Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on ALL DAY SUMMER

Afresh: What is your name, and name your group/band/act? –  My name is Nate Stafford, and I am under the artist title “All Day Summer”

Afresh: Where are the artists from?  What is their talent in the group? –  I am from Hutchinson Kansas, I do all the music and singing, guitar, bass, drums, vocals,

Afresh: How did the band get the name? –  I came up with the name because I love summer, and in my opinion every day should be summer! lol  It also fits my                                                                                      style of music

Afresh: What instrument do you play now? (If applicable) –  Guitar, Bass, Drums, some Synth, some Ukelele

Afresh: How would you describe your music/art/entertainment for the public audience if they have never seen you before? – Upbeat Punk, with a positive,   deep, and meaningful message

Afresh: Give me some details about the group/act/art? – I have been writing music for 3 in a half years, I write music as an expression and ministry, my goal is to connect with people through music and share my story, maybe and hopefully change someones life!

Afresh: How long have you been performing live or making art? – I’m use to playing live, but I haven’t done much live shows for my music yet.

Afresh: What has been the biggest challenge for you or the group? – Remembering why I do what I do… for me, I do it all for God’s glory, and sometimes it’s tempting to do it for myself.

Afresh: You’ve heard of the term “starving artists” before, how do you cope with major obstacles? – I just hang in there, God’s got a plan for me and I’m willing to do it, no matter what it cost me… and it’s cost me a lot.

Afresh:  Do you feel the economic crunch has hurt the industry, or do you have some other promotional tips to help support your music? – I’m working out some promotional deals… kinda lol, I’m just hoping for the best right now.

Afresh: Art & Music has an impact on both young and old.  Everyone loves a celebrity, so what advice do you have for the youth of today? – The youth of today are too dramatic lol, Live a life thats meaningful, and just be your self. Don’t let the world tell you your not good enough because in God’s eyes your everything.  I am a youth of today, but I’ve been through crazy, painful, and amazing situations. And the only thing thats got me through it was the love of Jesus!

Afresh: What does your family think of your performance and do they support you? – My family supports me 100%, and they are also musically talented so it helps to have them around when I’m running by song ideas.

Afresh: What is your stance on how to get the public to support “live music” and see the shows?  Any ideas??? – I feel that people should support live music, because the most talented artists are the one’s who put on a good show, without lip synching lol

Afresh: Thinking back, did your family carry on the same musical/artistic interests? – Yes, they had done many shows and tours with their own group before and after I was born.

Afresh: Do you have your own favorite type of music and is it any different from what you play now? – I listen to everything, but its all different than what I write.

Afresh: Do you have other interests or talents you would like to share with us? – I am actively involved in my church youth group, but other than that music is my #1 interest.

Afresh: What has been your strong influence to continue performing? – The calling to do it, I had prayed for a path to be led out for me, and it’s only been getting easier for me since then.

Afresh: Does anyone in particular influence your artistic/musical talent? – Jesus Christ, he is my everything.  And the love that I’m waiting to find.

Afresh: Who does most of the song writing/art/literature? – I do (Nate Stafford)

Afresh: If you had to change one thing about your music/group what do you feel would be the best change to benefit the group overall and why? – I don’t really feel like I need to change anything about my music… yet lol

Afresh: Have you ever had any strange or stalker type fans that you are aware of? – Not that I know of lol

Afresh: While getting ready to perform have you ever been interrupted by fans who snuck in to the dressing room/rehearsal? – Nope, thank God lol

Afresh: Tell us about your most embarrassing moment if you care to share it with us? – One time I swallowed a fly at an outdoor show that I played at a park lol needless to say the vocals were far from great at that moment lol

Afresh: What has been the worst nightmare for the group?  How did you get through it all? – My biggest fear is losing the reason I write music, but praying about it really helps the situation.

Afresh: What are your up-to-date performance plans?  New releases?  Tours? News? – I’m working on some shows coming up for some parties, I have possibility to be promoted by JDX music promotions, and I’m sending in my music to INO records and hoping for the best.

Afresh: If you could perform with anyone in the world, either dead or alive who would it be? Why? (Name up to three) – Paramore – because I’ve been a big fan of theirs for awhile, plus I’ve got a HUGE crush on Haley Williams lol

Hawk Nelson – because they are like my favorite band, and they have a good message

Owl City – because I love his creativity in music, and I think we would get along lol

Afresh: What is the furthest show from your home that you have done? – I did a show about 500 miles away from my home in Arkansas

Afresh: Do you currently have an agent, endorsement, record label, sponsor, etc.? – none yet, but currently have some offers, but I’m open to anything

Music brings people all ages together, and sometimes people call it the center to the soul for “WHEN WORDS SPEAK IN A WHISPER, MUSIC SPEAKS LOUD AND PROUD!!!”
