Interviews: The Uneven

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Hard Rock/Stoner Rock/Alternative Rock band The Uneven from the USA. Check out this band and follow them on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

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

Coming up with a band name that is not taken is almost impossible. We knew we wanted a name that represented imperfection. Rock n Roll is not perfect. It's raw and reckless. Every decent name we settled on was always taken. My wife and I were watching some drama one night on TV. An actor in the show said, "that's an uneven situation." My wife looked at me and said, "call the band The Uneven!" We cleared the name online and it stuck.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We all love rock n roll, punk, and metal. We are kids of the 90s, rock is a part of our DNA. This aesthetic of rock fits our vibe and what we are trying to emote.

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

Yes. Michael Meadows (bassist) was a past friend and we played in a different band together. Simona Bressi (drums) I met through a Nashville Facebook gig finder group. Ironically, she and I attended the Musicians Institute (Los Angeles) in the late 90s, but we never knew each other. Justin Tyler Smith (bassist) and I played in a prog rock/jam band in the 2010s, and Chris Poticik (drums) was a drummer for the band Backup Planet. I produced a few songs for those guys around 2014. Robert Allen Parker (guitar) is my second cousin and a working musician in Memphis, TN.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

I can't really answer this question and I sure can't speak for other band members. But, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Creedence Clearwater, and Cream were my introduction to rock n roll at age 7 or so.

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Life experiences, people, and relationships. In order to create any art, you have to get out and live.

6. Where was your last gig?

The Basement - Nashville, TN

7. Where would you like to act?

I am assuming you mean, play a show? If so, The Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA is pretty magical. Saw lots of shows there.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

I am assuming you mean open for? We would love to open for Swedish rock bands "Graveyard" or "Greenleaf"

9. Have any of you ever suffered from stage fright? Any tips for beginners on how to beat that?

Yes, You have to realize that you are there to create community and connect with people. You are not there to be perfect. No one really cares if you make a mistake and 9 out of 10 times, no one ever hears it. Besides, rock n roll is not about being perfect. Stage fright is a phobia. The best way to overcome it in general is to be overly prepared and accept that you will make mistakes.

10. What bands have inspired you the most?

So many different ones for different reasons. Jimmy Page of Zeppelin was the first guitar player who set me on fire. I was maybe 10 when I saw him play at the Knebworth Festival on TV. I knew right then I wanted to play guitar. Eric Clapton's tone and phrasing have always astounded me. Alice in Chains and Metallica are some of my earliest memories of heavier rock. Some of my favorite vocalists would be John Fogerty, Paul Rodgers, Ian Gillan, Chris Cornell, Wilson Pickett, and Van Morrison.

11. What do you think of your fans?

Our fans are incredible. They are true advocates for us and we could not do this without them.
