Video Interview: Kodaline


Hey guys!

I don't think I'll ever find words to describe how much I love creating content for this website.
I get to do so many different things, work on so many different features and own a little space of web filled with things I love.

As cheesy as it may sound, meeting people and working with them face to face has to be my favourite part. 
Yesterday I got to meet Kodaline, a fantastic band. We sat down in their dressing room and had a little chat.

Kodaline are a four piece band from Dublin, Ireland. Genre-wise they walk on the fine line between alternative and folk-rock
Singer Steve and guitarist Mark have known each other from school. Meeting drummer Vinny and former bassist Conor a few years later led them to start out as a band. As "21 Demands" the quartet was part of the Irish talent show "You're A Star" and came in second. 
After a busy time and a chart hit, things slowed down.

With a new bassist and a new band name - Kodaline was born. Their first selftitled EP brought out their song "All I Want" which found a lot of positive feedback, especially online. Soon that song was played on the TV series Grey's Anatomie and The Vampire Diaries.
In 2013 the press re-discovered the band and predicted big times for the Irish lads.  
Kodaline are:
Steve Garrigan (lead vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar)
Mark Prendergast (lead guitar, backing vocals, keyboards)
Vinny May (drums, percussion, backing vocals)
Jason Boland (bass, backing vocals)

And those big times kicked in for the guys; their 2015 has been a proper whirlwind so far - a successful album release, loads of festivals, touring, announcing massive concerts, performing with Ed Sheeran in front of 80000 people. 
The list goes on. 

With so many things happening, we had quite a lot to speak about.  

Watch what the guys have to say about their new music video, writing diaries, Michael Jackson.
We also played a game and learned a lot more about the band!
