Detroit is pretty incredible. Both in the way people who are not actually here seem to always talk about it and the people who are actually here seem to get sick of talking about it. Music has a long history here and we'd love to learn from it. There's still some pretty great Jazz, Blues, and Rock here. Metal bands seem very alive as do the Juggalos.
There's some resentment toward newcomers or so we hear, but so far most people have been very welcoming to us. We all live on the west side out in the neighborhoods not in the trendy downtown/midtown/Corktown that the NY Times is so in love with. This is where you find most of the hipster/Brooklyn wanna-bes/unemployed artists with means. We are working class musicians with little means so we have to work at a wage earning job while spending all the free time we can on our music.
All in all it's pretty exciting here and we're glad to have made the move though Oregon will always been in our hearts it just costs too much. We can afford to explore the east coast, hopefully tour it from here and maybe even have enough time and money to make a bunch of albums! The plan is to build a studio this year. Wish us luck! As always you can check out stuff from us on youtube and we're on facebook too. Bianka's also on Pinterest
