The Most Important Thing I’ve Learned: Identify What You’re Thinking & Feeling In The Moment

Building a career in the music industry is difficult. Being in a working band is difficult. Writing and crafting sincere, yet marketable songs is difficult. All of this would be IMPOSSIBLE if you don’t have a highly developed sense of how to clearly communicate with all parties involved. It took awhile to figure it out, but I’ve learned that listening more and speaking directly and articulately, will move you forward faster by avoiding problems before they happen. Before we get too far here, I am no expert. I’m still learning,…

Get It Together

“My drummer forgot his snare, can he use yours”? Seriously, this happens. A lot. And I don’t mean to take a dig at drummers here with this. You can interchange any member and any piece of equipment in that statement and it would be just as relevant. I’ve been touring for the better part of the last decade, and in that time I won’t say that I’ve seen it all. But I’ve seen my damn fair share. At the end of the day it boils down to how you approach…

MY FIRST TIME: Lilac Lungs

Hi! We are Lilac Lungs and we’re going to talk a little bit about our first time writing, recording, and then releasing a full length album.

The first time I heard about Household was from one of Blood & Ink’s former bands, Comrades. Joe, the guitarist/vocalist, told me they were young, but brought something really special to the table. After a few emails with Household, I took a trip up to northern Virginia to see them open a show for Comrades in someone’s garage. There…
