INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT

Brian:     On DC Music Rocks, were shining a spotlight on the great songs and incredible people behind the DC region's music scene. So, now lets get to know one of those great bands here. Soldiers of Suburbia is a three-piece alternative/pop-punk band. They can be described as high energy, loud, abrasive, and in yo face! They love the title given to them by their photographer and videographer, Rouge Crayon, who described them as a three-headed, destructive, pop-punk storm. So, that sets the stage for these great guys. I first came across them when they were- Derek Evry was on the show and introduced me to these guys and the music speaks for itself and just cool people. So, that said, I finally get to, listeners it's with great pleasure that I formally introduce Soldiers of Suburbia.  Say hi, guys.

Tyler:     Hey, how's it goin

Collin:     What an introduction.

Izzy:     Hello!

Brian:     [crosstalk 00:00:55] Yeah, so most folks can only hear you, so tell them who you are, your names and what you play in the band.

Tyler:     Hi, I'm Tyler, I sing and play guitar.

Izzy:     My name's Izzy, I play the drums.

Collin:     Hey, I'm Collin and I play the bass.

Brian:     Fantastic, and now Soldiers of Suburbia, so, fill us in real quick on where the name comes from, what happened with that?

Tyler:     So, the name is not as exciting of a story as I wish that it was. So, I think that the idea that I've come up with is that every time that we get asked about our name we should just come up with something that isn't how we came up with the name so that it sounds more interesting. So I'm gonna go with ... One time-

Brian:     Oh, tell the truth, sir!

Tyler:     Really it's just that I'm a really big Green Day fan and Green Day has a song called Jesus of Suburbia and so the original name of the band was just gonna be Suburbia, which is actually a different cool band in the scene, but I decided that I should try to make it a little more interesting. I don't know, Soldiers of Suburbia just happened.

Brian:     Soldiers of Suburbia, that's amazing, and how did you guys find each other? How did the band start?

Tyler:     Well, I was the one who I guess started the band technically and then I sort of put out some, for those of you listening in your cars, Collin just made fun of me and I did not appreciate it. But I basically just put out an ad on Facebook and said that I was looking for some other musicians to play with and Izzy responded, said that she would like to come play drums, which is funny because in middle school Izzy and I actually hated each other. And then I-

Brian:     Really?

Tyler:     Yeah

Izzy:     I have never not liked someone as much as I didn't like Tyler in middle school, I don't know what it was.

Tyler:     Yeah we just, we didn't mesh but then for some reason two years later I was looking for a drummer and she was like, "You know what, I'll give it a shot." And then we started playing together and it just, it worked out, you know? It went well.

Brian:     That's what I'm saying and now you're okay people you don't actually hate each other all of the time, at least.

Tyler:     Yeah. Most of the time.

Izzy:     No, I still hate them.

Tyler:     Yeah, we actually don't like each other at all, but and then, Collin would you like to tell the story of how we met and how I ignored you?

Brian:     Yes Collin, tell us.

Collin:     It was a clear night, romantic dinners, no we actually used to play at the same place years ago at the 4410 over in Haymarket and it was just one of those things where I was playing open mic and he was just there and I saw him and it was just like, oh, I need to-

Tyler:     We had an emotional connection.

Collin:     We saw eye to eye, no-

Brian:     Unlike the hate between these other two, there was love with you guys? Is that what you're saying?

Tyler:     Yeah, Collin and I fell in love.

Collin:     Love at first sight. No, it was one of those things where it was just, you know, right time at the right place, and I, you know, reached out to him and that's pretty much just how it started. Because it was originally Tyler and Izzy trying their thing just the two of them.

Tyler:     Which was okay but it was not, we really needed a bass.

Brian:     Man, that bass frequency, I'll tell you, the bassists don't always get a lot of love, but when you don't have the bass you miss it so much, it's a thing.

Tyler:     Yeah, I know, they're important, you do miss it.

Izzy:     It was painful.

Tyler:     Yeah, so we auditioned a couple bass players and then Collin showed up and we played with him and it was pretty much a situation whereas soon as we started playing we knew that we wanted him to join the band but we had to, you know, play it cool. So as he walked away we were like, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, we'll call you man, like it's fine." And then he left and I turned to Izzy and I was like, "Yeah, it's good, he's gonna play." And then we've been playing together for a year now."

