Up-and-coming indie bands for interview

Recommended Posts

Okay... time for an update. I've sent out feelers to the publicists for: Okkervil River, The Whigs, Animal Collective, and Sara Bareilles. So far.

Still working on the list... :)

unfortunately not. Sometimes they're just too busy to do interviews, sometimes messages/e-mails get lost in the shuffle. But I never give up hope! If I don't get a reponse in a reasonable time period, I will follow up...

band of horses are great, I was going to write about them in "get the word out", sometimes a little too country though

I assume they have to be American? How about Devendra Banhart, he's been around for a few years though. Or the Gossip, maybe too big?

Shot down by Colbie Caillat's rep. At least she got back to me! :crazy:

Rachel - yes, Band of Horses is American. If I remember correctly, they're from North Carolina originally.

Thanks for the other suggestions! I'm adding them to the list... :) :)

I'm really enjoying THE BROKEN FAMILY BAND recently.

B-F, thank you for this! These guys are fabulous! I went in and listened to all the songs you posted (finally!) and sent them a request for interview. One of the links on their contact page is dead, so I sent my request to another, and hopefully will hear back soon. This would be a fun one. :)

BF, you'll be happy to know that Steve got back to me and says "Never turn down an interview, it saves money on therapy." :)

So we're arranging something for next week. I have to figure out time zones...

so you are 8 hours ahead of me... that gives me a good clue. At least I know I won't have to wake up at 1 a.m. to catch him by 11 a.m. or so. That's a relief. :grin: These artistic types always seem to want to talk to me around noon their time. :crazy:

Great news!!!

Do you need any help finding stuff to ask them about or do you usually manage that sort of thing on your own?

If you have any questions about their songs, I'm happy to take requests! :) It's typically well received when I tell an artist I've polled their fans and then ask questions directly from the fans.

But keep the questions about the songs... nothing personal. Sometimes personal stuff comes up, but that's not what this site is about...

Not yet! He sent me that e-mail, then I sent him a couple more to try and pin him down, and I never heard back. I'll give it another little while and then try again. I believe they were going into the studio to record another album...

*Bump*

he's not up-and-coming by any means, but how about trying to get an interview with Badly Drawn Boy (aka Damon Gough)?

I don't really expect this to lead anywhere, but on the other hand I read that he likes to tell stories at his concerts, so who knows :)

Sia Furler--"Breathe Me" and a few others have received recognition. She participates on her website (siamusic.net)

Also Stephanie's Id (as mentioned in a previous thread about the song "Cold Cold"). I'd guess hitting them up on their myspace: http://www.myspace.com/stephaniesid.
