Carvella Q&A

Your name:
Danny Hughes.

Where are you from?
We are based in Leeds, England.

Name of band:

Who is in your band?
Tom Pritchard- Vocals/Guitar
Danny Hughes- Lead Guitar/Vocals
George Thomas- Drums
Nick Shedlon- Bass guitar

How would you describe yourselves?
We are a four piece rock and roll band. Four good friends who share a love of music and most importantly making music that we can put our name to. We have a fast growing fan base and we seem to be getting plenty of interest in what we're doing at the minute. We all want to achieve big things as a band and we have no doubt we can do it, its a matter of time. 

Who are your main influences musically?
We all have a wide range of musical influences. All of us see different things in music but when we bring them together thats where our sound comes from. Our obvious influences are British Guitar bands like the Stones, Oasis, The Roses, Arctic Monkeys etc... But I think what influences us the most are bands that achieve greatness, bands who become timeless in their own right. Everyone always seems to be on the look out for "the next big thing". Thats what inspires us, a band that grabs peoples' attention and makes a difference to how people feel about their own life. Thats what we want to do.  

What do you hope to achieve in music?
Greatness. Simple as that. We want to be "the next big band", we want to fill stadiums and arenas with people singing their hearts out to our songs. We have the ability to do that and its just a matter of time for us to start turning heads. We just feel that if you aim for the top and don't settle for anything less then eventually, you will get where you want to be. 

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Its all been a highlight. Just getting together and making music on a regular basis is what we're all about and what we live for. We've played some great venues and supported some really good bands, but we're just getting started. We recently recorded some demos with Alan Smyth in at 2fly studios in Sheffield. He produced the Arctic Monkeys first album and has also worked with some big names like Reverend and the Makers, RIchard Hawley and Pulp. So that was pretty cool and we were really happy with the outcome. 

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Nothing yet. There may have been a few early gigs or recording that didn't go as well as expected but its all part of the ride and all the mistakes you make on the way have made us who we are as a band. We've still got loads more to learn and we're very excited about what lies ahead for us, as there are definitely exciting times ahead. 

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Well we would have to pick our latest release "Shoot The Moon". Its a demo for people to get an idea of what we're all about, but its the only thing we've got out there at the minute so it makes sense to say that one. 

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?
Just to keep an eye out for us. We have a gig coming up at The Cockpit on Wednesday 16th April supporting a band from Dublin called Raglans. They have been signed to Sony records and have just had their first single released on Radio 1, so that should be a good gig. 
We will be launching our website over the next couple of weeks, as well as releasing a music video and theres plenty more songs to be released as well. So follow us on Twitter, Like us on Facebook and just watch out, as we have a very big summer ahead.
