POCKET CHANGE with FILLER
Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
The band first got together in Cleveland, Ohio which is our home base for most of our shows and songwriting. However, at the moment, we are in 4 different states, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and California, where we all go to college. The distance makes our songwriting process tricky and forces us to be creative in the way we collaborate.
Who has been your greatest influence?
Which each member bringing a unique musical background, Filler has many different influences. As far as our sound goes, bands such as Wallows and Tame Impala have been an inspiration for many of our musical themes. More recently a group that influences us heavily in terms of content style and goals is Vulfpeck.
What is your latest and greatest?
Back in July, we released our latest single, “Pocket Change”, which is an upbeat summer indie tune with its dance-along bassline. The soaring vocal lines and emotional lyrics make the melodies memorable.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
We are itching to get back on stage. It has been a long few months without being able to perform live for our fans. We were able to participate in some virtual performances since the start of the pandemic which has been a great way to keep the spirit of live music alive.
What would you say to your younger self if you could?
The advice I would give to my younger self is not to get discouraged by the little things. Write down a goal for yourself try your hardest to achieve it.
On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you?
How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success?
I believe there is a certain element of luck, as there is in anything that you engage in. However, I am a strong believer that with a lot of hard work you can achieve your goals. It's about being prepared to take advantage and participate in opportunities when they arise.
How can we stay up to date with you?
