Hard work, the recipe to success for hard rock band Silvertung
Speed, the lead vocalist of hard rock band Silvertung, that has released three albums and hit the Billboard Mainstream Rock Radio Chart three times with the following three singles – “Never Too Late,” “Face The Music” and “You & Me” joins the eMusician Podcast Show.
Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Speed discuss the following:
- Let’s go back to the beginning. How did you get your start?
- How would you describe your sound to those who don’t know you and has this evolved over time?
- You’ve had a lot of success in a short amount of time — including several songs on the Billboard charts — what do you attribute this to?
- You’ve done most of the “work” on your own, correct? Meaning, without a major record label backing you. Can you explain to our listeners how you do this and what goes into being an independently successful band?
- What advice do you have for other independent bands and artists out there trying to do what you do?
- You just released an all acoustic EP entitled “Lighten Up” and now a DVD to accompany it — what was that like?
- What’s next for Silvertung?
