Gliceryn is a four-piece rock band from Seattle. They are the total embodiment of the coffeehouse grunge movement. With nothing but the future in mind, the band has recently spent time in the studio recording their debut EP. Each member comes from a completely different musical background, blending in a cacophony so eloquently edgy you’ll leave with an aneurism. And on that note, here are a few questions I had for the band:
So, tell us about Gliceryn?
We're just four dudes from Seattle, just trying to make something out of nothing.
Who is in the band?
Christian Durden: Vocals/Rhythm Guitar
Devin Johnson: Lead Guitar/Backup Vocals
Andrew Ryan: Drums
George Silver: Bass/Backup Vocals
Who were your "music idols" when you guys were growing up?
Christian Durden: The Used, Sublime, Backstreet Boys
Andrew Ryan: Space Jam soundtrack, Pennywise, Motley Crue
George Silver: Dave Grohl, Devin Townsend, Jerry Garcia
Devin Johnsons:Patrick Watson,Andy Hall,Isaac Brock.
What part of your music career excited you the most right now?
Everything's unknown at the moment. We're just going to work hard and see where this can take us.
What has been your biggest challenge as a band?
Exposure! We've chosen a career path, which is pretty difficult, and with as many other talented artists as there are you have to work really hard to get your name out there, being the fresh face we are.
Would you consider yourself a "boy band" or not?
We are four dudes in a band, but I’m pretty sure by definition we're not a boy band.
How did you come up with the band's name?
We went through a few name changes in the beginning, we chose this one thinking we could just change it later... and it stuck.
Does everyone in Seattle drink Starbucks?
That's racist; well sorta. Everyone does drink coffee up here but whether it’s Starbucks or not remains to be seen
Lets talk about your lyrics... how are you inspired to write?
I write a lot about experiences I’ve gone through in my life that I feel like people can associate with.
Do you guys play Guitar Hero?
Favorite sports teams:
Andrew likes motocross, a lot!
