The Middle Names’ Savvy Seven

THE MIDDLE NAMES_2

 

1. The best live music venues in my area are…
The Grand Poobah is my favourite place to play in Hobart, pretty much anything goes so you’re always in for a big night. Bar staff are all time, good beer and vibes!

2. The music scene in Hobart is…
Ever growing, changing too I suppose. Some of my favourite bands of all time are Hobart bands.

3. My top tip for artists who self-manage is…
Make the most out of the epic people you meet along the way. Everyone is super supportive in the Australian music scene, most more than willing to help you out.

4. In my opinion, the most important issue facing the music industry is…
Ah too many to mention! People don’t buy music anymore, not on a local level anyway. It’s important that people support their local bands.

5. When on the road, my favourite pit stops are…
Port Macquarie because of the surf, Canberra because my grandma lives there.

6. My biggest career mistake has been…
Geez, I dunno. Probably the way The Middle Names have progressed musically, I think it confused a lot of people. Marketing is a weird thing.

7. My best advice for emerging artists is…
Play. Play as many shows as you can. Enjoy it while you don’t have any money worries when you’re young too.
