Exclusive Interview with Trish Discord

 


So Trish Discord, how did you come up with such an interesting name?

I thought the word “Discord” for me pretty well as it describes feelings of unrest and expressing those feelings. I found out later that the app Discord was a thing but still liked my name enough to keep it anyway!



Where are you from and what's it like in your hometown?

I am from Whitestone in Queens, NY. It is on the outskirts of queens and has a suburban feel to it while still being able to access the city and other areas of NYC. I like that there is almost a small town feel without it being too small where you run into the same people over and over.



Trish can you tell us about your background and how you became a music artist?

I played guitar throughout the years and took singing lessons since high school. I always loved writing songs and only in recent years realized I should finally release them to the world. I have an office job but day but always was passionate about music. Now my office job funds my music and I manage both! 


Could you tell us about your latest project?

“The Aftermath of 2016” is about the political and personal events that happened in 2016 that had a rippling effect on the years following. I was in London during brexit and returned home to the US afterward to Trump being elected while being in a long distance relationship that wasn’t working out. This album is about all those components and coming to terms with them.



What's the average day of creativity for Trish Discord?

I would say most of my songs come to me at 2am when I am trying to sleep and a melody finds it’s way into my head. I then record a voice memo and the following day try to create lyrics and think about the mood of the song I am going for.



Besides music, what are your other interests?

I love traveling (which is what the song Take me Away is about with finding an escape through traveling), trying new cuisines, going to wineries, and axe throwing!



Is it anybody you like to work with and can you tell us why?

I would love to work with Mitski or David Byrne cause I feel like they have creativity off the charts and we could come up with something amazing!



What can we expect from you in the near future?

I will definitely keep working on new content and plan to release a few singles in between when my next album release would be.


Any last remarks?


Be sure to check out the music video for “I can’t wait to forget you” and keep an eye out for the “In Another Life” video coming out soon! https://youtu.be/bweKWTpleJs Thanks for featuring me!

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
