1. First off, who are you and what genre of music do you make?
My name’s Michael and I play pop punk music in the band Coldfront.
2. If you had to describe your music with a color, what would it be?
Blue. Go leafs, go blue jays.
3. What’s the biggest struggle you have when it comes to creating?
Well I’m pretty much deaf but the boys do the hard parts and I just play drums to what they create haha.
4. If you could play any show in the world, what would it be?
It would be cool to play some of the shows on the European festival circuit one day. Reading/Leads or Download or something like that.
5. What do you consider your biggest musical success?
Making our first full length record. Thanks to the support from our label Equal Vision Records we were able to create something that I will cherish forever. It’s due out later this year.
6. What inspired you to start making music?
The 905 music scene. Growing up where we did, the music scene was incredible and seeing local bands play to hundreds of people every weekend lit the fire under me.
7. If you could hear any person living or dead sing to you, who would it be?
8. Who, aside from any band or musician, is your biggest influence?
My family. They’ve shown me how to be a good person and to me, that’s the most important thing in life.
9. What’s your favorite book?
I haven’t read a book in a long time. I’m not particularly proud of that but it’s the truth. The Outsiders was good but I think I ended up watching the movie before I finished the book.

I like to play hockey as often as I can. Mountain biking, cliff jumping and swimming are a few more things I enjoy.

12. What’s one piece of advice you have for young musicians?
Commit to it if you love it. It’s a cutthroat business and it will drive you insane. But it’s worth it and it will pay off if you keep at it and give it your all.
13. Lastly, what’s your lucky number?
Work hard enough and you won’t need luck!
