7 of 7 Q&A

Your name:
Craig McCormack.

Where are you from?
Glasgow, Scotland.

Name of band:
7 of 7.

Who is in your band?
Craig McCormack - Guitar
Stephen Dowling - Guitar/backing vocals
Stephen McGuinness - Bass/backing vocals
Gary Donlin - Synth/backing vocals
Anton McAulay - Drums
Sean O'Neil - Lead Vocals

How would you describe yourselves?
Progressive/alternative rock.

Who are your main influences musically?
We have a very wide variety in taste of music within the band which ranges from classical all the way to bands like Mastodon and Killswitch Engage. However, I would say the bands that influence the music we create the most would be Tool, Dream Theater, Alterbridge and Pink Floyd.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
We would all love to become a professional recording/ touring band. 

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
A while back we supported Australian band Karnivool at King Tuts in Glasgow. The place was packed and the audience really seemed to enjoy the set we played for them. It was brilliant to be asked to support such a popular band from Australia.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
We were asked to play a show at a local pub in Glasgow, when we turned up to play the gig we were told they wanted an 80s cover band for two hours. They didn't tell us this previous to our arrival and to make things worse the owner was drunk. It was a complete farce, we've never been back haha.

If you could choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
I would choose Barbara Bush because it shows off everything we are as a band. Its heavy, catchy, progressive and melodic, just a completely in your face song!

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?
