All About Indie Music Bus

Indie Music Bus

a metaphor for our concept of a “vehicle” to support independent music
Hello, independent music creators and supporters! My name is Walter Hargrave I have a message to the independent music industry based on years of observation and participation. Music has always been a part of my life.  Music has saved me in many ways but that’s another story.  I feel that I owe something back and I have a talent to share. I want to help independent music artists succeed and to eventually bring awareness of what the loss of independent music would mean to our society.
Music is central to my life.  The story of Indie Music Bus™ (IMB) began year 2000.  The need to build a support system started much earlier in 1998, when some friends drew me into supporting their rock band.  I really believed in them, even though our country music town was so unsupportive. I wanted to find a better way to support them! Building computers and writing computer programs is also a passion and my day job. The ability to learn new languages and systems allows me to express myself in many ways.  I feel it to be my strongest creative feature, through which I found ways to help the band beyond my occasional recording, mixing and musical contribution.

Interview with Katie Cole - @KatieColeMusic

About 2 weeks ago we received word that Katie Cole was available for one of our email based Road Trip interviews! We were very excited to hear this as we have been supporting Katie for some time now and just love her work! We will start off with a little from her EPK:


Meet Katie Cole originally from Melbourne, Australia, now based in Los Angeles, USA. Not your every day female singer songwriter. Does she dominate with ballads? No. Does she compose songs on the piano? Rarely. What she does do then? She rocks and enjoys a loud guitar, a strong melodic hook and an up tempo pop song. Growing up on a strict diet of rock music from her Mom, she was fed Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin in one ear and Maria Callas from her vocally classically trained, Father. After a quick detour in music to Smashing Pumpkins, Aretha Franklin and Eurythmics, Katie describes her own style of music as having flavors of Tom Petty, Sheryl Crow, Fleetwood Mac and Colbie Caillat. She calls it “Americana meets British Pop”.

Instrumentation

KATIE COLE - Lead Vocals/Guitar
Matt D. Reyes - Bass; Vocals
Brad Lindsay - Guitar and VOX
Nick Bearden - Drums
Paul Redel - Guitar
