Artist of the Day: TramstonValley

For today's Artist of the Day feature, we visit Japan to meet 3 piece rock band TramstonValley.

TramstonValley are Haruki (vocals, guitar and songwriter), Wallaby (bass, backing vocals) and Nogi (drums) and they're from Asakusa Tokyo in Japan. They describe themselves as a blend of alternative rock, post grunge, blues rock, hard rock, Southern rock, and garage rock. - so quite a blend!

We asked the band a few of our hard-hitting questions:

What is your main inspiration?

I like 90's and 2000's U.S rock and classic rock. I think our sound comes mostly from those music genres.

How do you write your songs?

The melodies and an idea of the whole sound comes first, then I write the lyrics to fit.

What made you want to start in music?

My uncle was a guitarist and when he played, it always looked like fun! I thought at the time that I wanted to play guitar as well.

What is on the horizon for you?

I have a plan to make a solo EP, then we will record a TramstonValley album.

Who would you most like to collaborate with (alive or dead)?

Jimi Hendrix!

What is your ultimate goal?

I want to keep playing until I die! Before that happens, I'd like to make as many great songs as possible.

If you could cover any song, what would it be?

I have nothing specific, but I'd love to try something by Pearl Jam.

Tell us your funniest joke!

I can't tell any jokes in English. But I can say 1000 jokes in Japanese!

Whilst Haruki's spoken English was quite good, we have had to paraphrase some of his answers here
