Here's my interview with a rocker by the name of David HK as he talks about is band Grimcrow & his solo work
How'd you get started in music? - Wow, music has been my life for as long as I can remember, even dating back to preschool. I recall the times when a song I really liked came on the radio, I would refuse to leave the car until the song was over. My mother is a classically trained pianist. She gave me piano lessons starting when I was 6. That's when I first started learning to read music and count beats. Then there was the saxophone starting when I was about 10. It was around that time I was really getting into Rock. A couple of years later I started playing guitar and the rest is history.Throughout Middle, and High School years, I had played in several bands and played many gigs in local clubs back when that scene was still vibrant. A couple of years after High School, I went to Five Towns College, after which I taught guitar. At one point I was teaching about 50 students a week on top of my day job which was really burning me out. Fast forward, the last band I was in was a Nu/Rap Metal act right before that scene broke out. We had a production deal and were shopping for labels. There was so much infighting in the band that we couldn't hold it together. It was over really stupid shit too. Aside from the run of the mill burnout that I was experiencing, I was getting a taste of how dirty and scummy the music Industry was and I just had it. I went on a hiatus from playing music for several years (I DON'T RECOMMEND ANYBODY DO THIS, I just ended up fat, drunk and very unhappy) and got into computers instead. When I found out recently that you can mix, master and distribute music on your own to a global audience with the streaming platform, I'm back at it with full force backed up by an awesome community.
