2.Your music has been described as Bluesy POP with a touch of Jimi Hendix ROCK –  would you agree with this?

Yes-Sam Getz (lead vocals/guitar)-That sounds right on actually!

We are huge fans of Hendrix and his musicality. We started as a blues/soul band in a way, but have always appreciated pop melodies and like to play songs that can be sung along to by anyone.

Brandon Flowers, American musician with his band member- The Killers

Gabriel Garzón-Montano

5. If you guys could work with any Singer/Producer or band in the industry currently who would it be and why?

SG-We have traditionally produced our music by ourselves in our Cleveland studio, and Jimmy(bass/vocals) has mixed all the records but one engineer producer we always talk about working with is Tchad Blake because he has mixed or produced so many of our favorite sounding records!

6. Pick two Celebrities to be your parents – Who?

SG-Steve Martin & Maya Rudolph

7. Rate yourself(s) on a scale of 1-10?

Mikey Gould (Drums) – John Cusack

10. If you could trade places with another person for a week- famous or non famous/living or dead / real or fictional who would it be?

MG-Alexander Calder (Artist) a personal favorite American Artist I like & love the way his mind works and would be interesting to see the world as he does.

11. Cleveland or London?

MG-Being born in the U.K. I’m inclined to say London but Cleveland has become home for me so I’ve gotta say Cleveland.

12. What gigs  /events do you have lined up this / next year?

MG-Right now we’re looking at doing some more touring in the states and planning on playing some major festivals next summer in the states and hopefully the U.K. As well!

13. what’s the most bizarre Youtube/Facebook/  Instagram /Twitter message  you have received from a fan so far?

MG-We had a bizzare comment on YouTube from a fan on our video for “Legendary”. He basically was trolling people telling them that legendary was about an alien abduction… that’s probably the strangest one.

14. Finally: before we go – tell us about the new single New single “Legendary” which is out now.

MG-We have been steadily working on an album to hopefully get out early next year. But we wanted to give the fans something in between the wait so we put together 2 other songs to go along with legendary as sort of an “appetizer ” before the record.


15. Where can we find you?

MG-Usually you can find one of us in the studio or a record store…but for the next 2 months you can find us on tour!
