Interview with Proud Honey
written by Keira Murray
Clyde 1’s Jim Gellatly catches up with Proud Honey after their performance at the Ignition Finale at the Old Fruitmarket.
How did you get involved with YRock?
Euan: We played at Summer Nights Festival at King Tuts and at that we got approached to play here tonight.
Is it early days for the band?
Euan: We’ve been together just over a year now. We rehearse 4-5 nights a week and any free time we do have is focused on the band and we’ve got our own studio now so that’s where we mostly are.
Mark: It all started off a bit like DIY to get our demo out there and the focus was on getting more established. We were recording demos to pass to a promoter and not for radio distribution as we wanted to be well established.
Where do you see yourselves in a few months' time?
Euan: With a fully fledged EP and to get that out to as many people as we possibly can.
Oski: We recently got a manager so just now we’re looking at music video ideas.
Where else would you like to play?
Euan: We didn’t actually know that the Old Fruitmarket did gigs so I was delighted that we have actually played here. The obvious places we would like to play though are Barrowlands, SECC and the Hydro when it opens. The only way is up as they say!
