Hey guys, I'm Luke/Kas, Bassist for a Wirral based band called Hellbourne UK. I am a merchandise designer, I build apps and also run a small online TV channel called Blast Music TV. I have been playing drums since I was 6 years old so 21 years of experience. I am relatively new with bass (around 4/5 years) Been in quite a few bands and currently one named above.
Music to me gives me more freedom than the Freedom of speech, my escape from the world, my drug. Without music, I could never see the world being connected fully.
My dream in music, is to one day open my own record label. see my band well known and gigging.
Less bombs and guns, more pits!
too many to count :') but the first song I heard back in the day was Meatloaf, paradise by the dashboard light
I have quite few, Alesana, Pantera, Megadeth, Motorhead, BFMV, three days grace, breaking benjamin, the list goes on :P
my inspirations to make music is that music is a more understanding voice to let your emotions out, Feel sad? grab a guitar. feel angry? Blast beat the drums. Feel happy? get the lyrics written down :)
My messages behind my music can be related to anything, Hellbournes song - Heretic, aims to open our eyes to the corruptive governments. another song by us, Darkness, is like a window into a mind of someone suffering from Anxiety.
Like there couldn't be any place better, the venue is my church, the stage is my alter :P
Musician's realities can differ. Some of us play for fun, some of us want to share our skills, some just love the adrenaline of playing live, what i would improve, is that we need more local band supports. more venues
Drooble is a Family! One Big, family, full of musicians, full of the fans! There's no where else a musician should be :P
lack of space to put my drum kit! :')
I get around my local scene as much as I can, help get names out, help design merchandise, get their music videos on my channel. I'm just happy to help as much as I possibly can :D
The qualities most artists should have now, in order to be heard by a larger audience, is the belief in themselves. without that self confidence, without that self belief, how will any of us get anywhere we want to be?
Depends on what kind of bands you're talking about? I'd name Insanity beach from the Wirral, hope that helps :P
