Doll Skin 2016

Hailing from Arizona, Doll Skin has Definitely been earning their frequent traveling miles, as well as respect from Bands and fans alike along the way.

We were able to sit down and talk to these extremely talented ladies, and the last thing I told them was I was not going to be taken by surprise by them when I see them perform, I thought I knew how good they were.  I WAS WRONG! From the moment they walked on stage, they owned it.  The Vocals that Sydney was belting out, and her stage confidence was as fluid as someone that had been doing it for decades.  The rest of the band was as stage savvy as Sydney as they criss-crossed the stage making sure every side of the audience was getting a full dose of their energy.  This band is the real deal and Dave Ellefson was dead on when he took them under his wing.

I’m not going to mention their age because it shouldn’t matter, if you need to know that listen to the interview.  All you need to know is don’t under estimate them when you see them setting up.  And touring with Otep, Hell Yeah, Escape the Fate and many more does not happen unless the band is worthy.  Doll Skin IS worthy!

Otep 2016

I will admit I was not an OTEP fan, actually I had never heard a single song she had done.  But after so many people I knew were ranting on and on about attending the upcoming show Monday night at the Diamond Ballroom.  So in all honesty, I had know idea how awesome she was or would be!

OTEP lives by her own rules and isn’t afraid of being criticized by anyone as long as she I speaking of what she believes.  I gathered all of that just by seeing her live just one night.

And the talent that she possesses is second to none, a beautiful voice that can get down and dirtier than many of the metal vocalist I’ve seen.  This will not be my only OTEP show I am a dedicated fan now, and I won’t miss a single show whenever she is in town. Why did it take me so long to discover something so great?IMG_3012 IMG_3014 IMG_3122 IMG_3123 IMG_3141 IMG_3177 IMG_3202 IMG_3215 IMG_3221 IMG_3238 IMG_3244 IMG_3251 IMG_3265 IMG_3294 IMG_3337 IMG_3342 IMG_3357 IMG_3371 IMG_3391 IMG_3394 IMG_3410 IMG_3416

Pryti Interview

 

unnamed

We were lucky enough to do a short interview with Pryti.  A special thanks to High Road Publicity for introducing us to her.  She has a deep, soulful sound with dark and meaningful lyrics.  Check out her music video below.  Here is our interview with Pryti:

1. You have such an awesome, dark and soulful sound both vocally and lyrically, where do you draw your inspiration from?

I listen to a wide variety of music and I watch a lot of TV. Some stories tend to stick with me and I write about them also I draw on personal experiences too.

2. I would imagine that being your own manager, label, and agent has its pros and cons.  What are some of the good things and bad things associated with doing it all yourself?
The  good things are that your are in control of what your putting out there in terms of music and image. The bad things are that there is so much competition if you don t have an experienced label, manager and agent with all the contacts it s much more difficult. All the planets pretty much have to be lined up.  
3. Since you are the guitar and bass player, when you play gigs, would you do something more acoustic? Or would you have other musicians playing with you?
I would have a band playing with me and do some acoustic gigs too.
4. Have you always known that music was the path you wanted to follow in life?
Yes Ive always wanted to do this since I was little .
5. If you weren’t a musician, what career would you have chosen?
I would probably be working as a music supervisor or working in the cosmetic industry I love make up too.
6. Do you have any “rituals” or “habits” that you go through before you play a gig or even record?
I don t know if I d call worry a ritual or habit but that s what I tend to do.
7. What are your plans for the rest of 2016?  Any plans to play any shows in the US?
I m trying to get live stuff underway. No plans at the moment to play the US one day it will happen.

We want to thank Pryti for taking the time to answer a few questions for us.  Please check out the links below for music, social media, and the music video.

I must admit, I had never heard of Davey Suicide until about a week ago when we received an email telling us that they would be playing here in Oklahoma City this week.  I decided to give the band a quick look and see what I thought, after all, High Road Publicity (that contacted us about the show), has usually been spot on as to my musical preferences and what I would be interested in.

After checking them out, hearing the hook driven lyrics, and seeing the on stage theatrics, they had me all in!

Although it was a Monday show and attendance was light, the entire band brought their “A” game and had me smiling from ear to ear!  Each and every member of this band is capable of keeping the audience captivated all by themselves, put them all together and it’s one hell of a ride!