Collin:     The rest is history.

Brian:     Wow, that's awesome.

Collin:     It's nice though that we're just, you know, it's not just like a band to us. It not like, "Okay, time to go to work, we gotta play some songs, play some shows." You know, as you see we're just having a good time, it's fun.

Tyler:     Yeah, it's fun, we're hanging out.

Izzy:     Three happy kids

Brian:     You all like each other now, this is good. Now, what about, so where did music come from for you guys, I mean were you band kids. What was the- how did music enter- I want to hear from each of you, how did music enter your lives?

Tyler:     Izzy go ahead.

Izzy:     I am a band kid. Loud and proud. Drum line, middle school band, you know, everything, very out there, very happy about it.

Brian:     All the drums, alright and does that mean you also played like all the other symphonic drums like marimba and like xylophone and tympany and that stuff too, or-

Izzy:     Everything, and I snare on the drum line, so a little bit of everything.

Brian:     Got it. Alright, and Collin, what about you, man?

Collin:     It was one of those things where it just started off as being a kid, where if I really get specific, I was a child and for Christmas I got a PlayStation and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 on the PS2 and the opening song for the intro of the game, and like Tony Hawk, his silhouette is like going down like a half pipe or something and TNT by ACDC is playing. And I was like, I don't even know how old I was, this was like 2003. And I was just sitting there in my pajamas like, "What?" And that was kind of the rest and, you know-

Brian:     Wait, but you play bass, you played guitar? What did you start playing first?

Collin:     I started off on guitar and just switched over to bass and you know, eventually you know just growing up you just, all the new bands and all the new music just comes at you at once so it was kind of a, you know.

Brian:     So do you ever, like are you happy about the transition to bass, then?

Collin:     Yeah, it's definitely one of those things where it's not like I never play guitar, when I'm not doing anything. But when we do acoustic stuff I still play guitar and Tyler and I always go back and forth on, "Oh, I'm better at guitar," "No, I'm better," "I'm the song writer."

Tyler:     The joke I like to make, which is a very mean joke, but I think it's on the website, is that Collin wanted to be in our band so bad that he switched to bass.

Collin:     Yeah, I was desperate.

Tyler:     That he was so desperate to be in our band, which is not exactly true, but it's a funny joke to me. So, that's the joke that I always make.

Brian:     So tell us the truth.

Tyler:     I mean, it was one of those situations where he messaged me and was like, "Hey, if you ever needed a guitar player that I would love to come play with you." And I was sort of like, "Well, actually we need a bass player." And he was like, "I'll do it, like it's cool, you know." And so that was sort of how it was. It was a lot more casual than I like to make it out to be.

Brian:     Got it. Collin, you're the man. That's cool, alright. Tyler, what about you, man?

Tyler:     Well, I mean, man. I have a very similar story to Collin that we like to talk about which is I mean, I've always been around music, my aunt is a classical pianist and all this stuff. And I was learning, I took guitar lessons starting when I was four, but the one thing that really sort of grabbed me and made me want to start playing rock music is I got Guitar Hero 3 on the PlayStation.

Brian:     Excellent.

Tyler:     So these are very similar stories and if you've ever played Guitar Hero 3, which I recommend it's a very good game, first you start up the game and it's Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N' Roses and that was one of those things where I heard that and my world was turned inside out. And so here we are.

Brian:     I love it, I love how you guys are influenced by all of these classic awesome rock songs too, it wasn't some kind of pop song, it wasn't a Justin Timberlake song, it was like classic freaking rock. Yes, guitar.

Tyler:     Oh, yeah, Collin and I jammed to some ACDC, and its good times.

Brian:     That is fantastic, alright, now what about you guys outside of music then, what other hobbies, what do you do outside of the band?

Izzy:     I like to bake. I bake Tyler and Collin cupcakes sometimes.

Tyler:     They're very good cupcakes.

Izzy:     I am like the best drummer that they could possibly have just because of the cupcakes. Not even based off of talent, just the cupcakes.

