Bryan McPherson is an impressive artist. He is a singer-songwriter who combines folk, punk, and even some alternative flavor into songs that inspire and hopefully provoke conversation. After speaking with him recently, it is clear he has some great stories to tell. You can check out our interview here, and be sure to check him out on Facebook.
Ashland is a four piece alternative/pop band from central Illinois. They create music that is both haunting and aggressive, yet catchy and upbeat at the same time. Lead vocalist, Asia Woodward has a voice that is both beautiful and dark, one that just stays with you. Check out our fun interview with the band here, and give them some love on Facebook.
Blues rocker/singer-songwriter Meghann Wright is making her inaugural run on the Vans Warped Tour this summer. She is playing her set in the "acoustic basement" area all summer long, and hers is a set you won't want to miss. She brings a very chill, deep and easily relatable vibe to her music. Meghann took a moment out of her busy opening day of Warped Tour to talk with us about her music as well as causes near and dear to her heart.
We rounded out our first batch of Warped Tour interviews with none other than MOD SUN. There's nothing better than doing an interview with an artist who embodies the true spirit of the tour or event they are on. Warped Tour has always been the best time in summer that a music fan could have, and just two minutes on the phone with MOD SUN and it was clear that "fun" was definitely the name of the game. Whatever you do, don't pass on his set on Warped Tour. He is a party waiting to happen.
One of our favorite Warped bands from two years ago have returned to punk rock summer camp this year. New Beat Fund is too much fun, and Shelby took a moment to chat with us just before the start of the tour. Be sure to catch their set on Warped tour this summer in your city!
We are kicking off our coverage of the 2015 Vans Warped Tour with some artist interviews, beginning with this year's catering band.... 3PM. This pop-punk trio has gained a lot of attention this past year, and they are definitely going to be gaining even more fans on the road this summer.
Kaitlyn Dias is a young, very talented actress that we had the pleasure of speaking with recently. She is a relative newcomer to voice acting, but her debut character is one that will leave a definite impression with moviegoers everywhere.....and leave us reaching for far too many tissues.
Kaitlyn is voicing the main character of Riley in Disney/PIXAR'S new movie, 'Inside Out' which hits theaters on June 19, 2015. Check out our interview with Kaitlyn here, and be sure to keep your eyes and ears open for what is sure to be more memorable performances from this talented actress.
Veteran voice actress Lori Alan has provided audiences with some of the most memorable character voices of our time. If you were a fan of Diane Simmons from Family Guy (RIP), or the delightful Pearl The Whale from Spongebob Squarepants then you have been a fan of Lori Alan.
Lori is lending her voice to Disney/PIXAR's new movie, 'Inside Out' which premieres on June 19, 2015. In our interview Lori gives us some great insight into the story that drives this heartwarming movie.
When we last spoke with acclaimed producer/director M. Night Shyamalan about FOX's fascinating new series 'Wayward Pines,' it was just prior to the premiere episode and we already knew there was going to be a major reveal coming for episode five. Now that "The Truth" episode has aired, M. Night was gracious enough to sit down and talk with the press again about the ramifications of this big reveal and what's to come in the upcoming episodes....or at least what he was able to talk about. As always, it was a great chat with Mr. Shyamalan, and fans of the series will want to hear every word.
* To clarify, this was a conference call interview with several members of the media on the line from different media outlets. Our two questions were asked nearer to the end of the call beginning at 21:25. Thank you to the other press members for their insightful questions.
Controversial. The self-proclaimed "King of negativity." These are words used to describe goth/alternative rocker, Justin Symbol. After speaking with him some other words came to mind; Positive, pleasant and unapologetic for being who he is. You won't find a lot of information about Justin or his current project from mere Google searches, but he took some time to talk openly with On Request about life before and leading up to their first record, 'VOIDHEAD' and it turned out to be a very good conversation. Justin Symbol fans won't want to miss this one.
