Interview: Dawson Kolstad from Good Friday

#1: Competition is rough in the music industry, what is your band doing to grow and continue to reach for success?

We are constantly touring and promoting our music as well as just the band as a whole. That’s what we do for a living now, so we’ve got plenty of opportunities to promote our music to many different groups of people.

#2: If someone goes to one of your concerts, what do you think they should know going in?

We’re very passionate about the messages we are spreading through our music, so to us, lyrics are extremely important, so if people pay attention to the lyrics of our songs, they will get much more out of the experience.

#3: What is your dream tour or festival?

Probably just one of those huge alternative music festivals because then we’d get to perform alongside super different bands, providing lots of variety.

#4: If you could collaborate with any musician, who would you choose?

Twenty One Pilots would probably be quite an interesting collaboration because our music is lyrically similar without even meaning to be, but musically different, so it’d make for an interesting studio session.

#5: Out of every concert you have been to, who are the best live bands?

U2 is great, so are the Foo Fighters, Coldplay, big bands like that have great shows.

#6: Who are some of your biggest influences?

The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, U2, The Police, Coldplay, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Panic! at the Disco, Twenty One Pilots, Michael Jackson, Mumford and Sons, etc.

#7: When did you first start playing music and how did that come together to lead you to where you are today?

We started playing music in 2008, but formed as Good Friday in 2015 and have gradually gotten to the point where we now do music full time!

#8: What are your plans for the rest of the year for the band?

To continue touring and promoting our most recent, self-titled album Good Friday!

Check out Good Friday. Special thanks to Dawson’s time and Rogue PR for setting up the interview.
