In our latest band spotlight, we chat to Piqued Jacks about their music and inspirations.
S] What inspires your music?
The music itself, especially if it’s played by bands like Biffy Clyro, The Killers, Queens of the Stone Age and Incubus. Since music is our primary way of expression, everything of our everyday life ends up inside our songs.
S] What motivates you outside of music, think people and places?
We’ve always found motivation inside ourselves because we strongly believe in what we do, but people’s support is a great fuel as well. Our families contributed a lot to our adventures, that’s why we thank them everytime we have the chance (see that? we just can’t stop).
In term of places, three of them are particularly important: Buggiano, Austin and the UK. We want to escape from our hometown, get back to the SXSW and play our music for the Queen.
S] What has been a defining moment in your career?
Probably our first US tour, when we moved to Texas from October 2013 to March 2014 and threw ourselves into a new music scene. We learned a lot, we discovered a new market that shaped and defined our project, preparing it for another tour and another album. We developed our self confidence and chemistry, but also our love for Whataburger.
S] What message do you have for your fans reading?
Folks, come to see us live, and then we’ll be friends for the rest of our lives.
