Interview 19 – Holiday State

1) Tell us about how your band was formed? Well...we're brothers so we've always been playing music and singing and dancing around the house growing up. We've done some individual projects and been in other groups and bands together but it always involved other musicians as well. Those different projects ended just because a lot of the people we worked with weren't dedicated enough or didn't have the same goals in mind as we did. So in late 2014 we decided to start a group just the three of us and it's been good ever since. 2) How would you describe your music? Our music is a mixture of mostly country/pop. Very melodic, catchy hooks, meaningful lyrics, and 3 part harmonies. 3) What is the inspiration for your music? Life in general. Real stories. Good and bad situations, ups and downs rela...

Interview 8 – Erick Ramos

I am inspired by Erick Ramos. He is smart, handsome, talented, and never wants to stop learning - plus he is a fan of my work, so that is a big plus as well! He found on social media and would hit me up about the process of filmmaking...and from there we became good friends. Now we talk ALL the time! 1. When did you find your passion for film-making? I began like so many, at a young age. I can recall writing action stories like those of the Mission Impossible and James Bond series. However, like many of us, I also grew out of it and settled in the normality of life. 2. How did you begin? It wasn't until my late twenties that I found that passion within to really create film. A lot of that I owe to my dear friend Michael who I occasionally would talk with at any given time about film and th...
