In this week’s music news, ‘Black Hills Soul’ is crushing the rock charts with its debut album ‘Where It All Begins’. We caught up with Scott (guitar) and Bill (drums) for some early questions.
Guys, welcome to Muzique magazine. How did you find the name of your band?
Scott: Todd found the name. It really fits. We are all Black Hills boys and want to share our soul with the world.
When did you discover your love for your profession and what made you realize that you wanted to make a career out of it?
Scott: When I was about 5, I told my mom that there was a radio in my head that wouldn’t turn off. I have always heard music. I was fascinated by jingles. I’d do my own, thinking I could make a living out of it. No one but my mother liked them, and I became a jingle writer when I was 7 years old. Making money with something you love is Heaven on earth, right? … but with taxes.
Bill: When I was a child, the love of music was encouraged by my parents. I started playing at school and I can’t stop. Choosing a career in music meant learning many other skills to keep it all going.
What’s it like to be a Billboard band? It must have taken a long time to get here.
Scott: Well, “About time! ! »
Bill: I feel good, and yes almost a lifetime.
What or who do you all attribute your sense of music to?
Scott: Well definitely not my family. None of them could play and my father didn’t like my music. My mum, however, she always listened uncritically…apart from the loudness…so I owe everything to mom. Thanks Mom!
Invoice: Mom, and there are others, but start there.
Tell us about your album, how did you find the concept?
Scott: The title track “Where it all starts” says it all. The concept was to write songs and record. For this band, it starts here. Although the song itself is kind of a semi-fictional story about my wife’s gaming adventures in Deadwood. “Honey, you really can’t count cards.”
Bill: James had the idea and the desire to start everything. The disc itself really fell into place, I think.
What are your plans for the near future?
Scott: When we started, there was no talk of playing live. Halfway through the project, we realized we had some really great songs…and now we’re doing some showcases. The response was awesome. Live music is not dead! Take this Covid!!! We have lots of new music and are looking forward to the next album.
What suggestions do you have for other bands like you?
Scott: Practice, practice, practice. Believe in yourself and… Practice, practice, practice.
Bill: Do it. Believe in what you are doing. Attitude can mean a lot.
