The Lonely Biscuits Q&A
1. How did you guys meet and form?
Grady and Sam were random roommates freshman year and started playing some music together. John joined about a month later, and Nick joined a couple months after that. We all lived on the same floor in our dorm at Belmont U.
2. Take us through your writing process.
We usually just go into our jam room, and someone will start playing something and we go with it. Something cool usually comes out, which is awesome. From there we brainstorm a direction for the song and then go from there.
3. What has been the most difficult obstacle for you to overcome as a band?
Probably figuring out how to get our music out to more than just our current fans. Luckily the internet has been a huge part of that, along with word of mouth. We have to be really creative with what we say and how we say it on the internet to get the most engagement and reach.
4. What are your favorite and least favorite parts about touring?
Favorite part of touring is definitely getting to see new places. It’s awesome. The least favorite might be having to stay in hotels and eating at random places. Gets old after a while.
5. What was your initial reaction to being named mtvU’s first “College Artist of the Year?”
We freaked out. They came to our house and surprised us and it was pretty crazy. Still can’t believe it.
6. How did playing at SXSW influence the band?
We got to see what it’s like for bands to get down there and grind, playing 3 or 4 shows a day, and marketing themselves relentlessly to all the people there.
7. What is one thing you’ve always wanted to happen at a show of yours?
The birth of a baby biscuit.
8. How does it feel to have your EP, “A Girl Named Destiny,” on Billboard’s Regional Heatseekers Chart?
Feels great, and makes us feel a little more legit as a band. It’s awesome to get recognition as an independent band.
9. What did you set out to accomplish with your new EP, “Things Sure Have Changed,” released on October 29th?
We want as many people as possible to hear it and relate to it. We want to come play it for you in your city.
10. Is there a certain message you hope your fans gain from listening to your music?
We want our fans to feel good and to spread the positive vibes as much as possible.
