I began writing poetry at a young age which eventually progressed into writing actual songs as a way to express myself creatively. It became a necessary outlet in order for me to understand and process certain thoughts and emotions I was feeling or going threw at any given time in my life. The good, bad and the ugly. It became therapeutic in a sense. Music allowed me to lose myself and find myself at the same time.
Their journey brings together people who want to escape the clutches of reality. To return to a place where you are never judged and only understood. Their commitment to their fans is one they treasure deeply, for Homerik is not just a band but a message for others to live life as full as they possibly can. To be “Homeric” is to be epic; the way life should be.
It’s very hard sometimes to maintain balance in my life with music. I go through spells where it feels like rock bottom, but you got to keep your head as high as you can. It’s like riding a bike, walking down the street, or running… if you fall, you get back up, dust off and keep on going.
I write on my own, just me, my piano, pencil and paper. Once songs are completed, I rehearse with my musicians to finalize the arrangements and put everything together – then it’s into the studio to record. I do tend to change things in the studio too though, and although I am always very clear on what I want to achieve and I am very open to changing things last minute – I think it’s a jazz thing!
Promising not to disappoint any of their older fans or new ones to come, The California Indie band Muk has come back after years of lying low. The band is dividing up the work and starting to conquer the challenges once again with a more powerful and dynamic energy.
Now with the mix of our newer generation musicians they three have brought up a fresh vision with their own set of influences. Not only musical influences, but also their way of thinking and seeing life as a whole. You can’t imagine how these differences enrich us as an indie band, seeing our ideas in a wider spectrum from each of our members perspective, and then consolidating them as a whole.
Today is History and Tomorrow is a Mystery. This next year I am looking forward to making a name for myself in a very tough Industry. Making music is not for everyone, you have to be passionate about it. Music Industry doesn’t care about how good you are, you can still fail if you don’t have a clear goal and determination to become a persistent creator.
