small town in Ireland called Killarney and without the internet our music wouldn’t have been discovered by people as quickly as it has been.

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

Female artists should receive the same respect and opportunities that male artists are given.

What is the most useless talent you have?

I’ve never lost a game of Connect Four!

When you’re done with music, what do you want people to think when they talk about
you and your work?

We want to be remembered as one of the best rock bands to ever come out of Ireland.

What is your most recent project/upcoming project?

We’ll be releasing new music this autumn and we can’t wait for people to hear it! We’re so insanely proud of what we’ve created.
