- An Interview with Woodfish Jammerzine Exclusive 54:54
Last week we did the exclusive premiere of ‘Damn Thang’, the hyper-explosive new video by Woodfish, slickly produced by Helloyoung Films. This is a band that must be heard to be appreciated. Woodfish is the very definition of a power trio. Tight in form, original in composition, and creative in execution, Woodfish is a prime example of the sheer talent that is available in the modern #indie scene. As I state at the beginning of this interview, Woodfish is one of the most talented artists we’ve met this last year. Also, Steve Kalorin has to be one of the two best bassists I have interviewed in the last year, the other being Billy Sheehan.
Matched together with two other mega-talents in the form of Dominic Kalorin (Drums) and Chris Macock (Guitar), the mega trio from the Garden State stretch their wings to ride the global skies with other future music legends and do it in the only way a team of true talent can: on their own terms. The interview above turned into a conversation between musicians who are just as good of fans as they are those with fans. This is a lesson in originality.
Woodfish is one of today’s best U.S. based rock bands. The band’s appeal is universal. Their music is energetic; groove oriented and places heavy emphasis on the bass. The drive behind the creation and performance of Woodfish’s music is to stick to the roots of what makes great rock music while still creating a great new “Woodfish” sound that keeps people moving while touching their hearts and souls. The music of Woodfish can be described as a combination of rock, funk, surf, jam band and progressive styles which, infused together, provide audiences with an intoxicating and entertaining musical “Woodfish” experience.
Woodfish is the continual result of a musical adventure/journey which was started when two rhythm section oriented brothers decided they wanted to start a rock band. Woodfish formed progressively as brothers, Steve Kalorin (bass/vocals) and Dominic Kalorin (drums) hit local open mic jam nights on the Jersey Shore. As time passed, the brothers joined up with other musicians and began to identify a cohesive, consistent sound in their jams. Inspired by friends, songwriters and other musicians they met along the way they then decided to combine the free elements of their jamming with traditional and innovative songwriting arrangement styles. The resulting sound is now the very rhythmic, energetic and intoxicating sound you will find here on their website. Over the years, the full line up of the band members changed as things do with many rock bands but the Woodfish sound has and always will always remain constant.
