1) Three Words To Describe You Two
Evan & Travis:Yin and Yang
2) Dream collaboration? Who would it be? Locally and internationally?
Evan & Travis: Locally – Ryan Murgatroyd, Mkly, Avi Subban. International – Stan Kolev, Maksim Dark, Kalil.
3) Passion vs. Pushing The Brand? How do you guys find the balance with it?
Evan & Travis: We mostly just follow our passion and the pushing the brand falls into place. We have very high standards when it comes to pushing our content which can sometimes lead to inconsistencies in posting on our socials but the content we do put out speaks for itself. We think it’s important to remain true to your identity and to always align yourself with brands and events that suit that. Passion first, brand second. It’s far more important to us to be genuine than the most popular on social media.
4) Advice for up n comers?
Evan & Travis: Respect your craft, remain humble and always be considerate of your set time. Also get your hours in, practice as much as you can, when you can and work on your craft, even if its just digging for new music. The more effort you put in the more you get out.
5) What can we expect in the weeks to come?
Evan & Travis: We have our sights set on CT in the new year and will be paying a visit in early Feb! Keep your eyes peeled.
