09|01|08   Interview with Stephanie Cairns for Salient Magazine

Stephanie, a writer for Salient, made it out to our Brown Note show in Wellington last week, and interviewed Thomas (i.ryoko) and myself about our music and our solo electronic tour of the north island:

Salient: What are your top local bands/artists? Is there anyone out there who isn’t getting the attention they deserve?

Me: Anyone who puts their heart and soul into their music and has the courage to release and perform it is, in my opinion, deserving of a certain amount of respect. As far as who’s getting attention and who isn’t, what does any of it matter in the long run? Those who are serious and passionate about their art will continue unabated on their journey, be it with or without the support of the masses, industries, or specific scenes. If you have heart, conviction, and never give up pursuing what you love, then, I believe, you have a chance at building a life worth living. Of what value is attention then, when compared to the love of existence?

Yay! Check out the new Enright House Shop I just finished making! Even if you’re not the type of person who buys music anymore, do take a look at how pretty and shiny it is! :)
