Is the production side of things something you’d like to get involved more in the future, maybe working with other artists?
Yes, I produce track for the other artists too.

Do you find the process of recording enjoyable and does it get easier the more you do?
I like the process of recording new things is studio. I like to produce track.

Do you try to capture your ‘live’ sound on recordings or do you think that the ‘live’ sound and recorded sound should be different experiences for your fans?
I think there must be difference. Not so much but it must be.

I like Deborah but also Rain….my favourite track is always that track which I am actually working on.

Who are the main songwriters for the band?
Slavomir Bachraty

Do you have a method for writing songs? (lyrics first, music first, etc)
No. It is always unique and individual moment. Sometime I play piano or guitar and melody comes…sometime I sit in the bar and write new lyrics…and the song comes out.

Do you write songs only about personal experiences?
No. Sometimes I like to write fictions – Right out of the sky or Fear. Of course I write about situations happened in my life or in the life of persons close to me.

Do you find song writing easy or difficult?
If you have something to say…it is no problem…

Who are your favourite songwriters?
Nick Cave. Per Gessle.

Which countries have you gigged in?
Unfortunately, we just traveled across Slovak Republic – the place where is our band based and her clubs and festivals. Of course we want to go to UK for tour in clubs…
We do not see any problem to go for a tour with any other band

Which countries would be at the top of your list to tour?
UK, Germany.

How do you promote your music and get your music out to new fans?
Many webpages focused on independent and unsigned artists. We tried to work with promotion companies but it did not bring any big success. We would like to play live performance in UK’s clubs and we try to find somebody who could help us with this.

Do you use any websites like ‘Reverbnation’ or ‘Soundclick’?
Just reverbnation.

How do you relax?
I play the guitar, practice kung fu.

Do you get nervous before a gig? How do you calm down?
Sometimes I am nervous, but after few seconds when I sing it all disappears.
I do not try to calm down because I know that it goes down very soon. Anyway, I do not use to be to much nervous.
