When they’re playing their originals, or while jamming their favorite songs,
Waking Life always bring their passion and skill out in abundance.
Soulful ballads, tight solos, high energy or soft emotional hits;
there seem to be no limits when they take the stage.
We do want to appeal to the crowd.
They don’t want to hear a bunch of stuff they haven’t heard before, they like hearing what they know.
I would prefer, that if we’re going to play songs that people know that we’re trying to find songs that not everybody’s already played.
So they’re like “oh, I haven’t heard this song in so long,
I love this!”
I want people to feel nostalgia when they hear our music,
whether it’s because they love Johnny Cash and June Carter
or it’s because we played some song from the 90’s like Elastica.
Every single song we pick, it’s a song that we like.
The love of all things music shines through in everything they play.
From rock to pop, country to blues, if they love the song they’ll make it theirs.
