SO. What is your Name? where are you from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?

CO. My name is Coast , I’m from New Brunswick NJ, Exit 9🧬 and man, just the energy that comes off of music . You can really lose yourself in some lyrics and I just want the world to hear my story.

SO. Who and/or what inspires you to create?

CO. Well it all started with my boy Losey back in high school, that’s when I decided i’m really try this out , and it’s just advanced to the point that I’m at now .

SO. How would you describe your sound?

CO. Unique definitely, I don’t chase after flows , I try to be original with every drop. Holding onto a flow get stagnant after awhile , and I’m the Coast i gotta keep the wave movin’ !

SO. What is your creative process like?

CO. Definitely magical , I can sit for hours writing music like I can spend hours fixing my car , just simply throwing on a beat on , free-styling , if I say something I like I’ll write it down and base my next lyrics off that

SO. What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?

CO. Mans 100% Lil Uzi, been waiting for years and I know it’ll happen , after that definitely 2KBABY, Me and Jack Harlow would make a killer record for a fact.

SO. What is one message you would give to your supporters?

CO. I definitely see and love all ya, weather it’s 3 of you or a million my love will forever be the same towards ya💕

SO. What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?

CO. Shiiiiii, I can low-key kill some stand up but they not ready for that yet 👀 and definitely act 😖🤣

SO. What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?

CO. Probably a mechanic , or something along the lines of that .

SO. Who are some artists/people you admire and why?

CO. J Cole definitely has taught me a lot , I used to bump his stuff everyday before school and it’ll give a nice lil mind-space bubble from everyone else

SO. What is the best advice you’ve been given?

CO. Kill every mic you touch. That’s all.

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

CO. The dirty side of it . There’s money for everyone , seeing as in people get 5 Million just for a video call. Yet there’s people struggling to pay rent that are meaningful to society, not a hated “icon” . But who am I to judge , they “made it” right?

SO. What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?

CO.I’m going to Disney land! Sike nahhh, get my family good . Nice crib out by no one , not a problem in sight straight living life . Touring constantly, interacting with fans , getting people homes that live on the streets, simply makin’ the world a better place for my kids to live in.

SO. What is your social media? How can people get in contact with you?

CO. @itscoast_ is my Instagram ya , thank you for taking the time to read a lil part of my story! Stick around for the rest 💕🧬

#GetSOM Via @DJGojabean @thegfmband @StraightOfficialMag

#LaBodega #QuarantineTalk

SO. What are your Names? where you’re from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?

GFM. CJ, Maggie, and LuLu.  We’re from Jacksonville, FL.  We are all sisters, and our parents wanted us to take music lessons for 2 years. They said if we hated it, we could quit, but we all ended up loving music.  We played our first show when Lu was maybe 7, Maggie was 10 or 11, and CJ was 12.  We were all on spring break, and on the way home, we told our parents we wanted to perform for the rest of our lives.

SO. Who and/or what inspires you to create?

GFM. We honestly inspire each other, We learn from each other and consistently grow with each other. We also are inspired by our fans and their stories and how much they have overcome. We try to take inspiration from everything we can. 

SO. How would you describe your sound?

GFM. We are beauty-core!  It’s a mashup of pop, punk, metal, rock; it’s got a little bit of everything!  We love the heavy breakdowns, riffs, and screams, but we also love a good melody.  Our sound is very “in-your-face” in a positive way.

SO. What is your creative process like?

GFM. It’s different every time. Sometimes, inspiration just strikes, and you’re rapid-fire bouncing ideas off of each other and writing them down as fast as possible.  Other times, we like to start with a theme or idea, and we write a song that encompasses those factors. 

SO. What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?

GFM. We’d love to collaborate with artists like Lights, Marshmello, A Day To Remember, BTS, Babymetal there’s too many to name haha.

SO. What is one message you would give to your supporters?

