Artist Interview: Altre di B
Tell us about yourself and your music

It’s not an easy process. We use as best as we can our social network and our live performances to brand the band. Live performances are the best way to show the best side of a band, it’s the most emotional way to tell our story.

Glass Animals, big beat music and french touch bands

I’m a journalist and a farmer in a wine company.
