Heres my interview with the band, The Bugs
How do you get started in music?
We were all influenced by family members playing music at a young age. Mark and Paul where 15 when they were in there first band together. Later on in, Barry and Mark formed a musical bond and soon after ran into Paul talked about the project he was into it and The BuGs were born.
What are your inspirations or your influences?
There’s a lot going on. Lennon and McCartney, Ozzy Osbourne, Duran Duran, The Doors to Yngwie Malmsteen. To name a few.
What advice would you offer aspiring performers?
We truly believe the best of the best do it for nothing other than the pure love of doing it, that being said…….. never give up on your dream!
How do you set yourself apart from other bands or singers?
Well for starters we do not use any quantizing, harmonizers, pitch corrections or any of that crap. Assuming it’s a level playing field one thing that would separate us from the masses is that we march to the beat of our own drum, and believe ww have a timeless niche to our music.
Any new gigs or albums in the future?
We are currently working on our fourth effort, yet to be titled. We Also plan on releasing a video for Over You in the near future, as well as a few more videos throughout this year. At this time we are only going to Schedule a few local shows (unless presented with an opportunity ) to keep chops up and possible live EP. The band is on fire right now with material so our main focus is documenting it in the studio and getting it out there for the masses.
