Interview --- 1.  Can you tell us about the journey of Tess & The Details, from forming the band to signing with Double Helix Records and Engineer Records? Tess & the Details began as a singer-songwriter project. In 2020, Tess went to the studio to record an EP, where she met Jacob and Gideon. After releasing the first EP, "Patient 139," Tess and Gideon became close friends and started writing songs together. By the beginning of 2021, they realized they had enough material for

1. In HEADLINERS UNTAPPED, we want to highlight the musical journey of the artists we interview: where you started, where you’re going, and the hurdles you’ve faced along the way. Tell us about your first steps into your musical lives. Nick: Yeah, okay, so my first steps in music were probably influenced by my dad. He plays guitar in church. He sings and plays guitar, and that was actually what made me want to be a guitar player first. But then I

Interview --- 1.  How has transitioning from Corduroy to Minus 1, and now to Proteus, influenced your music? When Corduroy was formed as a 5-piece Pearl Jam tribute, our band’s goals and inspirations were very different. I had taken almost a decade off from playing guitar and joined the band on a whim to try to get back into music. The other original member from Corduroy, Sean, had never performed live with a band before. We both felt fairly neutral about Pearl Jam’s music,

Interview --- 1.  What were your early musical experiences like, and how did they lead you to start the band Future Crooks? In the echoes of my earliest musical memories, my other brother would blast Metallica and ACDC in his giant red truck hurtling through time. Also, in my possession was a collection of scrolls, otherwise known as analogue cassette tapes, featuring 'The Lion King,' Sublime, and No Doubt. When I turned 8, I embarked on a journey across the misty mountains to Oregon,

Interview --- 1.  Can you tell us about the origins of King Julian and how the band came together in San Diego, CA? We’d all seen each other play throughout the scene with other groups. Each of us probably has a different story for when and how the band officially started, but the first time Nolan and Hunter jammed was in a buddy’s backyard party after Nolan’s then band’s set. After that, Matt, Nolan and Hunter got together to jam and from there all

Interview --- 1.  What was it about punk rock in particular that drew you in? I think I heard The Clash on the radio. I remember that I would go to the library when I was super young, like in middle school, and just check out CDs that I thought looked punk. And that’s how I got into Asian Man Records stuff. Like, I picked up Alkaline Trio, The Lawrence Arms, and that kind of led me on the whole journey that I’ve been

Interview --- 1.  Where did the name Kit Major come from? So, Kit Major actually came from my sister. My nickname is Kit. And then Major came actually from a Charlie XCX concert. I used to go by CAT with all capital letters. I was looking at the bill and I saw other people with their names in capital letters and I was just like, I can't see my name on this bill. I can already tell. And so I wanted to have a

Interview --- 1. Tommy and Shea, I read the first day you met in 6th grade you got into a fist fight? Who won? Shea: We did get in a fist fight, yeah. Tommy: There’ve been a couple along the way. Shea: Once or twice. It was at the pool at his parents’ house. Tommy: No one really remembers who won. Shea: I don’t know if there was a definitive victor or not. I think we just stopped and I left, and I didn’t think I wanted to

Q: You guys have had a long career. That’s an accomplishment in and of itself! What was the tipping point where playing in a band went from being a hobby to being on the path to success? We all kind of have different journeys because we found each other later on in different bands. For me, it happened when I was really young, but I knew with a crushing pain that I had to be a music creator when I was 9

Interview --- 1.  First off, congrats. You guys have had a long run. 20 years. That’s a success in itself. Not Many people can say that. To have that tenacity and that long of a career, that’s impressive. JB Brubaker: It’s been a long run for sure. We’re really proud of what we’ve accomplished in 20 years, and I feel like it almost is surprising to think that it's been 20 years because it doesn’t really feel that way to me. And then we
