Opposed 1 Bio:
Is there a story behind the name?
I played in a three piece band called All Those Opposed with some close friends, so it seemed like a natural progression from All Those to just One. It also speaks to my opposition of repition in music. I like freshness. New music, when its fresh and original - is like taking a deep breath after a long and tough day at work.
How do you approach writing your music?
My tunes are specifically designed to soothe you without putting you to sleep. I like to blend together what I love. I love classic rock, soul, motown, blues, funk, and progressive music. But then there's my metal side who loves slipknot and mudvayne...so its all about balancing the things I love about all of them into a collage of sexy. I especially enjoy electronica. So its always my main focus, before adding additional layers to a song.
As a do it yourself musician, how do you build a fan base?
Im trying to build an organic fan base of people who truly love my music. The new music industry change is a model I have been waiting to see for quite some time. This gives people with real talent, but limited means a chance to get their sound heard and embraced. Its opening up a whole new world of music that we all might never have had the fortune to hear. I personally HOPE EVERYONE pirates my music and sends it around the globe.
What bands truly influence you?
This is where I could randomly name all kinds of popular acts, but here are some you may not have had the chance to hear: Abandoned Pools, Porcupine Tree, Fresh Body Shop, Another Cynthia, Criteria, Spoon, Pinback, Massive Attack and the list goes on and on...
Anything else you want fans or potential fans to know?
If you're still reading this, then that means you're interested.You are the person I am trying to reach.
Please take a moment of your time to share my music with your friends. I sincerely thank you for your time and for your listens. I make this music in the hopes that it will inspire you to support other indie music. Cheers!
