Radio Free Universe (Interview)

 

 Today we speak to George from Radio Free Universe. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? We started in 2010.  We all played in other bands local to Southern Ontario.  My former group hosted an original music night at the Corktown in Hamilton. ON. That’s where I met Ryan our current guitar player.  We’ve been through a few line-up changes.

Double Experience

Today we speak to Brock from Double Experience. Let’s start with this. What’s the history of your band? Ian and I have been writing music and playing onstage together since 2011. That was under a band called “Colfax”. It was a deliberate choice to use that band as a gigantic growth period where we would see what does or doesn’t work without fear of critical mistakes. Once we fully explored our definition of being what being a DIY band meant, Ian and I started Double Experience in 2014. What’s your musical history? (Trained or Amateur)? Ian and I were exposed to as much music as the average student is. Our teacher was very much dealing in medical music; the kind […]
