DJ Interviews Glass Alice Part 1

Hey-hey everybody DJ Dizzy here & I had the esteemed pleasure of interviewing a band who answer to the name Glass Alice who had so much to say on their musical careers. I had to do each of them individually so they'll be in different parts so here's part one of the interview.

Anthony Village - Bassist

How'd you get started in music?

Did band in middle school and both parents did things musically.

I took to bass because you dont hear very often of any good bass players.

Who are your inspirations or influences?

Ryan martinie (bass) - muvdvayne / soften the glare

Ramon ortiz (guitar) - ramon ortiz / puya

Mark michelle (bass) - scale the summit (the migration and V albums)

Animals as leaders



He is legend

What advice would offer aspiring performers?

Its hard to be a musician; any way you slice it. It is the same as running your own business, you need to buy gear and merch, you need to outreach to fellow musicians and acts, you have to sell yourself as a marketable product to venus/fans/labels. So just keep that in mind as you get into this. Keep your goals small and manageable at first as your grow and dont undersell yourself. If you want to make this a job then you need to put in the work.

So best things i could tell you having said that is:

- think about what you want to get out of this: whether its to tour the world or play local venus

-practice practice practice; people wont nitpick every little mistake you make but be sure to hone your craft and be confident that you can carry yourself (you are one of a kind, if its shreding at 400bpm or sticking to 4/4 easy listening; you are a amazing and dont let anyone tell you otherwise)

- and my most important tip is STAY HUMBLE

You may be a one of a kind but there are millions of fellow musicians trying to do what you do. The world doesn't need another better than you attitude.

How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?

I try to pour my heart into my playing; I dont want people to hear me and go he's alright but to feel something and really connect with it. But having said that; there is probably other people out there that feel the same way with their playing also.

Any new gigs or albums in the future

Always. I do two bands at the moment and i am constantly trying to find time to jam with fellow musicians, so as long as im not injured/sick or dead then i will be trying to do something musically. 

That's just part one stick around for part 2 coming soon Catch you on the flipside & stay awesome!
