The MusicManiac Finds Out
Q: Do you follow a process or ritual before a performance to get rid of nerves or performance anxiety?
A: “Before each show we get the munchies and eat a whole bag of Chex Mix, have a nice cold beer, and maybe run the set all the way through in the green room. Vocal warm ups start in the van on the way to the show. We still get nerves before any show but they feel good, it wakes us up and gets the blood flowing. Honestly, the smaller shows are more nerve racking because its more intimate and people are really tuning in and listening as to the bigger show we’re the energy is so high that you could do anything and people are stoked lol” – Harold
Q: What’s the best piece of advice another musician ever gave you?
A: “R.I.F.F. (Remember It’s For Fun) it should be authentic and from the heart and try to not think to hard about it. Just make good music that you’d want to listen to.” – Harold
Q: Are there any musicians who inspire you? What qualities do you admire about them?
A: “Jimi Hendrix, of course. He really lit the fire In me to start playing guitar. He’s just one of the greatest guitar players of all time. Simple as that.” – Harold
A: “And the Raconteurs songwriting really inspired ours, anything Jack White and Brendan Benson does is awesome.” – Justin
Q: Does the band have any hobbies or interests outside of music?
A: “Yeah, I really enjoy snowboarding. I just got into it about 3 years ago and fell in love with it immediately. I’ve tried skateboarding and surfing, which I enjoy doing both of those still but snowboarding just felt right. Plus, when you fall it doesn’t hurt as much lol” – Justin
Q: If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
A: “Ok, I have two answers for you on this one. If we are talking legendary bands I would say Foo Fighters. They have always been an inspiration for me. Plus, Taylor & Dave are my top two favorite drummers. And if we are talking about bands in our scene I would have to say Enumclaw, I saw them earlier this year in Bellingham and they rock.” – Justin
Q: Tell us about both your backgrounds if you would. And how did you guys end up coming together to start Sour Fuzz?
A: “We’ve been friends since high school (class of 2014). Back then we would just skateboard, go to parties and jam in the garage. We have been playing music together for about 10 years now in different bands and about 2 years ago (Nov of 2021) we formed Sour Fuzz and started writing songs as a 2 piece. You cant go wrong with just Drums and Guitar, so many of our favorite bands are 2 pieces (The Blue Stones, Reignwolf, The White Stripes, Hockey Dad) so it just felt right to be a duo. Right out the gate we were playing shows in Bellingham and Seattle and making our mark in the rock scene. There are so many amazing bands here in Washington, they made us feel right at home. Once we were comfortable with our sound we finally got in the studio (Starlight Studio in Seattle) in March of 2023 and began our recording process, you can hear our first 2 singles on all streaming platforms (Wide Eyed – How Does It Feel?) And we have more on the way, stay tuned! Our name Sour Fuzz is just to best describe the sound we are going for. Just a gritty fuzzy tone and breakdowns that make your face scrunch up like when you eat something Sour.”
