Featured Artist interview: Panic Cell (E42)

About: Panic Cell

1). How much time do you spend writing, performing, and listening to music each day? 
I spend literally everyday doing something that's music related and to do with Panic Cell.  Anything from writing a new riff, a melody to dealing with band business.  There's no time to stop when you are so passionate about music and want to succeed.

2). What does your family think about your music? 
My family have been behind me ever since i decided i want to take music more seriously and have been supporting me the 7 plus years I've really focused on music.  My fiance especially has really been supportive and without her it would be a struggle.  My family and friends like the music generally, Crazy especially has been very well received.

3). What profession did you want to have when you were a child? Did you think that you would be a musician? 
I've always been attracted to music, even before i wanted to learn to play guitar.   As a kid i had aspirations to be in a band and would spend my time mocking up albums covers and magazines of bands I would be in.  Wannabe professions included journalism, basically i think from the start i wanted to do something creative.  Music certainly covers that angle, along with the business side that i continue to do on a daily basis.

4). What mood is the best for you to be in for writing music? 
I used this word before, but creative is such a key element.  I think you have to be in a right frame of mind when writing a piece of music that is emotive, something that connects to the listener.  Best time to write the best music for me is when in a room with my band, a simple short idea can flourish into an amazing piece of music and give everyone the biggest buzz!

5). In three words, describe the emotional characteristics of your musical style. 
Passion, Creativity and Commitment.
