10 Questions With Bradley Denniston

December 15, 2020

Another "10 Questions Interview" Session today! This time we will be diving into the Pop genre! We had a great time interviewing today's artist. Check below our 10 questions with Bradley Denniston!

Let's get to it right away! What’s your favorite ’90s jam and your memory attach to it?

Everclear, "Fire Maple Song" - My Dad put me on to all the latest music back in the 90’s. He showed me and my brothers bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Everclear and would play The Beatles, The Who and tons of other classics when we went to work for him at the age of 14. I remember when we first heard "Fire Maple Song" we were like, "Dad, this sucks! Sounds like Country!"... Haha, after listening to it over and over again, we started really digging it and that whole album, "World Of Noise" they just had this total garage rock vibe that was super dope and fresh back in 93'.

What's the best thing you got from one of your parents?

I won the "dope parents lottery"... My mom and dad started having kids at 17 and 18 years old. They were young and more like awesome friends that were figuring it out with us! My favorite thing my parents let us do is throw THREE different shows at our house with multiple bands. Over 250 kids from our highschool and neighboring highschools all came through, moshed and crowd surfed... I think I was 17 at the time. It was wild but my parents were just supportive like that. Until the 3rd time when kids were getting drunk and smoking weed, then it was over!

What are you known for?

Anyone that really knows me would say that I am a very active doer... I do stuff, produce, write, build, make tons of messes while I do it and then figure it out as I go. I think that's been the key to anything I've been successful at as well, just do shit and figure out how to make it better and better as you go!

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

CHASE THE MONEY! Haha... So many people get this backwards, I know I did for over 30 years. If you can't eat, pay rent, buy necessities, how the hell do you expect to spend massive amounts of time being creative in a studio with gear that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars? The record production business is EXPENSIVE. My speakers alone cost me over $8,000... Get your money right. Work a job if you have to, stop being above it all and in reality broke af. It's not as cool as the internet makes it out to be. ;)

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

The music industry is a complete joke. Everyone that's in it knows it. Honestly when MTV decided to stop playing music videos, the rockstar died. The thing I would change about the industry would be to add more taxation and structure to these trillion-dollar tech companies. The music industry is ran by technology companies now, Apple, Google, Spotify... The music is secondary to the machine-learning algorthms. We need to go back to promoting the music more, not JUST the businesses and partnerships those businesses have. That's how music comes back to the people and real art begins to be able to be expressed freely again! Not having to write for the algorthms... SO LAME.

If you would have the possibility to collaborate with a big artist, who would that be? why?

Honestly, I think Kayne had it right back in the days when he hit up Bon Iver's frontman, Justin Vernon... The dude is so talented and experiments like crazy! Would love to do some mushrooms, have a whiskey and just make some crazy shit with him out in the woods. Plus he's got engineering chops and that's something I highly respect!

What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?

Well... I went to prison for 10 years. HAHA. Just messing with you! But I'm pretty sure I could've when I was living down in Costa Rica when I was 20 years old with my good friend, Shaughnessy White. I was selling some weed here and there to see if I could make a profit, then I had a genius idea to try and sell something a little more "potent"... Let's just say the local business men didn't appreciate that too much in the beach town I lived in. Definitely thought I was going to get murdered. Is that too dark?..

How would you describe the music that you typically create?

I'd describe my music as being a big stir pot of every musical influence I've experienced in my life... In and out of the studio. From working on Pee Wee's Big Holiday to being in the studio with Tegan from Tegan and Sara. I've worked on hundreds of trap records now as well so I'm pretty sure some of that will make it into my sound. Don't expect me to be spitting Migo's triplet flows though... Haha...

What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?

Something entrepreneurial. It's in my blood and my DNA. My Grandfather started a business and fed multiple families and generations from it, my Dad has his own business and raised 3 boys from it and honestly I love being 100% responsible for both the upside and downside. Everything's your fault and you can't run from it when you're the boss!

What is one message you would give to your fans?

Keep listening. I promise it gets even better!

Our Musicians' word’s

"I purchased a month of radio and air play pitches. I ended up getting picked up by 20 radio stations and got invited to do 2 interviews! My song play stats have almost doubled now and I've gotten a lot of healthy exposure. Next time I have a single I want to spread to the masses, I am working with Indiependency again."
