INTERVIEW: Canadian country-rock group, Me and Mae

1. Hi folks, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

Great and thank you for having us! We’ve been very busy promoting new single and gearing up for upcoming shows!

2. Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Where The Good Times Roll”?

We are certainly excited by the initial reaction to the song! We entered the Canadian country charts soon after release and the video is being very well received!

3. Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

Yes! In fact, we had done a show in California  at the NAMM trade convention. Riding the wave of that performance, suddenly I started to hear the melodies in my head and shared them with my co-writer Ben Parker. With California’s Palm trees , beautiful beaches and glorious sunsets, We knew we were where the good times roll!

4. How was the filming process and experience behind the video?

It came together quite well actually. We basically decided to throw a 2 day party at our headquarters and captured it on video.

5. How was the recording and writing process?

Although the song was written quite quickly, the recording process took longer. We did several versions of the song before we were finally happy with the end result.

6. What role does Canada play in your music?

Canada is our home and we are very proud and honored to be loyal Canadians. I think you can hear the influence of the people and experiences in our music. Let’s face it, I think most people would agree that Canada is Where The Good Times Roll!!

7. How Zac Brown Band and The Eagles has influence your writing?

I just feel those 2 artists set the bar high and we strive to write and perform at thier level. How can any country rock band not be influenced by those great, inspirational artists?

8. How do you go on balancing your Roots and Rock influences?

Really don’t think about this much. I think it’s just a natural thing that happens. We’re heavily influenced by both old school roots music and all forms of rock and pop.

9. Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?

Yes! We are working on releasing a collection of 3-5 songs very soon!

10. Any tentative release date or title in mind?

No exact date yet but we will announce soon.

11. Any plans to hit the road?

Yes, you can find our upcoming tour dates at www.meandmae.com

12. What else is happening next in Me and Mae’s world?

We are balancing being in the studio finishing new material and doing what we love most, hitting the road and playing live!!

You can watch the official music video here. The single is streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and Google Music.
