I talked with Evan from The Superweaks and asked him 13 Questions. Here’s what his responses were.
First off, who are you and what genre of music do you make?
I am Evan, We are The Superweaks. I would consider us a rock band.
If you had to describe your music with a color, what would it be?
Probably Grey or Orange/Yellow, or Black.
What’s the biggest struggle you have when it comes to creating?
Finding the time to create! I feel like the inspiration is always there, but as you get older and wrapped up in more adult responsibilities you begin to allot more time towards work and relationships. When I get a second to sit down and reflect it sort of just happens. Clearly, I need to work on my time management.
If you could play any show in the world, what would it be?
BUDAPEST! OR TOKYO!
What do you consider your biggest musical success?
We are currently on tour of the EU and UK! That’s not something i ever thought i would get to do as a musician. It’s a truly amazing experience.
What inspired you to start making music?
Probably my fathers musical tastes. Music was a big part of his life and when i was very very young I wanted to be Eric Clapton.
If you could hear any person living or dead sing to you, who would it be?
Probably my brother. It’d be nice to hear his voice again.
Who, aside from any band or musician, is your biggest influence?
My parents, my sister and her husband Fred, my grandparents, my girlfriend, my room mates at big mama’s… My family. As I get older and the more I experience as an adult i gain a tremendous amount of reverence for what those people have accomplished with their time on earth. I hope to be as good as they are one day and inspire people like they inspire me.
What’s your favorite book?
Steppenwolf by Herman Hesse
What do you like to do other than music?
Make hot sauce, roast coffee, cook food, eat food and drink coffee. I also really love experiencing foreign supermarkets. I gauge a place by how sick their supermarket is.
Who is your favorite musical artist?There are so many that it’s hard to really pick one. Probably Peter Helmis. I’ve never been let down by anything he’s ever had a hand in making.
What’s one piece of advice you have for young musicians?
You are always the best at what you do.
Lastly, what’s your lucky number?
5, 8, 15, 29, 31, 47.
