Hey guys DJ Dizzy here, & here's my interview with a band from Sweeden who're called Empress enjoy!
How'd you get started in music?
The band Empresses was first started by Emma,Catha & Ida back in 2018 with two other members. They won a bandcompetition same year and a new beginning was started. Unfortually 2 members dropped the band for start a journey with other bands.Putte and Emma knew eachother since before so in 2019 Putte took place as Lead Guitar and a new bassplayer joined the band to. The bassplayer had to quit due to personal issue's but Putte got a mail from Adam who he knew in earlier days that he wanted to be the bassplayer for us and finally Empresses is complete. Putte(Patrik) is the songwriter in the band and we formed our uniq sound together with an id of strong women dominating of the band. Our storys lies way back when Emperors and Empresses ruled the world and the struggle you feel when you have pressure as an heir to the throne.
Who are your inspirations or influences?
In music our influences are Thundermother, Dorothy, Halestorm,Guns N Roses, Killing Joke, Within Temptation. Inspiration to the lyrics we take from everything we experience and reads about in the world and forms it like it was 2000 years ago
What advice would offer aspiring performers?
Never give up,never surrender. believe in what you can but also see your limits.You dont always have to be the best guitarist to play the guitar in the best way.
How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?
Empresses is uniq with a female-dominated band. A more melodic rockband with strong female voices with a nice golden stage-outfit like Empresses should wear if they were rockstars
