MW: Thanks for talking today. It's great to hear about new artists and how they are handling their careers.
WO: Thank-you for having me!
MW: Could you describe your music for anyone who may not have heard it?
WO: My musical passion is Rock with my genre being Modern Classic Rock. My earliest inspirations have come from the music of all the great Classical Rock Bands.
MW: A lot of the readers of this blog are curious about the recording end of productions – could you let us know what your studio set up is like?
WO: Well right now in studio I record with a ProTools HD rig with an Avalon pre amp set-up with a M audio interface.
MW: How old were you when you first started doing music? What was your first instrument?
WO: Well I started playing the guitar when I was about 7 years old. I had gotten a really cool black and white Squier Mini for Christmas that year!
MW: Who do you think are some of your biggest influences?
WO: Well some of my very early biggest influences were AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young and all the classic rock from that era.
MW: Were there any individuals that really helped you out in your journey? Who were they?
WO: Yes very much so! Of course my family has been there for me all the way and I am very grateful to them for all their love and support . But I also have a couple of great producer s Chris “Captain Hooks” Doss and Rob McCann that are totally amazing.
MW: What was the craziest thing you ever encountered in a live scenario?
WO: Surprisingly so far the only crazy thing that has happened to me onstage has been almost dropping my favorite guitar in the middle of a song when the strap came off!
MW: Could you tell us about your latest release?
WO: Well my song “Coming Home” is based on those days we all have when you are trying to get home to family and friends after a long day and you feel like you can’t get to the ones you love fast enough. I had the song in my head for a long time and really wanted to record it and I finally found a great producer to record with. You can find “Coming Home” on soundcloud and itunes, Spotify etc.
MW: Sounds awesome, where can people go to hear more about you?
WO: You can find me everywhere @WillOvid
MW: Thanks again for taking this time to chat!
MP: It’s been really great talking to you!
