Today’s Featured Artist – INTERVIEW – Random Ties

Tell us about:

Your latest single you have released:

We just released our latest single “They Don’t Care”  the song is inspired by the on-going conflict in Palestine & abuse of power in South America. This song means a lot to us because as musicians we are determined to raise the volume on social injustice & abuse of power via our music.

Your first single and how you felt when it was released:

The first single we released was “She’s Something” in June 2020 & we did so when there were so many restrictions due to Covid but we just finished recording 10 songs a few months back & felt we couldn’t wait any longer.

Your favorite song that you have created that is an album track:

Blue Water shooting the video was so fun as well

Your favorite song to play live:

Father Conlon the crowd goes nuts when we play it & the video was a masterpiece created by Daniel over at Shirt & Tie Productions

Your most emotional track:

That would be “Thawra” which was written after the massive explosion on August 4th in Beirut that left 100’s of thousands of people homeless, lives destroyed due to the negligence of a corrupt government.  The song was followed by a very powerful music video by Layal Gebran who took the most authentic on scene clips one could look for. 

The best lyric you have ever written:

“Week 39”  we might have songs that are deeper or more complex but this was written in a few minutes anticipating the birth of my son Liam.

Describe the feeling you get when you walk on stage to do a show:

One word Electrifying 

The hardest track to play live:

Hardest track would be “Why” we released this song during suicide prevention month & it always reminds us of loved ones we lost.  We also wanted our fans to be part of this video by sending us pictures of people they lost & we included them in video to honor their lives.

Essential items you always take on tour with you?

Pictures of our families when we are on the road, carrots as snacks for myself, Tea & chips for Ron while Jack enjoy his 12 pack. Lot of extra clothes as well all love to go for a run whenever we have the time as well and stay as fit as we can.

Describe your fans in three words:

Loud, Energetic & fun

A song by another artist or band you wish you had written:

November Rain what a masterpiece 

What we can look forward to from your band this year:

We will get back in the studio in September to record a few more songs & release them before the end of the year followed with some videos. As things continue to get back to normal get back on the road and play as many shows as we can.
