from St. Charles, Missouri, Greenwheel is ready to hit it big.
With their debut single 'Shelter' rocking the Spiderman soundtrack,
and major label debut, Soma
Holiday, finally in stores, the sky is definitely the
limit for these rockers. Ryan was nice enough to give me a call
while on his way to a gig in Harrisburgh, PA and nice enough to
call back after we got disconnected. We talked about the origin
of the band, becoming famous, and even whoring themselves across
1. What is it like finally having Soma
Holiday in stores? Why was it delayed from its original
2. How was "Shelter" picked as the first single over
stronger songs like "Breathe"?
3. Is there a set writing process that you guys follow?
4. How did Greenwheel come together?
5. Are you in it for the music, or the perks like Kid Rock talks
about (money & girls)?
6. Is it tough to hold onto relationships while on the road?
7. Whats it like to hear yourselves on the road?
9. Do you have a favorite song from Soma
Holiday? Do you usually stick to the same setlist each time
you play? Since you recorded the album, are there aything you would
go back and change?
8. Have you been able to check out the acoustic session you guys
did on GetMusic.com?
10. What are
your thoughts abuot digital music and file swapping technologies?
Do you think the record companies used the trading of MP3s as
an excuse for while sales are down or was it just a lot of crap
11. Who have been your main influences?
12. If you could put together an all-star band with anyone living
or dead, who would be in it?
13. Any plans to come back tp Philadelphia anytime soon, since
your last visit with Flickerstick
14. Have people start to recognize you guys yet? Do you remember
the first autograph that you gave?
15. Do you always know where your bandmates are on stage?
16. Have you gotten a strong response from fans and how can the
fans continue to suppurt Greenwheel?
I want to thank Ryan and everyone at the Island Def Jam for hooking
this up. Hopefully the guys in Greenwheel can make their way to
Philly soon, as Philly loves the Rock 'n' Roll music. Keep an
eye on Greenwheel, we didn't name them as an artist
to watch for nothin. Check out to see if Greenwheel
is playing in your area!
