Featured Artist interview: Haunting Heather (E71)

About: Haunting Heather

"This quartet produces likable rock music ranging from solid ballads, to danceable pop/rock, and powerful/emotional compositions that will move the listener in all directions.
Comprised of Jim Rippee (vocals), Shaun Brening (guitars), Brad Moon (bass), and Michael Keller (drums/keys), Haunting Heather has created and released a debut album (“One”) that focuses on music that is radio friendly."

1).What do you think will happen to music in 50 years?
Music is always evolving and changing but it will be the delivery system that will change most rapidly. If you think about it, in only 30 years we have gone through the following formats: LP, 8 track, cassette tape, DAT, CD, MP3. A few years from now it could be data crystals. Delivery systems and how artists can make a living off of their love and craft will be the biggest changes.

2).What are the main difficulties for being a musician in your country?
It's the zombie musicians they keep raising from the dead. JTerrestrial radio play is the difficulty for any independent act. Everyone can do web 2.0 and all the other venues, but regular radio is a challenge.

3.Would you like your children to become musicians, just like you do? Why yes or why not?
We would if we had any kids ? as far as we know, anyways. Studies have shown that music leads to a better understanding of math and other basic skills. Who doesn?t enjoy music?

4.What is the instrument of your dream? (type/brand/model)?
A Ferrari oh, you mean a musical instrument? I really like those whistles that go, ?whooooooooop?.

5.If you could raise one music idol from the dead ? who would it be?
Seems very dangerous - especially when they decide they like brains. It?s a good thing there is an emergency preparedness plan from the CDC regarding Zombie attacks. Having said that, Mozart would probably be an interesting zombie.
