Everything Zen Q&A

Your name: 
Michael Kumar (guitar and vocals).

Where are you from? 
Stevenage, Hertfordshire.

Name of band: 
Everything Zen.

Who else is in your band?
Lee Warren who plays bass, Ant Pinnell who plays second guitar, and Andrew Bisgrove who plays drums! The band's ages range is between 20 and 26.

How would you describe yourselves?  
Good question, whenever I get asked this I can never tie down our genre. We are closest probably to alternative rock/post-grunge.

Who are your main influences musically? 
It all differentiates between the members. We all have a mutual liking for Silverchair though, and I think any genre of music that sounds good. Lee has fairly punky roots, while Ant and Andrew are the ‘metalheads’ of the band. I also have a small spot for hardcore jazz banjo fusion too lol.

What do you hope to achieve in music?  
To go as far as possible if not the whole way! Open up opportunity, and build up contacts.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?  
Probably being approached by HotVox and opening opportunity in London. I’d say as well, just generally getting a project like this together; it’s literally taken years to tie it down for all of us.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?  
Sound problems with our pedals, leads and amps, which is bound to be standard anyway. However, I would say every bit has been enjoyable and a learning curve all the same.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?  
Keep Calm and Carry On, because that is exactly this bands mentality!

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?  
We are currently in the process of gathering material to record an EP in early 2014.
