Interview with Stonebrother

Interview with Stonebrother

Today, we sat down with Stonebrother to talk music writing inspiration, heroes, and much more. Be sure to check out their music on Spotify below after the interview!

Here is the interview:

What is your inspiration to write your music? Is it your surroundings?


(Zach) For me a large part of it is my surroundings. A lot of our songs are about personal experiences. But sometimes it’s not first-hand experiences, it could be something on the news or something someone told me or anything like that.

What type of music did you listen to growing up?




Growing up, we had a lot of different styles of music around, but mainly classic rock. Stuff like Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, The Beatles, but also some more modern stuff like Billy Talent, Green Day, Alice In Chains. I think that huge variation between genres and styles influenced us a lot, especially in the music we make.

Is there someone you looked up as a hero?


(Leo) For me, the bassist, it was Geddy Lee of Rush. The way he played bass I really respected and admired. For our band, we probably look up to bands like Van Halen, Zeppelin, or G n’ R the most.

If you weren’t a musician, would you be doing today?


(Zach) I have absolutely no idea. Probably studying English in school instead of music, or something else like that. Music is such a huge part of my life that I can’t imagine it not being there.

What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create music?

(Ethan) The best advice I think I’ve ever heard for musicians is never write a song to go viral, because that’s all that’s gonna come out of that. Everyone wants the song that blows up overnight, but most of the time that song is forgotten a week later. Write the music that you want to hear. Write for yourself, and the people that are like you will appreciate that you’re writing something awesome, and you’ll build your crowd through people who actually support your music, not just the “oh that song was cool, what’s next” reaction.
