Good day Nikki Wozzo! Give a brief history of your project, music style, and the members.
Well, The Bad Whiskey is my solo band based out of Los Angeles, CA. We started in 2018, but really it was a moving project in early 2015. This band does Country Rock, with attitude and power! The members are all some of the best up-and-coming musicians in Hollywood, playing for several bands around the city; I was able to see their ability to play and perform as real professionals, and that’s what I like in a musician.
Give in more detail, some information about your latest two singles The Bad Whiskey and Wild Rose?
So, the first single, “The Bad Whiskey,” is the title track on the first ever record, coming from my solo project. It’s a story about getting hammered on whiskey and burning your house down to the ground! There is a personal story to that, which I’m sure my friend wouldn’t want me spreading it too much, but it is also how I came up with the band name. As for “Wild Rose,” that’s a song about my home, Wild Rose County in Alberta, Canada. It is a description of when I first moved to LA, and how much I missed home when I left; although California is beautiful and unique, so is my home, I will always be drawn back to her.
What is the difference between your latest and the very first records?
Compared to other records I’ve done, this is my first ever solo record, and my first in Country Rock as well. Compared to my other band Serpents Kiss, which is a NWOBHM band from Northern England, our records have a huge difference from what this record is going to be.
What inspires you for music and lyric writing? What does your lyrics talk about?
My inspirations come from personal experiences; all of my music and lyrics are in some way describing a specific point in my life that I have been through or dealt with, some good, some bad.
Do you play live often?
I currently have a band together in Los Angeles now, and we are ready to play shows. We’re planning to start in June 2019, playing as many gigs as possible.
How often do you practice and work on new material?
With the band, we usually practice once a week to every two weeks, but for myself personally, I am working on my stuff and writing stuff almost every day for a minimum of 4 – 5 hours.
What does the band plan on doing in near time?
For now, I plan to get the record finished and ready for touring around the USA and Canada, and kicking some rock’n’roll ass in the process.
