6 Questions With Noiseheads6 Questions With Noiseheads

Welcome to “6 Questions With…,” a series of interviews with emerging artists, musicians, and bands focusing on the music scene and how they live within it. It started as a quick, fun project, but has quickly gained serious interest, so it has become a permanent fixture here on Indie Minded. Over time, the questions may change, but the sentiment will stay the same. This is a way for independent artists to be discovered by new fans on a global scale.

Within in each post, you will find all of their social media links, and also either a link to their music, or the ability to stream at least one of their tracks or videos, depending on the availability.

We hope you enjoy this series, and if you know anyone that might be interested in being part of it, please have them reach out to us for more information.

Next in the hot seat is Florida-based indie alt-rock band Noiseheads. We have not yet had the privilege of featuring Noiseheads here on the pages of Indie Minded, so we are thrilled to bring you this short interview. Sit back and enjoy! This is what is great about this series – the discovery of new music.

For those who may not be familiar, please tell us about your music: the type of music you play, where you are from, and how you got started?

Most people refer to us as a rock band but I like to think we’re the next C+C Music Factory.

We’re from Florida and we started because the governor called me one day back in 2010 to demand we start a band called Noiseheads. I thought it was a stupid name, but how could I say no to the governor of our state? It was a very surreal and exciting time.

Okay, maybe that didn’t happen.

As an artist, how do you define success?

Success to me would be getting to do exactly what I want to do when I want to do it, and I don’t think that’s something you ever achieve. Happiness is found through attempts at that, and I think that’s what we all have to settle for – being happy should be the goal, not success.

What do you find to be your greatest struggle when it comes to the music business.

Social media. It’s so dumb. Can you imagine Kurt Cobain on Twitter today? He would think it’s the dumbest thing ever, and you can bet your ass he wouldn’t waste his money boosting posts on Facebook.

The actual music in the music business has become less and less important over the last 20-25 years, thanks to MY generation for illegally downloading it to death (just kidding, sorta.) But I question how healthy it is for a musician to have to become obsessed with their social stats on a 24/7 basis, because it’s exhausting to me.

If you could only play ONE of your songs for the rest of your career, which one would it be?

If I could actually have a career, I wouldn’t care what song it was.

Who do you consider your greatest influences?

Beatles. Soundgarden. Michael Jackson. My uncle.

Outside of music, what do you like to do that you feel contributes to the creativity that you tap into for your music?

I’m not sure. Eat bagels?
