An Evening With PhaseOne

An Evening With PhaseOne

The first thing to understand about Graeme Duffy, aka PhaseOne, is that he’s not your normal run-of-the-mill computer music making producer.  Sure, he’s trained in other instruments (guitar, piano, and drums), but his musical influences run much deeper than that.

Expressing Emotions Through Music: Intriguing Interview with Civil Youth 8/23 at The Marquis

Expressing Emotions Through Music: Intriguing Interview with Civil Youth 8/23 at The Marquis

Interview with Civil Youth

Michael- vocals

Evan- Drums

Daniel- Guitar

Q: How did you meet and form the band?

A: (Mike) I started the band in Boston and knew Daniel from high school and other projects. When I came back from Boston to live in Philly, I wanted and knew Dan, he slays it. So I said, “Dan be my man”. At first he said no I hate you but I convinced him.

Evan came a bit later, he produced the second record and when our drummer left, Evan knew all the material and he’s a brother so I asked him to be in the band.

 

Q: So it’s been a little over a year since the band first started touring in March 2015. How would you say the experience has been for you all to be able to travel the US with your music?

A: (Mike) it’s definitely been cool, experiencing all the different weather changes has made me a paranoid monster, I can’t drive without having an anxiety attack (laugs)

(Dan) it’s really cool to get the chance to visit different scenes and not only get to play with all these bands in the scene) but to able to experience the different scenes, cultures and towns. It’s been a humbling experience to be able to stay away from the area that I grew up in and actually see the country that we live in.

 

Q: Music will often times stem from a history. Your bio states that some of your work has stemmed from a history of anxiety and/ or depression. What is your advice for CO Culture readers who may be battling with these diseases?

A: (Mike) find something that you are passionate about because through that passion you find yourself. I specifically tend to gravitate towards the arts but it doesn’t need to be the arts, it could be construction it doesn’t matter as long as you are passionate about it, I think you will be able to find yourself.

 (Dan) I also refer to the arts to get through difficult times in my life. One thing that I always realize when I get up on stage and play, it’s a giant stress reliever for me and

(Evan) We sit in a car together for 10 hours a day, so we all have the same train of thought on a lot of different things. I really agree, I think the biggest thing is being true to who you want to be. You do have find yourself. Don’t let people tell you that you shouldn’t do what you want to do

 

Q: What would you say your favorite part of your job is?

A: (mike) I like performing and creating music, being creative.

(Evan) this whole past summer we’ve been writing a new record and I was all about that. Its fun to be in such an awesome creative setting.

(Dan) for me its most definitely the shows, it can be tough and stressful sometimes.

 

Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

A: (Evan) South America

(Dan) the UK

(Mike) the islands

 

Q: What has been the most memorable/ enjoyable performance you’ve played?

A: (Mike) Our Danger Danger tour in March

(Dan) Pop’s in St. Louis. It was so cool because everyone was chanting our lyrics with us, it was surreal.

(Evan) When we opened for AWOLNATION and twenty one pilots in Camden, NJ. There was also a show in Utah were I had injured my leg so going to the hospital from the stage perfectly shows a spectrum of highs and lows (laughs)

 

Q: If you could hang out with any musical influence dead or alive, who would it be?

A: (Mike) Jared Leto

(Evan) George Harrison from The Beatles

(Dan) Simon Neil is my spirit animal

 

Q: If you could describe your musical genre or style in 3 words, which would you choose?

A: (Mike) Eccentric

(Dan) wet

 

(Evan) …confusing
