Corner Pilots Q&A

Your name: 
Jake France.

Where are you from?
Surrey, England.

Name of band: 
Corner Pilots.

Who else is in your band?
Dan Stafford - Vocals
Josh Bennett - Guitar
Ben Mawdsley - Bass
Reece O'Brien - Drums

How would you describe yourselves and your music?
We are an young alternative guitar band who's music is built on bluesy fuzz driven riffs, thundering drums and catchy lyrics. 

Who are your main influences musically?
Arctic Monkeys, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The White Stripes, Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
We would like to see ourselves making a living within the music industry. We want to be playing the best venues with as big a crowd as possible.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Playing Barfly was special. It is such a prestigious venue and somewhere we have watched many a great band.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
To be honest there aren't really any. Being in a band is such a fun experience, as long as you are playing shows and writing new tunes there isn't anything to complain about. Maybe a couple of the early tunes can be forgotten. I wont tell you what they are just in case they are lingering on the internet somewhere.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Our latest single "Jump" represents us really well. It's a slow but upbeat song with a huge chorus. It's one that the crowds love when we play live and has had quite a good reception from people in general so far. It's out on iTunes and Spotify at the moment.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?
