Introducing: Waiting for Wednesday
Sweet and husky female duo in folk tradition with a country twang – from West Yorkshire…
YOUR NAME: Laura and Anna
BAND NAME: Waiting For Wednesday
WHAT DO YOU DO/PLAY?: Both vocals, Laura guitar too.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TOGETHER AS A BAND/PLAYING MUSIC?: 7 Years
GIVE US THREE REASONS WHY WE SHOULD TRACK DOWN, LISTEN AND DISCOVER YOUR MUSIC?
Because you may just like it, love it and want to buy it. No seriously, because it’s heartfelt, it’s real and it’s relatable.
WHERE DO YOU SOUND BEST – FESTIVAL, CLUB, BEDROOM – OR SOMEWHERE ELSE?
Laura’s dining room, after a few beers.
“Nice and shiny”
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST…
RECORD? Nirvana, Nevermind
CD? It was a cassette and it was Now 20.
DOWNLOAD? Can’t actually remember but something banging no doubt :).
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 capo and plectrum made out of diamonds and gold – nice and shiny so that Laura doesn’t lose them… again.
“Voice is gorgeous”
PLEASE CITE SOME INTER-BAND MUSICAL DIFFERENCES…
Not many really. Except Anna is a pretty good rapper and Laura is whiter than milk.
WHO ARE YORKSHIRE’S FINEST IN CULTURE, SPORT AND MUSIC?
Sea Whores from Leeds are great and Hayley Gaftarnick’s voice is gorgeous.
NAME YOUR SUPERGROUP – WHO’S PLAYING WHAT AND WHO’S ON VOCALS?
Brandi Carlisle – Lead Vocals. Leah Shapiro (BRMC) – Drums. Bonnie Raitt – Lead/Slide Guitar and Natalie Maines of Dixie Chicks on bass.