Tyler:     They're good cupcakes man, I don't know what else to say about it.

Brian:     One of these days, the next show, if the listeners show up, there should be some cupcakes. Don't hold out on us.

Izzy:     Yeah!

Tyler:     Well we used to do a thing to entice people to buy tickets, we used to say, "If you buy a ticket from us, we'll give you a cupcake." And we would put SOS on the top of it and stuff.

Izzy:     I would go to school, like the weekend after a show, with a big plastic bucket of cupcakes and just give them to everyone in my school who bought tickets. And it was awesome.

Brian:     That's funny, alright so Izzy's the baker, Collin, what do you got?

Collin:     I'm just your run of the mill 20 year old kid, just playing in a band, I mean that's pretty much it. Soldiers of Suburbia for the last year has been my lifestyle. It's a job, it's my [crosstalk 00:10:21]

Brian:     And school, I take it, too?

Collin:     Not currently.

Brian:     Not currently, okay.

Tyler:     He works at a pretty dope mini golf place

Izzy:     Putt putt!

Brian:     Nice!

Collin:     Working some jobs here and there. And like I said just trying to get by. As soon as I graduated high school in 2015 and the reality of the "real world" has slowly but surely crept into my life.

Brian:     Well I love that you still got the music going on dude.

Collin:     Yeah, it's definitely fun.

Brian:     Keep it going, and Tyler, what about you, man?

Tyler:     Yeah, I mean, music is pretty much the only thing that I'm good at. So I pretty much just sit around and play music or listen to music. I don't really know what else to say to be honest. I got a pretty cool bike the other day, so that's exciting, I don't know.

Brian:     Excellent, I love it, guys. Alright well, I've got one more. There's one question that I love to ask and that's if you as a band could offer one piece of advice what would it be?

Collin:     Don't do it, no I'm joking.

Tyler:     A band's a trap. Let's see, personally I would say that the biggest thing that I think the three of us have learned is that no matter what you go through as a band, it's good, like what Collin said earlier, it's good to actually be friends outside of being in a band as opposed to just being in a band because it can get stressful and it can get difficult. And it's nice that when you're in a stressful time, if you're trying to figure out how to book a show or something, it's nice that you can be like, "You know what, we should just go get some pizza and just hang out for a minute." And it's still fun and you're still in a good environment.

Collin:     Yeah, that's the main thing, just having fun with it, 'cause it's not like, every time we hang out, it's not where we rehearse some songs for about an hour and then we all go home and don't talk to each other ever again, and then the next time we see each other we're playing music. It's definitely not like that. I stay at Izzy's house until like 3 am sometimes hanging out.

Tyler:     Yeah, it's more like these are my only friends, so ...

Brian:     Yeah, got it.

Izzy:     Yeah, even if I used to hate Tyler, now he's my best friend. So [crosstalk 00:12:34]

Collin:     We go to the mall.

Collin:     Izzy and Tyler's birthday are coming up, you know, they're back to back this weekend.

Tyler:     Yeah, very true.

Brian:     Now tell my what the website is for you guys if they want to find out more about you?

Tyler:     Soldiersofsuburbiaband.com

Brian:     Soldiers of Suburbia Band, check it out, and they also have information about an indie go-go campaign on there.

Tyler:     That is true and the link is all of our social media, which again, you can find if you go to our website.

Brian:     And they would love support for, this is for the upcoming album?

Tyler:     This is our EP, our debut EP.

Brian:     Fantastic.

INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT

Brian:     Stone Driver is a critically acclaimed rock band based in Washington, DC. We got Chad, Tim, John, and Dan. Together the pull from a wide diversity of musical influences to create meaningful, relevant, and real music. Stone Driver's been featured on both national and international media outlets, and it has generated diverse fan base of modern rock, blues, grunge, and classic aficionados.

     I first came across these guys when I was checking out the scene, and since I'm in a rock band, I totally loved the rock, and I heard these guys and I was just hooked. And ever since then we've kept in touch. It's with great pleasure that I get to formally introduce Stone Driver. Thanks for being here guys.

Chad:     Thanks for having us.

Brian:     This is amazing. Now, right off the bat I want you to tell us about ... So the name Stone Driver; where did that come from?

