Who is answering the questions?
Don Huffman, lead singer
Tell us about your latest project:
“Chaos Serum” was released on April 28th, 2023 containing 10 songs, including the recent video for “Static”. “Static” has garnered 4 film festival selections so far worldwide, and the album is available on all digital platforms. The next single off the album should be released in the summer.
Where was your first concert as a fan?
First concert was Lollapalooza in Fairfax, VA. Pearl Jam, one of my favorite bands performed, and that energy from Eddie Vedder’s vocals really set me on my course to making music.
What is the secret to writing good music?
The capability to bring your emotions and life experiences into a song that people can relate to in their own world seems to be the magic equation. Fans want to immerse themselves in a song to get away from the chaos out there.
Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?
No real bucket list, but I would love the opportunity to travel to Europe. Always wanted to see Ireland.
What was the last thing that you read?
I’m more of a newsie than a book reader. I think the last book I read was a Dan Brown novel.
What are you listening to at the moment?
I’ve been digging the new Extreme songs, Alter Bridge, Metallica, and tons of great indie bands who aren’t in the spotlight like Fear Not The Wolf. The Baltimore, MD music scene has tons of great bands as well in Goodbye July, Rise Among Rivals, Steep Steps, and With Satellites.
If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing?
I do have a full-time job outside music and would love to be playing more golf.
Who would you like to collaborate with in the future?
If I ever had the opportunity to record with Bono or any legendary songwriters, it would be an amazing experience for sure.
What do you want people to know about your music?
I would love for them to listen to the album and feel the high energy blasting through their speakers. I make music to move people and the music isn’t just a single genre. I use multiple genres to get the message across.
