Interviews: Sean Nolan And The Heartmakers


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Pop Punk/Punk Rock band Sean Nolan And The Heartmakers from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or it came out just like that?

Tom Petty is a big influence for us. Heartmakers is a play on Heartbreakers.

2. Why did you want to play pop punk instead of another genre?

Pop punk Has been a big influence on me since I was kid but, in all honesty, we’re inspired and influenced by many different genres. We’re constantly looking and excited to expand our sound.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

We’ve all known each other for years before I decided to put the band together. My brother is in the band and my sister sings with us sometimes. So yeah, we’re all very close.

4. Each band member’s favorite band?

While I can’t speak for everyone, I can say with some confidence we’re all listening to new music all the time. It’s difficult to pick just one band. That being said, personally, my favorite band is Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.

5. Who or what inspires you to write your songs?

My favorite songwriters and fiction writers inspire to tell stories through songwriting. People like Ray Bradbury, Neil Young, and John Irving constantly inspire me to create.

6. What bands have inspired you the most?

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, The Clash, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Rancid, American Football, Mewithoutyou

7. How have your fans reacted to your new single “Or, the Whale”?

So far feedback has been great for the new single! We’re excited to share the rest of the record.

8. What’s the story behind this song?

It’s a song I wrote inspired by the themes present in Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick. Whatever we pursue, whether it be a relationship, a career, starting a band, it can be deeply frustrating. Sometimes, we blame ourselves for the failures that come along the way or we look for reasons as to why something didn’t work out. But ultimately, it’s the journey that matters most, the pursuit. It’s also important to try and find what motivates us. If we’re constantly striving, unhappy with where we are because we haven’t arrived, we’ll never catch that white whale.

9. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you?

Nothing weird comes to mind, fingers crossed!
