THE COMMUNAL WELL

RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW THE COMMUNAL WELL WHAT HAPPENED?

Thanks for joining us in the virtual RGM lounge today, grab a brew and take a seat.

What made you decide that music is a thing for you?

Since I was very young, I always had an affinity for music. The different ways that music can make one feel. Submersive, unique, individual and universal all at the same time. My father was a poet and I thought that I would become a writer, but when I matured I realized that music was the vehicle.

Introduce us to you all and your musical history.

The first records I listened to were my parents. Bridge over Trouble water Simon and Garfunkel. In high school I listened to everything. I had a passion for things that went out of the box, like when Joni Mitchel started playing with jaco pasturius and Pat Metheny. I saw Miles Davis and Muddy Waters live just before they died. I go for music that weaves a rich tapestry, and takes me places.

What’s the live music scene like in Paris right now? Anyone we should be looking out for (Bar you of course)

I live in the 20th arrondissement in Paris. There is so much music around me, and next door in Montreuil. Its vibrant and we have so many cultures.

I’ve seen a lot of people struggling for support recently online. Whats your view on the industry?

Its becoming more democratic with streaming. The power is now with the curators and the distribution platforms.

Where do you feel you currently sit within the music industry?

Im starting to find my niche.

Do you ever worry about people taking things the wrong way or cancel culture? Discuss….

I think if you speak with your heart, and with empathy most people wont take you the wrong way; Ive gotten better about this as Ive got older.

What was your best experience on stage?

I have had so many blissful experiences on stage. What I like is when I feel like the musicians and the public are in the same emotional wave, on the same bus and enjoying the ride.

Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about. 

Im a crazy Arsenal fan.

What are the next steps you plan to take as a band to reach the next level?

Better writing. I want to get to a place where there are no barriers between myself and the listener.

I hear you have a new music, what can you tell us about it.

We are releasing Bound To Break on June 7th. It will start with three songs, Bound to Break, Mexico, and Cory and then there will be more songs each month. Bound to Break is about how important it is to be truthful with your partner.

What was the recording process like?

We recorded most of the basic tracks at Studio De La Seine in Paris. Before this I mostly single tracked in my house. It was nice not having to do the engineering this time, and just focus on performance.

What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tunes?

Letting go even more. Not getting in the way of the song.

Would you change anything now it’s finished?

There are always things to perfect, but at some point you have to move to the next song.

Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?

Looking forward to playing these songs live!
