Featured Artist interview: Rescue The Eskimo (E71)

About: Rescue The Eskimo from Manchester, UK

"I would just like to introduce you to a new Manchester band; their name is Rescue The Eskimo.
The band formed in September 2010 and has already created many new tracks in quick succession.
Consisting of 4 members which include 3 guitarists and one percussionist, 3 of whom provide the vocals and harmonies. All band members are current students at Manchester music base and are studying on a performing musician course however each band member has experience of being in bands or as solo artists. The band has recently started to take the music to the streets of Manchester."

1).What do you think will happen to music in 50 years?
See it exploding, new technology is opening far more doors than ever before but also puts a spotlight on simplistic music at the same time

2).What are the main difficulties for being a musician in your country?
The amount of bands of the same genre makes it hard to stand out in some aspects in previous projects I've worked on. However with rescue we have got a very unique angle on an old genre and so this problem doesn't really matter

3).Would you like your children to become musicians, just like you do? Why yes or why not?
I would because being a musician has broadened me into the person I am today, confidence and people skills etc are paramount to having a happy life and these are all gained as a musican.Plus Girls/Guys dig musicians! haha

4).What is the instrument of your dream? (type/brand/model)
Cole Clark fat lady acoustic guitars. Handmade in Australia and everyone has its own unique sound. Amazing

5).If you could raise one music idol from the dead – who would it be
Robert nesta marley (bob marley) his songs said more than protests ever good. A true inspiration
