We had the good fortune of connecting with Life After Youth and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Life After, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
The thought process for us was, “How do we make music our career?” Starting a band wasn’t really the goal at first. When we started working together, it was all about recording and producing other artists. After a while, we started writing songs together (which we eventually decided we wanted to keep for ourselves, lol). which kick started the band. Since then, we’ve gotten to add working with other artists regularly back to our band’s business.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Our music centers around us trying to push pop music forward. We take the varied influences of our musical pasts, and combine them in a way that is unique to us. We’ve learned that the best way to make art that resonates with other people is to be honest and genuine with your creation of that art. People crave that,
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We’re both big basketball fans, so we’d probably say going to Mavericks games is pretty high on the list of our favorite things to do in the area. Bishop Cidercade is a cool spot if you like retro arcade games. And we end up spending a lot of time in Deep Ellum. The great venues over there are starting to disappear, but Club Dada, Deep Ellum Art Co., and Ruins are some of the surviving spots that we like over there.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
*NSYNC, Nirvana, our parents, and Butch Walker.
