Last Kick Q&A

Your name:
Steve MacLeod.

Where are you from?
Halifax, Nova Scotia - Canada.

Name of band:
Last Kick.

Who is in your band?
Steve Poole - vocals and rhythm guitar
Andrew Arsenault - bass and backing vocals
Kevin White - drums and backing vocals
myself - lead guitar.

How would you describe yourselves?
A down tuned and dirty, blues based and metal edged hard rock band.

Who are your main influences musically?
I like many different styles of music (classical, blues, jazz, folk etc.) but 80-90% of the time I'll be listening to some type of metal. My first and most important influence was my dad, who has been a very talented multi-instrumentalist since long before I was born.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
Like all things in life I just want to constantly learn and improve and enjoy what I'm doing.
We are not a touring band so local success is what we are looking for as a band. Any online success is great too.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
We are all veteran musicians but the band Last Kick is new this year so there is not much to say yet. For me it has been, since promoting this band online, discovering the amazing indie scene that's out there. So many awesome bands as well as folks like yourself, online DJ's and radio stations, promoters etc. creating a really great supportive environment.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Nothing really. If I had to pick one thing maybe spending to much time with a previous band mate whose head was just not in to it. Great person and musician but he just did not put enough effort in to the band and it started to hold us back. He went on to another band and we replaced him with someone we do not have that issue with at all.

If you had to choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
I'll say Monster, but it is hard to just pick one. The first three songs we put out there each kind of have their own sound stylistically. We will improve as we grow together as a band so who knows where the music will take us.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say that I forgot to ask?

No, thank you for your time and support of indie artists.
