Home / Music / Artist Interviews / INTERVIEW: JJ McGuigan


How would you classify your music?

Please type all responses in Blue. Answer as a band or spokesman for the band.

Very emotionally driven and a softer rock sound, especially on this project.  I have another project coming up with a heavier sound.

Who are some of your top 5 musical influences?

My main influences include bands like Staind, Cold, Creed, Live, and Disturbed.

What do you want fans to take from your music?

Something personal, a connection to the music that is at a deep level.

How’s the music scene in your locale?

Very good musicians are in my area.  Unfortunately the venues do not call for musicians to play their original songs.

What is the best concert you have been to? What do you like most about playing live?

The best concert I attended was Fuel.  I like the connection you get with the crowd from playing live shows.

Is there a song on your latest CD release here that stands out as your personal favorite, and why?

I would say Letter does.  To me it just covers a wide range of emotions and experiences that I think a lot of people could relate to.

How have you evolved as an artist over the last year?

I am more prolific in my writing and more disciplined in practice time and being creative.

If you could meet, play a gig, co-write a song, have dinner, have a drink with any band or artist (dead or alive) who would it be?

It would be with the band Live.  They influenced me so much not just in music but my spiritual life as well I would love to meet and spend time with them.

What’s next for you?  

In the process of making a new EP then after that we are going to play more live shows and try to set up a tour.
