Today, we sat down with Morgan Harris from Red Maker to talk their inspiration to write music, heroes and much more! Be sure to check out the music of Red Maker below after the interview on Spotify!
What is your inspiration to write your music? Is it your
100% our surroundings. Our music is all about experiencing life and everything it has to offer and throws your way. We have songs that came from when we were hurting, or mad or hopeful or in love and all of that. Like the song “B!tch” was written about an absolute dickweed at my job I work at. I work at a factory so it’s bound to happen that you have to deal with some jerk but this guy was a shocking amounts of asshole. I just had to write the song just to blow off some steam and based on its 23,000 streams it’s wracked up lots of people have had to deal with the same thing. By the way Eric if you’re reading this, fuck you!
What type of music did you listen to growing up?
I liked all kinds of music though there was a stretch in my life where I only consumed the most angry music I could find. I loved death metal and hardcore, rap music that talked about how pissed they are. Now I write all of these songs about loving people while covered in flowers.
Is there someone you looked up as a hero?
Dax Riggs without a doubt. He was the whole reason why I wanted to sing for a death metal band. But then when he started Deadboy and the Elephantman, I wanted to go indie just like him.
If you weren’t a musician, would you be doing today?
Probably spend the rest of my life rotting away in a factory. Not good at anything else besides this.
What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create
Start right where you’re at, with what you have, right now. Those old punk bands would use any shitty gear and any trashed up van they can find and just went and did it. That’s the best thing you can do. Even if you suck the more you do it the faster you can close the gap of sucking to being half decent. I guess to sum it all up, it’s no hesitation, just doing.
