Team Of Rivals - Alternative/Indie Rock, USA (E97)

About: Team Of Rivals, talented trio from NY.

"Shortly after moving to the U.S. from Israel to begin his music career, singer-songwriter Omer Wald met Jino Arielly, a bass player and producer also from Israel. The pair began refining a number of songs that Omer had been working on for years. After many months of polishing the brooding, guitar-driven tracks, they realized the music was finally ready. Jino then recruited Brian McFadden, a drummer and former bandmate. A Team of Rivals was born."

1). If you had a chance to be in a movie, what movie and what part would you choose?
We could probably fit in any superhero movie. As for characters, Brian would be Superman, Omer - Batman and Jino - Spiderman.

2). Would you like to have your own radio station? If yes - What would you name it and what music would you play on it?
Having our own radio show is awesome! We would love that. We would call it 'Passing Cars with Team of Rivals' and we'll play any of our influences, Radiohead, Muse, Incubus, System Of A Down, Portishead, STP, Chili Peppers..... there's a lot to choose from!

3).Name the three characteristics that you think are most important for a musician to have?
perseverance, Talent and Drive.

4).Does your family like your music? Do they support you?
Our families really like our music. For Brian and me (Jino) this is the first time we play in a band that's not heavy so it's easier for everyone to connect.

5). Please share with us your first experience on stage. Where was it and how did it go?
We just had an acoustic show yesterday. Acoustic shows are great because the vocals and the lyrics come out better. The show was amazing! We made some new best friends.
