Today, we sat down with The Rift to talk type of music they grew up listening to, writing music and much more! Be sure to check out The Rift music below on Spotify after the interview!
What is your inspiration to write your music? Is it your surroundings?
Our inspiration comes from the screaming forces of rock in the universe that destroy noobs like Machine gun Kelly. No I kid, do I? No… Music is very therapeutic and it started as an outlet for me as a kid going through some things but anything real and impactful can give us inspiration to make a killer song. That’s always what we try to do make the best dam song we can.
What type of music did you listen to growing up?
I grew up in a classic rock household my folks were big Police, Boston, Eagles,
And Queen fans so I was raised on that music along with classical and flamenco
too. That first Boston album still blows my mind and really as a kid the guitar harmonies in it had me hooked. The first records I remember getting on my own were Nirvana Nevermind and Ride the Lightning from Metallica.
Is there someone you looked up as a hero?
So many Kobe, Eddie Van Halen, Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Joan Jett, Alice Cooper, Nita Strauss
To name a few also Spinal Tap, those guys just crack me up
If you weren’t a musician, would you be doing today?
I think I’d honestly be dead if it weren’t for music, or posing for selifes with my
Dog on Only fans lol living in a van down by the river
What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create music?
Dive into it and play around, there are no rules just be yourself.
