Interview with Romantic Warfare

How did you get started in music?

My brother was a very big influence in my life, so when he started a band in high school, I learned to play the bass. Then a couple years later my grandma got sick, and I wanted to learn to play her favorite song (It is Well with My Soul) on the six string.

How long have you been performing professionally?

My junior of senior year of high school is when I really started playing a lot of, I guess that would be about 4 or 5 years now.

Can you describe your music style for us?

It's kind of hard for me to descride, but, I kind of like to describe it as emotional pop with a slight rock edge...on an acoustic guitar.

What are some of your musical influences?

Let's see...I think everyone should have The Beatles, then there's the old school christian bands like DC Talk, Audio A, Newsboys, (maybe even Guardian and Bride). then there's some acoustic stuff like Dashboard Confessional, Shane and Shane, Jason Mraz, and Jack Johnson. Some of my favorites like, The Juliana Theory, House of Heroes, Relient K, Emery, Blindside, Mae, Jars
of Clay, David Crowder...there's so much good music out there!

What inspires you when you write music and lyrics?

I have probably over 60 songs, with a wide range of inspirations. Many of them are inspired by the Word of God, or God himself. There are also several songs inspired by things in my life or in people's lives around me. Then there are a few that were inspired by dreams or visions. The music is most of the time written after the lyrics to fit the content of the songs, but some of the music was written first and just worked well with lyrics that were written later.

What can people expect from a live performance?

Kind of a singer/songwriter kind of a feel. I like to explain my songs, and talk about how they were inspired. And when I sing I really get into the songs, so, I guess you can expect me to sing with a lot of emotion.

What will someone walk away with after hearing a concert you perform?

I hope that they will desire more of the Love of the Lord, or at least that they would think about it.

What can you tell us about your current project?

Well, right now, I am kind of taking it easy, because I'll be getting married soon...but, I recorded a new song not too long ago, which is only available on myspace. I do plan on recording another cd, and I have worked on some other merchandise, such as t-shirts and buttons...when things settle down after the wedding, I will start getting back to work on all of that.

What is your opinion of the current state of the music industry?

Hmmm...well, I think there is a lot of garbage music out there, with trashy and uninspiring, meaningless lyrics. on the other hand I think there are alot of good bands out there, and I believe that God is going to do a lot in the Christian music industry..and I would love to be a part of it, if that is what God wants for me.
