Artist Interview: Kevin Bordine Band
Tell us about yourself and your music
We are a four piece Christian Rock (or is it Rock band who are Christians…either way…) and we have been together for about 5 years. We started out with me (Kevin) writing and recording the songs and then handing them to the rest of the band to learn for gigs. They were mostly Christian Rock mixed with Praise and Worship. About a year and a half ago our outlook changed (well, mine more so) and it was decided to be more band oriented instead of me as a solo artist with this backing band. We all love bands like the Foo Fighters and Nirvana, as well as more classic rock like KISS and Chicago, and a lot of groups in between. So we decided to let our influence flags fly and play what came out of our hearts and souls. It has been a fun and exciting journey so far.
Any plans to release a video?
We would love to, and are saving our pennies with the goal in mind to make a video. We feel there are ideas for all five songs on the EP. But we want to do it right and not half- way so we will take our time and do it right.
Any plans to hit the road?
So far there is nothing on the horizon but we are looking forward to our calendar filling up as this new year takes shape.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
I would have to say there aren’t a lot of bands saying they have a mix of indy/ alternative with modern rock tendencies combined with classic rock feel and honesty. And we can only write what we feel in our gut and know in our hearts which makes our voice unique to any other.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Well as always, the Foo Fighters; lately My Chemical Romance; Cheap Trick; Journey; Lincoln Brewster; Shinedown; Stone Temple Pilots; Jimmy Eat World;
Tell us about your passions
Family is huge to us…time we spend with family is cherished so that gets us excited and happy. Also movies, mostly of the Marvel and DC Comics movies but not exclusively. And for some of us, sports and wrestling (WWE) and interests as well.
What else is happening next in your world?
Writing and rehearsing for the next project as well as learning some great cover songs for gigs…just working our behinds off to be ready for whatever 2017 has in store for the Kevin Bordine Band!!!
Thanks for an awesome interview, Kevin!
