(Answers by Brendan Han)

How do you hope your listeners feel with your music ? 

In my perfect world, our music would make them feel anything, whether it was happiness or sadness.  It would inspire them and give them hope. 

What's been your favorite live show you've ever seen and why?

I think I can speak for at least most of the members of the band when I say that, at least recently, our favorite show was by Moon Hooch a few weeks ago.  It was one of the wildest, most energetic live shows I've been to for sure.  It was like a rave but with horns and it melted my mind.  And having three horns players in the band, I think you can see how much we appreciate that.

If you could collaborate with any current artist, who would it be and why?

A band that's really inspired me as of late would be The Head and the Heart.  It's not a coincidence that the title song of our EP is called Head and Heart.  I obviously love all their songs but their lyrics are also relatable and they make me think.

Why do you think local music matters?

Local music is the best way to really grow as a musician.  It's the only way to meet and talk to other musicians, where you can really learn more about music as a whole and discover things you never would have found on your own.


ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Chasing Nora

Chasing Nora is our second artist on the bill for Saturday's event!

How do you hope your listeners feel with your music ? 

Chasing Nora is a project that hopes to evoke reflective, pensive thoughts in its listeners.

What's been your favorite live show you've ever seen and why?

 I saw Go Radio play at Bottom of the Hill in SF.  I really like the show because it was a small, intimate venue and I was really into Go Radio at the time.

 If you could collaborate with any current artist, who would it be?

I would collaborate with Bon Iver because I have always wanted to learn more about his writing and recording process.

Why do you think local music matters?

Local music matters because it fills the holes made by mainstream music.


2013

It’s been quite a ride. The past seven months since the beginning of Beating Lights, I’ve been able to discover so much more music, see (and shoot) so many more concerts, and meet so many more musicians. 

As 2013 ends in a couple days, I am more than excited to begin the new year. I am so thankful for anyone who reads this blog, so grateful for anyone who’s supported me thus far, and of course, so happy to have met the people I have because of Beating Lights. I have big, BIG plans for the future.

So enjoy these last couple days of 2013, happy new year, and get ready for 2014. :)

Much love,
