BROKEN QUOTE

10171211_10152136510833981_5366756028347049271_n

David Schrier, professionally known as Broken Quote, knows a lot about triumphing over hardship; hailing from Houston, Texas, the multi-instrumentalist and producer has had a penchant for creating music ever since he was a child. At a early age, Schrier wrote song lyrics in his head, connecting them to the contours and textures his active mind would present, well before ever learning any theory, scales, or even touching an instrument. Of this extremely influential time he says: “Music opened up a part of me I didn’t even know was there. It taught me lessons, comforted me, scared me, challenged me and brought focus to my life, helping me grow as a person. Writing music is how I process my experience.” Enjoy our interview with Broken Quote below.

KICKLIGHTER

10407574_726278057436040_6363319676316198635_n

Kicklighter is the musical project of Everett Young, a 45 year-old musician from Tallahassee, FL. Young plays piano and all the guitars on his latest release “The Fascinating Thinking Machine”. Young has played the piano his entire life but only recently took up the guitar; he has since begun teaching lessons on each instrument to students locally and online via Skype. Young’s story is one that speaks volumes to the themes of persistence, dedication, and determination. Before we move on to the interview, I’d love to share what Young wrote to me yesterday: “Hi Tom, thanks for doing this interview with me. I love that you are an active participant in helping independent musicians find their fans, and their fans find them. It’s a vital role in the new international music scene that you’re playing. As you know, I’ve checked out your music and it’s really, really good. Anyone who’s reading this interview and hasn’t checked out Tom’s band, should do so forthwith. They are ultra-high-energy but combine their high-energy loud rocking with a melodic sense that’s well above the sophistication level I’ve come to expect from modern rock bands. This is the kind of work I wish more rock bands were doing, so thank your for your commitment to that too. You’re making the world a better place in more ways than one.” How’s that for encouragement? Enjoy our extensive interview with Young below!
