Hailing from Washington, USA, Today, on Guitaa Artist Centerstage, we have an amazing soloist of the ‘Ghost Eye Band’ whose genre is alternative indie and his name is “Moe”.
Let’s get to know more about this cool artist, how his journey into music began, about his various interests, and many more.
- Introduce yourself to our audience, what genre of music do you consider your work to be?
I’m Moe the soloist of Ghost Eyes. I’d consider the genre I do to be Dark Indie Rock. I will always throw a little punk in here and there, but I wouldn’t consider punk to be the main genre.
- What and who were your early passions and influences, What inspires you to make music?
Friends & family influenced me to even pick up a guitar and sing. Also, Bands like Harvey Danger, Weezer, etc. were a big influence on me. My most influential album would have to be Weezer’s Pinkerton.
- Tell us about that one memorable performance and favorite venue which you still wish to happen again?
My friend and I had a show like 7 hours away, all the way down the Oregon Coast. Being in high school I was pretty awkward so playing in front of complete strangers was the worst and best thing to happen! I’d love to go back there with my new material and be a little less awkward.
- Any funny story of a mess up during your performance where you handled that situation like nothing happened?
I break picks a lot. Definitely when playing live. Half of the time I have to finish the song with a broken pick. I broke 3 picks in one song when I did more Acoustic Punk music.
- If you could collaborate with any musicians(dead/alive), who would you collaborate with and why?
Rivers (Weezer) / Mark or Tom (blink 182). hero’s in their genre, they paved the way for alternative music/pop-punk to really thrive the way it has.
- Any Tips to keep the balance between professional and music life?
Juggling is always hard. Unless you’re a clown, and hey, clowns make money. Seriously, just focus on what you like about what you are doing at the moment. Waiting all day to come home and play the guitar will make you not want to go to work. To find beauty in the moment.
- What has been your biggest challenge as a Musician? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?
Vocals. I wasn’t a natural-born singer. I practice whenever I can. When I was younger I couldn’t even stay on pitch at all, but my passion made me push past all the people who said I couldn’t do it.
- What Tools and techniques you use to improve your singing/instrumental playing?
Practice! I found out recording myself on my vocals can really show you, “hey, you know your voice doesn’t sound right here” and you can work on it and make it better. So that’s what I do.
- What type of Gadgets and instruments do you use while practicing? And, do you have any specific name of your instrument?
I’m a sucker for Orange amps. Love them. I also love the acoustic guitar. Played plenty shows just with an acoustic-electric fender.
- What advice would you have for someone wanting to become an Artist?
Don’t listen to negative comments disguised as positive criticism. Most likely they don’t even listen to the genre that you are marking. So if you aren’t making Pop music, don’t listen to them!
