Today I spoke with the brilliant and innovative electronic solo artist Pewee In The Garage, who I reviewed recently. Welcome to Independent Music Promotions. Tell us about Pewee In The Garage and what you bring to the table.
Pewee In The Garage (PITG) is a bedroom musician, one woman band, and a music producer wannabe who initially creates her music as a sweet escape from her routine. Raised with lots of influence in music, PITG was developing her musical ability since childhood. Played in a band as vocalist and violist was PITG’s activity at school and college. After two years of vacuum in music, PITG start to experiment with her laptop and midi controller. With digital sound, PITG try to create fresh sound yet original regardless of what genre is hitting town.
What do you feel are some of the ways that indie bands should adapt and change in today’s music industry? What qualities should a successful band have?
Today’s indie music is rapidly growing and rich with mixture of different genre of music. As long as the band is always exploring and keep being original, the gigs will always follow.
What have you found works well for you as far as promotion goes?
PITG choose a personal approach when it comes to promotion. Social media does very well in connecting PITG with her listener. Fans bounding and collaboration with other musicians create bigger fan base and of course new great experiences.
Who in music today do you most admire most and why?
This is the most difficult question for me because I admire almost great musicians out there. Ellie Goulding and Oh Land are few names I’ve though instantly 😀 I love them because they are unique in their own way, their music, their style, I never get bored listening to their music because I can’t find the similarity in others.
Do you have any advice for independent musicians who may feel disillusioned or discouraged at times?
Keep creating, keep inventing and keep your originality. Enjoy the process and great results will follow 🙂
How can music fans keep tabs on Pewee In The Garage?
Honestly I don’t know. I make music to please my self and if it pleases others, it’s a bonus.
