What's more Seattle than supporting your local businesses? Supporting your local musicians, that's what. So be a responsible Northwestern-er and get yourself down to Victory Studios for the taping of our next episode of Band in Seattle with artists My Goodness and Mirror Ferrari on February 10th. Front doors open at 6PM at Victory Studios, 2247 15th Avenue West (near the Interbay Golf Center).
Sometimes it really does feel like things happen for a reason. Call it fate or destiny, chance or luck, sometimes things just click and fall solidly into place. That’s something My Goodness knows all about, because it’s exactly what happened when guitarist/vocalist Joel Schneider and drummer Andy Lum first started playing together in 2012. Both hailing from Seattle, they’d known about each other for years, but it took crossing paths in Texas for the two to finally connect.
“Andy and I have known of each other since high school,” explains Schneider. “We both played in small neighborhood bands back then, although we didn’t really reconnect until SXSW in 2012. We initially just started talking about the possibility of playing together. I ended up calling Andy a couple months later and we got the ball rolling. We had our first show at MFNW in Portland, Oregon about two weeks later. We were only able to squeeze in a few practices beforehand, but it ended up going really well.”
Saying “the vocals are like another instrument” is a cool thing to say when describing a band; with Mirror Ferrari it’s true. They could be singing mindless gibberish but as long as the cool breaths and vocal patterns are there the songs seem like an orchestrated masterpiece. Add that to some reverb-y guitar and these guys are one to watch. Also, any band that has a song about their band name is OK in my book. – MA
