l'altra : l'autre chicago
What's the musical background of you 4 ?
Eben: i've been playing music since I was about 9-10 years old. I played in school bands and stuff at first, but I got into guitars and drums when i turned 13. my dad played guitar so there were always a bunch of them floating around the house. I think when I first saw MTV and saw how cool that stuff was I was hooked. not that MTV is cool. it is not.
Ken: I've sang since I was 8 or 9 in school. Toured Europe singing when I was 18 even with my school choir and was in various musicals in high school. I didn't start playing bass until around age 20 or 21 I think. It's kind of strange for me, cause I have the most vocal training of anyone in L'altra but I don't do any of the singing in the group. I might sing a little on the new record. Joe and Lindsay have both played their instruments for a while. Lindsay is classically trained on piano, and Joe has played guitar forever, actually had a band in high school with members of Joan of Arc and 33.3 if you can believe that. Ya, they all went to school together..
What would it have been if it had not been music ?
Eben: impossible to answer that question. being myself only, I have no idea what it would be like to not be myself.
Ken: something outdoors in nature.
all of you have other activities apart from l'altra,
Ken with the label, Eben with another band, Joe studying
arts and Lindsay with webdesign. Is it important to keep
some sort of balance, not to be too deeply involved in the
music, or the other jobs are just for personal finance ?
Eben: I would love to eat, sleep, breathe music every day for the rest of my life. but I need a job so I can eat and have a place to sleep. someday I'm hoping that music becomes that job. Other things are important besides music, though, without a doubt. reading.
Ken: I'm not sure I see what you're asking here. Yes, I'm very busy with Aesthetics. It's hard for anyone to do alot of things at once, there are only so many hours in a day.
