1. First off, who are you and what genre of music do you make?
We are Dayseeker. We make passionate music and attempt to offer comfort and solace to anyone who takes the time to listen.
2. If you had to describe your music with a color, what would it be?
I would use Red to describe us, it exudes passion, warmth, and intensity.
3. What’s the biggest struggle you have when it comes to creating?
The biggest struggle is us challenging ourselves to put out new music that is progressive and sounds different than anything we’ve created before. We are definitely a group of people who want to have a noticeable evolution from album to album.
4. If you could play any show in the world, what would it be?
Impericon Festival is a big goal for me personally. But we’re honored to play anywhere we can.
5. What do you consider your biggest musical success?
I think our biggest success is just the fact that we’re blessed enough to be able to travel the country doing what we love to do. And knowing that this next album will be the next stepping stone into a much better place for our musical careers.
6. What inspired you to start making music?
I think the power of music being able to comfort us and help us sort our issues growing up is a big part of why we do what we do. It’s an honor being able to meet so many people across the country who can relate to something really difficult we’ve been through and it helps us and them feel comfort in knowing we’re not alone in the struggles we face.
7. If you could hear any person living or dead sing to you, who would it be?
I would go with Freddie Mercury, one of the greatest singers of our time taken too soon.
8. Who, aside from any band or musician, is your biggest influence?
I think my parents, whether it was for better or worse, have helped shape me into who I am and are a big driving force behind my pursuit in music.
9. What’s your favorite book?
Currently, that would be ‘The Coma’ by Alex Garland, since it helped inspire me for certain parts of this concept album.
10. What do you like to do other than music?
Writing, in general, is just a big passion for me. Poetry is something I’ve been doing since I was 10 and I’m so grateful I’ve been able to translate it into music as I’ve gotten older.
11. Who is your favorite musical artist?
I would have to say it’s Thrice. I have a huge respect for their music and the way they’ve evolved as time has gone by.
12. What’s one piece of advice you have for young musicians?
Just to keep trying for as long as you can. All your favorite bands and musicians you look up to all started exactly where you are right now and if you push yourself, you could be a huge inspiration for many, many others.
13. Lastly, what’s your lucky number?
My lucky number is 6. It’s always 6.