Chad:     Oh boy ... That was ...

Tim:     That's a good story, right?

Chad:     It involved, I think a dictionary ... It involved a little bit of bourbon. It involved a little bit of pointing at different names ... And we kind of liked it. I mean, the silly stuff aside ... You know, we think about a lot of the modern rock bands and classic rock bands ... We like Stone Temple Pilots, Rolling Stones, et cetera. So kind of that Stone Theme in Rock music.

Tim:     And then the driving music, the driving beat. That goes along with it to.

John:         It wasn't taken.

Chad:     Yeah, that too.

Tim:     After a Google search ...

Chad:     After multiple Google searches worldwide we found one band name that was still available, so we embraced it.

Brian:     You found it, you found the one. And I love it. Tell me the story about how you guys came together. How did Stone Driver come to be?

Chad:     So it ... Really, in this form it was a mix of all of us kind of reaching out, being independent musicians and using some of the different tools that are out there to find other players. Everybody who's been in a band has been down the deep scary pit that is Craigslist. You can get some unique matches there that ... some are appropriate for radio, some are not. And there's other websites like BandMix where you can find profiles of individuals that kinda list what they're looking for, music influences et cetera. So, we were really kind of lucky to form all together using those tools and just jelling.

Tim:     When I hooked up ... Chad and I were ... We've been in the band the longest at this point, but when I joined up I heard these guys, what they were doing, and thought it was just a great sound and I wanted to be a part of that. I thought it had a lot of potential. So, that's what attracted me to it.

Brian:     While I have you here, I realize that they're listening to you and they don't know your voices. So, introduce yourselves real quick.

Tim:     I'm Tim.

Chad:     I'm Chad.

Dan:     I'm Dan

John:         And I'm John.

Brian:     And tell them the instruments too. What do you play?

Tim:     I play bass.

Chad:     I play guitar, which has also been called the bass piccolo by other people.

Dan:     Dan: I'm the drummer.

John:         And I sing.

Brian:     Got it. And together that's the crew. Cool. All right, so now ... Now talk about where music came from for both of you. How did you end up playing music? How did that start?

John:         I think we've all been in bands for a long time. I mean, unlike some of the guys that we see around DC we're a little bit older. Not much, but a little bit older.

     When I playing music in Boston at Boston College, and was part of that scene in the '90s ... And everybody to my left's got more impressive stories than that.

Dan:     So I'm a recent transplant to DC area ... About three years. I'm originally from the Pacific Northwest, so I kind of grew up in that '90s grunge movement that started happening there. So I played a lot of bands around the West Coast. And over here I got to hook up with these guys.

John:         He's doing the like, "Aww, shucks," thing. This guy has shared the stage with the biggest grunge names of that era: Nirvana and Soundgarden ... And he was in a band called The Whirlies that was like setting the stage for what happened in the '90s. So Dan, as usual is being more humble than necessary.

Dan:     Aww shucks ...

Chad:     It's humble drummers ...

Brian:     Thank you for pointing that out, and I want to know those details. So, please call the other guys out to if they do that as well. We want to know these details. Share them with us.

Chad:     This is Chad, and any interesting details I have are completely fabricated. I grew up in a household that was a really big fan of classic rock and blues. At the same time I was growing up ... You know, similar story ... Grunge was coming out and getting really into Nirvana and Soundgarden, and some of the other heavier acts, like Tool ... So those two kind of influences really weighed heavy on me, but definitely a strong blues-rock base . And, you know, some of the classic influences there.

John:         Again, he's playing it down. So this guy's got connections to rock royalty. The Lush name I think most people know out there. And I think there's an Iron Butterfly connection that he might want to talk about.

Chad:     I am declining any 13 minute drum solos. Although I'm sure with the two drummers we have in this studio, they could do it.

Dan:     We need that.

Chad:     No. My uncle got offered the job to play bass for Iron Butterfly back in the day, and respectfully declined to be a teacher. So, you know, he figured,  "Those long bass solos ... that was just to much man. Let's deal with some kindergartners."

     But also a really big influence on me, musically and wanting to play music.

