Hey there everyone, DJ Dizzy here & I hared the pleasure of interviewing a band who call themselves Major Weakness & they had so much to share on their humble beginnings.
How'd you get started in music?
Originally from Deux-Montagnes in Quebec, Canada and Brazil, we played music since we are child, around 10-12 years old: the Canadian-Brazilian trio Major Weakness began this training in 2019 between practices in a family basement and a studio located in Montreal. After several formations going from two musicians to five, then two more, Major Weakness finally found his ideal recipe by being a trio. Composed of Nick G. Murray (guitarist, singer), DeeDee C (bassist and singer) and Jayy McLovin (percussionist)
Who are your inspirations or influences?
Major Weakness develops a sound somewhere between grunge, blues and rock. Inspired by Pearl Jam, Jack White, Acdc, Led Zeppelin, Kiss and other musical giants, Canadian new rock, blues music and UK punk: the trio immortalizes Major Weakness by composing songs that aim to listen as much as possible to any age, songs that make you think about current events and certain events. with their lyrics and finally, sounds that invite you to listen to them over and over again. It’s with hours of work, persistence, self-financing and most of all, a huge passion for them making Major Weakness get started on recording an EP. It’s at Studio Monocube, in Laurentides, Quebec, Canada with Jeff, the studio soundman, that the trio decides to go ahead and share their music with the world.
What advice would offer aspiring performers?
Persistence, huge passion , love of music: no music/no life/know music/know life
