The Daily Consciousness: You guys opened for The Novaks at the Seahorse, how did that come about?
Played a showcase at in Yarmouth for Nova Scotia Music Week at around 3am. Apparently we turned the head of the promoter for the Seahorse. The phone rang a few days later. We got a few dates at the Seahorse, one of them being the show with the Novaks. It ended up being one of the best shows we’ve played to date.
The Daily Consciousness: Your full length album is currently in the process of being finalized we’re curious if you have titled it yet?
A lot of names were placed on the table, but I think we are going to just keep it simple have the first album be self titled.
The Daily Consciousness: Who influences Young River?
Bry Webb, Malcolm Young, Phil Lynott and Levon Helms would the weirdest/best band ever.
The Daily Consciousness: Whats your personal favorite young river song?
Matt: Ultimatum is definitely our best song, guys.
Brodie: You’re an idiot. Its obviously Set You Right.
Zach: I’d say it’s Rights Words, but who am I?
The Daily Consciousness: Whats Young Rivers overall message to the world?
Eat your vegetables and do what you want.
The Daily Consciousness: Recommend three artists our readers would enjoy.
Jay Smith, Adam Baldwin and Laura Merrimen. Friends we admire.
The Daily Consciousness: Other than making music does Young River have any other hobbies?
Brodie draws disturbing things (which will end up being the album art in some way). Zach enjoys not watching TV. Matt likes Scotch.
The Daily Consciousness: In your opinion(s) what is the most rewarding aspect of making music?
The process of writing is always rewarding. Creating something from scratch and trying to display it to as many people as possible. It’s challenging but really rewarding, even if its not necessarily successful.
The Daily Consciousness: How long has the band been together?
Pushing 3 years
The Daily Consciousness: To wrap this up is there anything you’d like your fans to know?