Tim:     Well, as a bass player, a lot of people will sympathize with my origins. My brother was in a band, he was a guitarist, and there was an upcoming battle of the bands, and the bass player in the band left. So I got drafted to be the bass player. This is quite a long time ago. We won the battle of the bands so I stuck with it. I moved out to Colorado. I played in Boulder for several years out there with several bands. About 15-20 years ago I moved back east and have been playing with a variety of different bands here in the DC area. It's been my dream just to play out, get a really tight band and play good original music. I think I found it with these guys. Just a great connection between all of us, musically.

Brian:     Now that's amazing. Now, what's ... One of my favorite questions to ask, and I'd love to ask you guys ... I want to hear from each of your actually. If you could offer one piece of advice, what would it be?

Chad:     Geez ... Just keep at it. I think that's what I'd throw out there. We were talking a little bit before the show and we were talking about how it can be hard to be a local band, although the internet is exploding, sometimes it seems it's that much harder to pull in a draw or let people know it's local. So I would encourage people, and this isn't a shameless plug, to go to websites like DC Music Rocks and get invested in the community. It's out there, and the more that you network with other groups and other people who appreciate the local music ... The sooner you do that, the sooner you're gonna get some more opportunities. But other than that, you gotta keep plugging, keep plugging, keep plugging, and keep trying to be original with how you can get it out there.

Dan:     I think some of it to, at least for me, you have to have fun doing it. I mean ... There's times where we get done practicing and are playing and we kind of look at each other and are like, "That was fun." I think that's a big part of it too. You have to enjoy it.

John:         You gotta get used to playing for the bartender ... I mean, you're gonna have some of those shows. We've outnumbered the people that we're looking at early on, and you gotta do it. I think Dan's absolutely right. You gotta love it; you gotta have fun. You gotta be able to play that show as hard as you would play the Black Cat. And we've had those shows, and we have fun. We've had some tough nights where it's us up there, but we're doing it 'cuz we love doing it and we have fun. We've had some great shows. I would just wish somebody was around to hear it.

Tim:     I'd say my advice would be, as a musician, is just to keep an open mind and listen to all kinds of different music, because you never know what sort of influence you might get from it. And it's always been my goal to try and draw from all kinds of different music. So that would be my musical advice.

Brian:     And you know, that is a perfect segway into my next question, which is; now what do you guys have in your music collection that might surprise us? You're this hard driving rock band, but what do you have in there that might surprise us?

Chad:     I have the greatest Menudo hits in my car right now, and it's great. It spans the entire 17 to 18 year collection with a full cast of rotating members. I probably should try and recover from that one . Miles Davis; been really into that as of late. So, been trying to get a lot smarter on the jazz front and try to expand a bit, musically. So, trying to push myself there.

John:         I'm wearing a special shirt ... I was ... I could never play it. I started out on the bass; never got as good as Tim, anywhere near Tim. But I started out on the bass and I was hooked on the Ska scene. In Boston Bim Skala Bim was breaking out back then, and I aspired to that, and I still listen to that stuff; Chucklehead and Bim everyday.

Dan:     I gotta pretty surprising one, probably. I have the sound track to the Phantom of the Opera.

Tim:     Really?

Dan:     It's good.

John:         He wears the mask a lot of times at shows, and it's kinda creepy.[crosstalk 00:10:49]

Chad:     I get asked to wear the mask a lot, but that's for other reasons.

Tim:     What kind of drum kit do they use on that?

Dan:     A very special drum kit.

Tim:     Mine is no surprise with being a bass player; old school funk. Anything with a hard driving funk beat ... I'm into that.

Brian:     That's awesome. There's Silkman; that hard driving funk beat is a key to a lot people's hearts too. So that makes a lot of sense.

     Now, just to wrap here. Make sure if those who are listening want to find out more about you guys, where do they go to find out?

Chad:     So Facebook is usually the most up to date. We're @StoneDriverBand on Facebook so you can find us pretty easily there. We've also recently taken to Instagram, which is Stone_Driver on Instagram. And finally, after some years of counseling the band has convinced me to delete our MySpace page, so any aficionados out there ... I apologize. It's no longer an option

Brian:     Excellent.

John:         And Stone Driver.com
