DJ Interviews: Owen N of Point Of Promise

 Here's my interview with Owen N.  of Point of Promise

How'd you get started in music?

Our start in music began probably in the mid to late nineties, music runs in our family so over time we eventually picked it up
and started playing whatever music we were into at the time.

Who are your inspirations or influences?

Our families influenced us as it was natural to get into music. As far as bands and people go it's safe to say when it comes to playing guitar that Zakk Wylde and Randy Rhoads are the two at the top for us, then you have Dimebag Darrell, Hammet and Hetfield, David Gilmore, too many other great guitarists to name really. As for bands; Ozzy, AC/DC, Metallica, Pink Floyd, Creed, Finger Eleven, Green Day, The Offspring, The Tea Party, Breaking Banjamin, Fear Factory, Staind, Amon Amarth, Five Finger Death Punch, Tool, Trivium, Don Williams, Collective Soul, and that's just to name some. There are so many more that we are definitely forgetting to mention. We grew up listening to grunge, hard rock, alternative, and metal so bands to name as influences there's just too many, and you can even throw a bit of classical, folk, Irish, and pop music in there as well for that matter. No genre was really off limits for us, again, it's about the melody.

What advice would you offer aspiring performers?

There's a great Joseph Campbell phrase "follow your bliss". Follow your heart, your passion, and the opportunities will come.

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

That's hard to answer. For us we want to be as melodic, clean sounding, and heavy as possible while still being pleasing to as many listeners as we can. We do like to write some soft and light music as our influences are not linked to one genre so while our music is heavy, we try to have as much melody as we can. Much of the writing is not done using music theory, it's basically what sounds and feels right.

Any new gigs or albums in the future?

Right now, we don't have anything planned . We began releasing our first album in 2022 and the last song off that album debuted in December so right now our goal is to simply work on promoting the music we have released online and reach as many people as we can. The reward for us is just having as many people listen to and enjoy our music as much as possible.
