Fevers: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Inspiration: Station | Passion: Pit | Strength: In depth

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

Just a small spec on this planet – nothing more, nothing less. I think I interpreted it literally.

Why do you do what you do?

I love to be creative – graphically, musically, making music videos. Also love getting involved with the media side of things – chatting with journalists, radio people, publicists etc.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I don’t think I ever had a fondness for numbers or things with a finite answer. I prefer things to be subjective. A lot of trial and error.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Moving to Canada was tough – leaving family, friends behind. My girlfriend helped! And the fact most Canadians are very friendly helped me settle in quickly.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Music and musicians in general inspires me – it changes my mood constantly. It’s a tough life doing music full time so I tip my hat to anyone who does it. I’m not sure if I’ve inspired anyone – not yet, any way.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Ha – too many mistakes to mention. But learnt from them all – they are invaluable. If you never make mistakes, how will you ever know you were right?

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Just working on FEVERS stuff – new music, shows. Also working with Sarah Bradley (FEVERS) on her solo material.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

I don’t think I have life figured out yet, or ever will – so I don’t think I’m in a position to give advice. But if pushed I’d say always give everything – if you’re not, what’s the point?

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Thanks for the interview – it was fun, and interesting! Keep an eye out for more tour dates and new music.
