Video Interview: Kodaline (round two)

Hey guys!

Whenever I prepare an interview, I try to imagine what it might turn out like.
As an interviewer I always want to make it comfortable for the bands and entertaining for the viewers.

Of course the people you interview always have a massive impact on the content you produce.

On Friday, the 26th of February 2016, I was lucky enough to film another wonderful interview with Kodaline.

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)
Jason Boland (bass, backing vocals)
Vinny May (drums, percussion, backing vocals)

2015 was a whirlwind for the band; they released their fantastic record "Coming Up For Air", played tons of festivals, performed with Ed Sheeran and continued living the dream. 

So far 2016 consisted of writing new songs and touring.

Right now Kodaline are on a massive tour, so please click here to see if the lads are coming to a city near you.

After having a fabulous time interviewing the band last year, I knew I wanted to meet up with them again and have another little chat.
This time Jay and Steve sat down with me and we spoke about touring, running out of socks, the next record and we played the "accent challenge" where the guys took turns speaking in different accents.

Check out one of the most hilarious interviews I got to film so far.

At this point I would like to say a massive thank you to the wonderful Sony Music Germany team (especially Hanna!) for being super supportive and for making this happen.

And of course another massive thank you to Lewis, Jay and Steve for another lovely chat and some great laughs.
(Also, big ups to Jay for that killer thumbnail, I appreciate it!)

Thank you for your visit!