GFM. Never give up. You are so much stronger than you may realize.  Life can be very hard sometimes, and it’s so important to reach out if you need help. Reach out to us; we try to always be available. You can get through this, and you do matter.

SO. What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?

GFM. We are actually all pretty good cooks, and we’re pretty good at playing video games. We can sew pretty well, and we’re getting good at penpalling/letter writing.  We’re pretty open about our lives with our fans though, so there’s not much they don’t know haha.

SO. What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?

GFM. We’d all still be in school haha. 

SO. Who are some artists/people you admire and why?

GFM. Lacey Sturm because she is the woman who let us know that girls can scream too.  Not to be cheesy, but we really admire our parents as well because of how hard working they are and how much they have and continue to support us.

SO. What is the best advice you’ve been given?

GFM. Be your own biggest cheerleader, celebrate the small things, and don’t burn bridges.

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

GFM. We want more women involved!  Our goal with beauty-core is to encourage more women and young girls to join the music industry. 

SO. What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?

GFM.W e’ve got new releases, and new shows on the way. Because there were so many cancellations this year, we’re planning on being on the road for a long time next year. 2021 is going to be big.

SO. What is your social media? How can people get in contact with you? 

GFM. Everything is @thegfmband.  It’s super easy to find us; our website is even www.thegfmband.com, and it has all the links to our social media pages as well.  If you’re looking to find us on any digital download/streaming site, search Gold Frankincense & Myrrh.

SO. What are your Names? where you’re from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?

ASS. We are Ben (bass, vocals), Rob (lead guitar, vocals), Chad (rhythm guitar, vocals), and Thom (drums, vocals) We’re from Minneapolis, Minnesota. We like music! Our parents played in bands when we were kids, that was one of the biggest things. Our favorite movie was La Bamba at 5 years old, Richie Valens being a rock star. We didn’t like him being killed in a plane crash. At age 6, we flew on a plane for the first time and flipped out, Thanks, La Bamba. At age 6, our buddy Nick had a white guitar with a rose on it. It was inspiration to be in a band and sing.
SO. Who and/or what inspires you to create?
ASS. Dog, friends, work, thoughts, and opinion.
SO. How would you describe your sound?
ASS. Loud, fast, thrashy aggressive with melody.
SO. What is your creative process like?
ASS. Get a feeling inside and we gotta get it out somehow and that’s it, we’re very messy with it. We’re all over the place. We kind of fight it out. We make it together. It starts out like shit and momentum happens and we make a song out of it.
SO.What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?
ASS. Who would collaborate with ASS?
SO. What is one message you would give to your supporters?
ASS. Dude, all we are is dust in the wind… Have fun cause we’re going to have fun with you. We follow the golden rule. Express your opinions, but you don’t have to be an asshole.
SO. What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?
ASS. Very good at color theory. Can drink 6 beers in a half hour. Going to work hungover.
SO. What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?
ASS. Our regular jobs and bouncing off the walls.
SO. Who are some artists/people you admire and why?
ASS. BB King said learn as much as you can, but sometimes less is more. Whereas Yngwie Malmsteen said less is more and more is more. Roy Orbison. Can’t sound like him, never in a million years. But what we write has a melody until we speed it up and have to shout. Gotta give it to Matt Freeman of Rancid, he’s the reason I play bass.
SO. What is the best advice you’ve been given?
ASS. “Don’t get smart, stay the way you are”.. from my dad. I got a lot of tips from dad and they’re all smart ass tips. You don’t always gotta be like the Joneses, which means be your own fuckin person. You don’t have to do what everybody else fuckin wants or expects you to do. Do what the fuck you want. You become more interesting when you live that way. Be yourself. Golden rule.. Treat others how you want to be treated.
SO. If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
ASS. Less visual, more audio. Fuck the hook.
SO. What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?

ASS. Back playing shows. Playing a show. On stage. Due to this pandemic, all shows have stopped. Just to play a show at Al’s Bowling Alley in Moorhead, MN.
