The music kicks in, and immediately I start to feel it.  Then I hear, Don’t Make Me Follow the Hollow.”  It’s a Feeling I can’t Hide.  Just look at your surroundings. It seems that if one person jumps, they all jump.  This is without even looking down!  Don’t, “Follow the Hollow,” and don’t become a part of a programmed population.  However, I encourage you to follow, Message to Venus, and check out what they had to say during our interview.

When did you start your band?
I started playing in a band when I was 16, called, Tribu 8.”

Which instruments do you play?
I play guitar, and I also sing.

Describe your music interests and abilities.
I’ve always had a thing for crisp, clean, yet heavy distortion.  Delay affects are my ear candy. I also enjoy the organic sound of wood instruments, like an acoustic guitar.

What famous musicians inspire you?
Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, and Chris Cornell

What are some of your best musical memories?
I remember my first paying gig was with a band I had, while at a funeral.  It was at a beach bar gig for my dad’s surfer friend who had just passed away.  It was a big party celebration.

What public events do you have coming up
We are currently in the process of releasing our new album called, Victims & Villains.”  We are now working with booking for gigs, “TBA.”

What would you say to beginners in the industry, who are nervous?
Smoke pot, keep studying, finish college, and have a backup plan because this is not easy.  And if you’re still nervous just pretend everyone is naked, and you’re the only one with clothes on.

How do you balance your music with your family and friends?
This is not an easy task.  I have had many problems with this subject, specifically with girlfriend issues.  Some people just don’t understand how important this is for a musician.  You need to have people support you.  You can’t always be a dreamer.  Maintain a reality, but don’t give up.
