Interview: Robert Wagner of High Moonlight

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

Yes, really the competition in the musical environment is very difficult. To promote our music we are investing a lot in better recordings and dissemination on streaming platforms. It is also important to find good partners to be able to further expand the horizons of our career and a good press office is very important for this purpose.

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

That we are there to play the highest and best possible independently of having two people or a thousand people because our energy will be the same.

3. What is your dream tour or festival?

It would tour the world’s biggest heavy music festivals alongside bands like Judas, Manowar, Megadeth, Accept and AC / DC. I would love to play alongside Dio as well, but unfortunately, that will not be possible anymore.

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

With Tony Iommi and Eric Adams. I’d love to record something with these two sacred metal monsters.

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

No doubt there are bands like AC / DC, Manowar and Judas priest. These guys know how to make a real rock show even though the age of the musicians of each of these bands is a bit advanced.

6. Who are some of your biggest influences?

My main musical influences are bands like Black Sabbath, AC / DC, Megadeth, Rainbow and Dio.

I really like guitarists with Ritchie Blackmore, Jason Becker, Ross the Boss and Tony Iommi.

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

Music has always been present in my life from an early age. My mother listened to a lot of rock ’60s and’ 70s and it was from there that I came into contact with this heavier music style. I started to study music early, around my 14 years of age, I started playing guitar so I soon went on to the electric guitar and I did not stop. I do not know exactly what I would do if I had not followed the music. Maybe I tried the luck in the sports area but I’m not sure if it would go very far. I honestly do not see myself away from the music completely, even though I was an attendant of some store I would certainly have some involvement with the music scene as well.

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

We will be part of another official compilation this year that will be released on the Roadie Metal label on various streaming platforms. Soon after we will have an EP released in the same format and by the same musical label later this year as well. In the other is only what I can advance for now, other news I still can not speak because there are still some details to be able to state about, but I can say that with each passing day our music has reached as many people as possible and it only motivates us more and more.

Keep up with Robert’s group through their SoundCloud, YouTube, and Facebook.
