Who are your favorite musicians?
Chris: My bass heroes are Juan Alderete (Racer X/The Mars Volta), Chris Wolstenholme (Muse), Timmy Commerford (Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave), Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs/The Dead Weather), Jeremy Velardi (Envy On The Coast) and James Jamerson. Recently, I’ve been into a lot of hip-hop and R&B like Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, Dua Lipa, Ariana Grande, Stickfiggas and Shadow Moses.
Bradley: Interesting and progressive bands—Everything Everything, And So I Watch You From Afar and Yes. UK drum and bass was formative for me at university and I love bands like Tom’s Story in the wonderful Manila indie scene.
Paulo: I’m a big fan of John Mayer and Slash. As a kid, I listened to a lot of glam rock bands like Bon Jovi, Mr. Big and White Lion. As I grew up, I added Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Pearl Jam, Bush, Oasis and a lot of 90s alternative bands to my playlist. Nowadays, I mostly listen to instrumental music and blues/rock guys like BB King, SRV, Hendrix, Clapton.
Pam: Rachael Yamagata, Amy Winehouse, Regina Spektor, Alanis Morissette, Fiona Apple, Liz Phair, Alisha’s Attic, Moonpools & Caterpillars, Deap Vally, Aerosmith and, strangely, a lot of show tunes.
