Who’s Ready Access? How you guys all met and started this band?
Lane: We actually started out just me and Beau as an acoustic project.. but decided that wasn’t gonna cut it, so we hooked up with brett and sean through some friends back home and started jamming. When Beau and I moved to Nashville, we met Joey. It’s actually kind of funny because Joey, Sean, and Brett all came from metal backgrounds playing in several different metal bands and that, merged with Beau and I’s sound has made who we are today.
What’s the story behind the band’s name?
Beau: Well we couldn’t ever find a name that fit well. So one night Lane and I were going to McDonalds and on the sliding glass window there is a little sign that said “Ready Access”. We both looked at each other and said “F*&k Yeah that’s the name!”
What are your music influences?
Foo Fighters, Four Year Strong, Circa Survive, Anberlin, Brand New, Name Taken, Saosin, William Hung ya know, all the greats really.
What has been the CONs and PROs of being a new band in today’s music scene?
One con would have to be the amount of talented bands out there all fighting for the same thing so its hard to stand out and really get the recognition you need to get a big fan base.
The Pros would have to be that ladies like dudes in bands! Also, we just love to play music so being able to play anywhere, anytime and have new experiences each time is awesome.
So I got understood you guys are working on a new demo. Can you give us some insights about it? Any release date, title in mind?
We are digging into some more real lyrical content, a little bit edgier than we are used to, not so much of the party, get wasted type stuff but there will still be a place for fun party songs in our music. We still like to f**k s**t up. The demo has taken a lot longer than we had hoped, and we have put so much work in to it. But hard work is what it takes to get in bed with the ladies! We are shooting for some time in September for the release. We don’t have and exact date yet. Title name is “Ready or Not”, because we are all big fans of hide and seek. We started our own league, and were undefeated!
What has been the funniest moment you have been or took part while touring?
A) one time we got Joey wasted and talked him in to “Romancing” with some of the bigger girls!!! Needless to say.. We try to have as much fun as possible and not to take ourselves too seriously!
Are there any more plans for the future we should be aware of?
We are relocating all to Louisville, KY in October and once we’re all together we really just plan on playing an insane amount of shows to get our name out there and get people to join the Ready Access party.
What’s your method at the time of writing a song?
Songs normally start with an acoustic guitar riff and we sort of just bounce ideas off each other and build the song from the ground up.
Where can we found more about your music?
One day we hope to be all fancy with a .com but for now we have a Facebook page and a Reverbnation page that you can find all our music on and free downloads on our soundcloud!
Do you feel you are moving on the right direction?
Absolutely! As long as our fan base continues to grow and we continue to make music we love then we feel we’re headed in the right direction!
