Sound Off: Interview with STEW

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

Band: STEW:
New Single: “Hot” – Check out STEW’s song down below!

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

NJ: We go backstage and try to have a little moment of peace; maybe drink one or two beers before we hit the stage.

SB: The biggest thrill when playing on stage is?

NJ: The instant feedback you hopefully get from the audience when playing live is one of the biggest thrills!

SB: Does the band have an opening song by another band they like to have played just prior to going on stage? If so, what song is it?

NJ: No, we don’t.

SB: What are the bands favorite fast food eatery when on the road?

NJ: Pancakes with a glass of milk, haha.

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

MÅ: I buy a lot of both CDs and vinyl. I’ve got a company-car in which I often play CDs. The whole coupe is full of old rock albums, haha.

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 like to perform?

MÅ: Beck, Bogert and Appice!

SB: If you each could say a few positive words about each other in the band- what words would you choose to describe one another?

MÅ: Nicklas Jansson has a really good tone in his playing; I hear right away that it’s him playing. He’s also very responsive, which Niklas Dahlgren also is. They both have so much feeling when playing. It’s very inspiring.

NJ: Markus is a great singer and bass player, and brings loads of feelings into the music – he inspires me every time. He also has a really good ear for structure and melodies in our songs! Nicklas Dahlgren and I have played with each other for many years in different bands and still to this day, I’ve never played with a more genuine, tight and groovy drummer! Both of them blow my mind every now and then!
