Where are you from?
West Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA.
Name of band:
The Conniption Fits.
Who else is in your band?
Shawn Snyder (Drums) and Jamie Hosley (Bass).
How would you describe yourselves?
Upbeat modern rock with a pop edge.
Who are your main influences musically?
Anything from Dr Dre to Foo Fighters. I love alternative rock with massive pop hooks that manages to avoid the same old chord progressions you’ve heard 1000’s of times.
What do you hope to achieve in music?
Worldwide domination. Seriously though, we are pretty happy doing what we are doing, making a living and having fun.
What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
We opened for the Goo Goo dolls in Idaho. We killed it and were so swamped with fans they missed the Goo Goo Dolls concert to talk with us and have us sign stuff.
And what’s the moment you want to forget?
So many. Every time I can’t remember a lyric or badly mess up a part. Good thing is, I’m pretty good at forgetting the negative stuff.
If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
I’d pick “The Call”. It has the rock and pop elements that we love and is probably smack dab in the middle of what we do. But I also want you to listen to the single that is doing very well for us, “I Need You (Ay-O)”.
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 really a live act. We aim to entertain with tons of energy and a touch of humor. See us live if you can! Tour at conniptionfits.com
