Q2: How did you get started with your music? And if you weren’t an artist/musician what would you want to be doing?

Q3: What or who keeps you motivated and inspires you?

Q5: Would you go back and change anything in your journey so far? (If no, why)
A5: I think we’re on the right journey, to be honest with you. Passing from a three piece to a two piece was a big decision and also a forced decision. We kept going, we argued, we struggled but here we are with great songs and a great live performance. I think we’ll be looking again to expand the team in the near future … we’ll see.

A6: Getting signed to a record label and toured EU twice as a supporting act for a bigger and more experienced band. And a lot of new music, obviously.
Q7: How much of your life and background have influenced you to become a songwriter/musician?
A7: My first memory about music is the song yellow submarine by the Beatles. My dad was driving around the hill and that song came out of nowhere from an Italian radio station he used to listen. Then Oasis came along, then bands like NOFX, The Ramones, Bad Religion etc. I remember I wanted to start a band and at the age of 16 my dad bought me my first drum-kit… it was one of the best days in my life! We started a band one week later called Road Rash and I’ve been in punk and rock bands since then (Filippo).
Q8: What lyrics mean the most to you and why (ones you have written and or ones you didn’t write)
