TRR:  Hi Madison, welcome to Tru Rock Revival Magazine. 

 

ME:  Thanks!  Glad to be here.

 

TRR:  Tell me a bit about the band.  You’ve all been friends for a while and then put together the band in 2018?

ME:

 

TRR:  Who’s the one who took the lead to form the band?

ME:

 

TRR:  Before joining Saintvicious, what were you doing?

ME:

 

TRR:  So, after getting the band together, you guys did about a year and a half of live shows before recording your first album, which you did independently.  Were you doing covers or did you have original material at that point?

ME:

 

TRR:  Have any labels reached out to you guys yet?

ME:

 

TRR:  Where’s your biggest fan-base in Canada?

ME:

 

TRR:  The new single, Sticks and Stones.  You and Ryan co-wrote the song?

ME:

 

TRR:  “Hey, it’s ok, just obey, we’ll even tell you what to say.. Run away because it’s never enough.. Hey, it’s ok, just obey, we always need another slave.. No way! I’ll never carry your false flag

Those lyrics are pretty telling what’s going on in several societies these days, especially here in the US. Tell me what those lyrics mean to you.

ME: 

 

TRR:  “Don’t try to deny.. Inflate your ego with another lie.. Just look me in my eyes.. Find another hill for you to die.”

Who is that lyric for or about?

ME: 

 

TRR:  Pretty deep stuff.

ME:

 

TRR:  How did you guys go about the writing?  Words or music first?

ME:

 

TRR:  Great song by the way.   Has anyone told you you sound a bit like Chad Kroeger from Nickelback, a fellow Canadian.  Now, before you get all bent, because for some reason, Nickelback gets a bad rap, and I’ve never met or interviewed them but some of the artists we’ve interviewed (Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Ben Burnley), love those guys, say their very cool.   So, has anyone told you that you sound a bit like Chad?

ME:

 

TRR:  Now that I’ve probably destroyed you by making a comparison to Chad Kroeger, who are some of the artists or bands you look up to or looked up to when you were just starting out?

ME:

 

TRR:  Listening to your songs from the first album and to the new single, you guys seem to have stuck to your signature sound.  Has anyone in the band wanted to try something different as far as production or sound?

ME:

 

TRR:   How have you guys kept busy during the pandemic?  Do you have day jobs away from the band?

ME:

 

TRR:  What about family?  Married?  Kids?

ME:

 

TRR:  When do you think you guys will make it to the states to do some shows?

ME:

 

TRR:  If you make it to South Florida, we’ll make sure to get out there and support you guys.

ME:

 

TRR:  Madison, this has been very cool.  We’ll keep in contact and we’ll be featuring you guys in Tru Rock in February.

ME: 

 

TRR:  Anyone you’d like to thank or give a shout out to?

ME:
