Tell us a little bit about the band and how long you have been together for some of our readers that may not know about the band?
Parts Per Million has been together with this line up for about a year. We had previously released some music about two years ago, and had been trying to get this going for a few years previous. It wasn’t until recent that we finally had a permanent line-up, which has finally allowed us to move forward. It’s hard finding 4 people that really gel together, and its nice to finally have that.
What got you into music and what keeps you going night after night playing?
David Lee Roth and my sister. Hahaha. Between seeing him on MTV as a little kid, and my sister bringing home a saxophone, I’ve always wanted to be a musician. Music will always keep me going. Writing and playing are in my blood and it never gets old when you write a new song, or learn someone else.
So, what is new with the band?..New Album out? New Videos?
We released our video 2020 VISION on April 9th, and are releasing it on all streaming services on May 1st. Following that, we release our full EP before Summer soon after
If you didn’t become a musician, what would you be doing right now?
Well, unfortunately I’m a plumber by day, and a musician by night. Like a superhero, but way less cooler.
What is the weirdest or funniest question you have ever been asked?
Having someone ask me if I can take off my pants on stage. Pretty damn funny.
If you can have your fans remember you for one thing, what would that be?
Simple. Our music, and its message.We are the many, They are the few. We can all do our part
On a scale of one to 2593, How good is your new single compared to your last single? (my attempt at humor, but please still answer)
It’s 2593. and truthfully, the last one is 2592. It’s not an ego thing. We know we are putting out really good music, and we brought it to some of the best in the business to help us record, shoot, and bring a message to the table that can’t be denied. If we sound cocky, watch our newest video. We think toy will agree with us that its pretty damn special.
What do you feel is the best song you have released to date and why?
That’s a tough call. Alot of our fans have said 2020 VISION, our latest. I’m a big fan of Undead, followed by the acoustic song we put out with our friend Samantha from Carpathia. it feels good to believe that each song gets better as e go.
Do you think you can get any better as a musician/singer? And if so, How would you achieve that?
Oh God, absolutely. Hahaha.I have SO mush room to improve as a guitar player, and as a writer also. The key is to stay humble, and keep putting work in. Im lucky to be surrounded by a bunch if extremely talented multi instrumentalists. It pushes me to be the best version of myself.
If you could give your fans one random fact about you that you think they should (or should “not” know) about you what would that be?
That at one point in my life, I was a hopeless, homeless addict. I think its important to share, because it might help someone who believes its not possible to get out of that rut to at least believe there is hope.
You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
Gray. Nice and Neutral
Who are you inspired by?
Devin Townsend, Opeth, Foo Fighters, Chris Cornell,Alice in Chains to name a few.
What’s an average day like for you?
I usually wake up at 430am and go until at least 11pm. Theres alot of hours in the day, and for me its all borrowed time.every chance I get to open my eyes in the morning is another shot at making this dream a reality
14.Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans?
I try and talk to and interact with every fan. it is extremely important for me to make sure they know how much we appreciate them
Have you ever dealt with performance anxiety?
Sure. All the time, but its easy to turn into an advantage. Theres alot of adrenaline hiding in those nerves
Tell me about your favorite performance venues?
Fete Music Hall in Providence,RI// Jewel in Manchester,NH are or two favorite venues we’ve played to date.
What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?
Stay on the path, no matter what. Failure is only a step towards the goal. keep the vision , and you will live the dream
