Interview with Surviving September

Today, we sat down with Surviving September to talk about the type of music they grew up listening to, advice for musicians and much more! Be sure to check out their music below after the interview on Spotify!


What is your inspiration to write your music? Is it your

Song writing comes from so many different places. Actual Physical location is a small part of that. For us, it really happens a few different ways. Songs mostly come from Steve, we come in and learn the bones from him, and then write our parts. Other times we’ll just be jamming on something cool, finding parts that go with it, and Steve will put lyrics to it.

What type of music did you listen to growing up?

Everything. Rock, Rap, Metal, Neil Diamond. You can take something away from just about every style of music there is.

Is there someone you looked up as a hero?
I’m not sure about actual heroes as far as the band is concerned, but you can look up to some of the greats out there. Queen is a band that will stand the test of time. You can look at the pioneers of the grunge movement, more specifically, Sound Garden and Chris Cornell. He had a way of processing his pain and depression and putting it out there for people to hear. I think a lot of people, us included, that it really connected them to his music.

If you weren’t a musician, would you be doing today?

We’d probably all be slinging Lumpia or working as accountants or something boring like that.

What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create

Do it. Just get a guitar and do it. Even if you never amount to anything doing it. Do it. It’s fun. You meet some cool people, travel to different places, ect.
