Q&A: Bear Hands

BearHands

I chatted with Dylan from the band Bear Hands about their music and the challenges of touring.

Q: How did the band form?

Ted and I attended Wesleyan University together. We were experimenting together musically when we met the rest of the band.

 

Q: What is your favorite song that you’ve recorded?

That’s tough. I will say that my favorite to perform is “Bone Digger.” It’s definitely a crowd pleaser!

 

Q: What is the most challenging part of being on the road?

The lack of privacy. You’re in a van for up to eight hours at a time..those drives can be long! My advice would be to bring reading material. ::laughs::

 

Q: Do you think social media helps or hurts the music industry?

I’m sure it’s helped in a lot of ways. For instance, you can communicate with your fans easier. It can be a chore I guess, but you can meet and network with some cool people.

 

Q: What is your favorite part of performing live?

The music. ::laughs:: I generally never listen to our stuff outside of performing it. It’s also a great time to interact with your fans. I love the feeling of being on stage and hearing the drums in my chest.

 

Q: Are you excited about performing this Sunday at DC 101’s Kerfluffle?

We are! I can’t wait to see Blink 182 perform honestly. I heard I’m going to love the venue!
