Shackleton – Interview

1 – When did you first get into music? What or who Inspired you?

  • I first got into music when I was young mainly because my dad played guitar, so I wanted to as well.

2 – Who did you grow up listening to, and does that impact on what you create now?

  • As a kid, I grew up listening to a lot of Green Day. I can’t say that Green Day has much musical influence to me currently but the concept/story in American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown does influence me because I believe albums should tell stories and I think that’s part of the reason those albums were so successful.

3 – How long have you been playing/writing?

  • I’ve been writing my own music since I was around 12 years old.

4 – How often do you play live (include details and links for any upcoming gigs)?

  • I haven’t played live yet. There is little to no scene where I live and that puts a constraint on playing out.

5 – What has been your favourite moment in music?

  • My favorite moment in music has to be releasing this album. It has been such a long time in the making and I am very glad I was finally able to complete it.

6 – Where is the best place to find you online?

  1. Wow – I didn’t expect an album inspired by Shackleton’s Adventures – must give it a listen whilst savouring the whisky the great man drank on his voyages. See
