In our next Band Spotlight, we chat to Secondhand Habit.
What is motivating you outside of music right now?
We really like to support our local scene and the best way to do that is to keep putting together local shows and tours to bring attention to the amazing bands that are located in your backyard.
What are your biggest challenges as a band?
Making waves in the larger marketplace is quite difficult. With everyone having access to everything at their finger tips you really have to strike a chord with someone for them to listen to you.
How do you define success?
Whenever we hear from a fan that they are digging the songs it’s awesome. In this modern era we have views and streams to check but we have no way of knowing when people jam us on road trips or wear out their CDs and need new ones. Reaching the fans is always the goal so it’s great when they contact us with stories.
What has been a career highlight so far?
A few years ago while we were lucky enough to play at the Oasis Rock n Roll Marathon in Vancouver which meant playing in the morning on a Sunday in Stanley Park. We had played a show the night before followed by a night of hanging out with friends and barely sleeping on someone’s floor. We had to get up at like 6 in the morning to get to the van and drive into Stanley Park before the Marathon started. Everyone was super dead but something about the cold ocean breeze, sunrise and view woke us up and we proceeded to rock the place!
