SOUND OFF: Interview with CAMU

Sound OFF! It’s your turn to tell the world!

Band: CAMU
New Single: “Empire State of Sound” Official music video below!

Soundwave Brigade: The greatest challenge to date you have met and conquered was?

Whenever I have relocated – whether it’s been to NYC, LA or Hawaii – I always come with a good amount of things to sort out. Starting my own business wasn’t easy, but the most challenging and at the same time the most rewarding is being a parent haha. Toddlers are savage.

SB: Prior to an evening’s performance do you or the band members have a ritual or exercise or something unique they do before hitting the stage?

I used to have a bunch of crazy rituals and warm ups. I don’t do them anymore. I enjoy the moment and feed off of the energy. We do have our own legendary handshake thing that we do while we scream out a very peculiar name before we go on though.

SB: The biggest thrill when playing live is?

Being able to play out your childhood fantasy for the duration of the show is awesome as a whole. Honestly, I think it’s great to be able to play with the guys in the band. Creating epic energy with the crowd is the thrill.

SB: When performing live do you have an opening song by another band they like to have played just prior to going on stage? If so, what song is it?

No, we do however use a song called “Jokers laugh” from the original Batman soundtrack from the 60’s as our intro and have been for 15 years.

SB: What are some of your favorite fast food places to eat when on the road?

I’ll eat anything, but I’m gonna go with a burger and fries.

SB: When you want to buy music how do you buy it? Download, CD, Vinyl?

I use Apple Music & Spotify.

SB: When performing in a several band line-up, do you have a particular place in the line-up of 1,2,3, last that you as a band or an artist like to perform?

Always strive to headline, being underground is easy.

SB: If you each could say a few positive words about what you do as an artist and performer what would you say?

Staying authentic to who I am, haha. I personally love melodies and good catchy rock music with cunning lyrics – that’s what I aim to do.
