Interview with . . . Passafire

 

This interview with Passafire has been in my pocket for awhile. It’s time to share it with you guys before the summer is over.  Bassist Will Kubley of Passafire took some time out of his busy schedule weeks ago to answer a few questions. Without further ado, here is the long-awaited interview with Passafire. ( Probably only waited for by Will and myself….) Anyway, enjoy!

 

 

 

Do you get back home to Georgia very often?

We lived and formed the band there but didn’t grow up in Georgia. It is a second home to us though! Now we’re really only back when we play shows. I miss Savannah sometimes.

Do you have any favorite cities or sites? Is there something that you check out in every town, like breweries, record stores, etc.?

Coffee shops! I always make a point on tour to explore and walk around near the venue and I’m usually guided towards the local coffee spot. Besides my obsession with coffee, they always seem to be interesting indicators of art and culture in any given city.

Where was your first show?

I think my first show was Jacksonville FL at Jackrabbits opening for Authority Zero and OPM in 2006? We’ve done at least 100 shows a year since then so it gets a little hazy. The band was playing locally for a few years before I joined.

Is it difficult to place your music in one genre?

I would say so, yeah. Labeling and genres has always been a tricky thing for us. The touring scene we’re a part of is definitely “reggae rock” and while we frequently use reggae and all it’s influences as a centerpiece, sometimes we don’t at all. The four of us all have very different musical tastes and even that is changing all the time. We’re used to not really fitting in to one genre. We don’t focus on it, we make music that feels right to the four of us.

Was making this album a lot different than making your first album?

Of course! Every album has a different process. I’d like to think each album chronicles our path of becoming better players and songwriters, and also how to use the studio as another tool to shape our sound. Each one gets better than the last in my opinion.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
