Introducing: Eddie Huntley Band
Widescreen FM rock from Sheffield with a blues and soul tinge…
YOUR NAME: Eddie Huntley.
BAND NAME: Eddie Huntley Band.
WHAT DO YOU DO/PLAY? Guitar and Bass.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TOGETHER AS A BAND/PLAYING MUSIC? About 12 months.
GIVE US 3 REASONS WHY WE SHOULD TRACK DOWN, LISTEN AND DISCOVER YOUR MUSIC?
Tracking is a good skill, listening is important, and discovery is fun. The music we do is good to listen to and has that positive energy you get from commercial music without being ‘samey’ track to track. The music is relatable and will make you feel something. We worked fairly hard at it and would like some public approval. I would like to retire at 35.
WHERE DO YOU SOUND BEST – FESTIVAL, CLUB, BEDROOM – OR SOMEWHERE ELSE?
Hard to say. When there’s a responsive audience it feels great no matter where you are playing. It’s also hard to judge what’s coming out the front from the band perspective, though probably when there’s a really good sound guy is the honest answer.
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST?
RECORD? BB King, Jimi Hendrix and Deep Purple.
CD? Eminem, Curtain Call.
DOWNLOAD? Can’t remember.
SO, WHEN IT ALL GOES RIGHT AND YOU’VE GOT A MANSION AND A SUPERMODEL GIRL/BOYFRIEND, WHAT WILL BE YOUR BIGGEST MUSICAL INDULGENCE?
A 20 foot cowbell, a gong and learning to play an instrument properly.
SO, WHEN IT ALL GOES WRONG AND YOU’VE ACRIMONIOUSLY BROKEN UP CITING HUGE MUSICAL DIFFERENCES, WHAT DO YOU FALL BACK ON?
Pondering through the mundanity of life, desperately trying to achieve something meaningful.
CITE SOME INTER-BAND MUSICAL DIFFERENCES…
WHO ARE YORKSHIRE’S FINEST IN CULTURE, SPORT AND MUSIC?
I’ve played with a lot of musicians in Yorkshire and they’re all pretty good. I’ve no idea when it comes to sport. I saw a guy do a double back flip on a trials bike once. I think he was call Mick or Mike. That was cool.
NAME YOUR SUPERGROUP – WHO’S PLAYING WHAT AND WHO’S ON VOCALS?
Deadpool on the kazoo.
GO SEE THIS FILM: A Monster Calls.
GO READ THIS BOOK: Terry Pratchett, Small Gods.
GREAT LOST BAND/ARTIST: Sadly, there are many.
WOULDN’T BE CAUGHT DEAD SUPPORTING: I’m really not that fussy as long as they’re not annoying.
LONDON, L.A OR LEEDS?: I’m not banned from anywhere yet
AND FINALLY… AS YOU LEAVE THE STAGE, WHAT ARE YOUR PARTING WORDS.
No, we’ve turned everything off now.
