Line-up wise KANE’D remind me of Cedar Street Sluts with three lead vocalists but that is also the end of the comparison. To find out more about the band I interviewed them. Anders Ekdahl ©2016
Could you please introduce us to the band?
-We are a female fronted rock band from South Wales (UK). We are a little bit different from other bands as we have 3 lead female vocalists who happen to be sisters, Stephanie, Stacey and Chez Kane
What has been the greatest catalyst in shaping your sound?
– The most defining moment of our song writing came when we decided to stop listening to everybody else’s opinions on what they thought we should sound like. When we finally did it our way and went on our gut instinct’s, we finally found our sound.
How hard is it to record and release new songs?
– It is hard to record music when you are on a budget… Studios and producers are not cheap. The best thing we ever did was create our own in house studio as we can just jump in there whenever we feel like it. We definitely find it easier to release music to our fans as everything is so much more accessible because of the internet.
Has digital made it easier to get your music released?
– Yes it has. We can get new music to fans within hours. We still like to sell our hard copies though as we think it feels more personal.
If you release your music digitally is there a risk that you release songs too soon, before you are ready compared to releasing them on CD?
– We plan everything well in advance so can’t say we have had this problem. We usually release both on the same day.
What kind of responses have you had to your recorded music?
-Very positive. Our fans seem to really like the latest album ‘RISE’ and the reviewers are giving it a big thumbs up too, so we are super pleased.
We live in a world where there are no real distances between people communicating anymore. What has been the most surprising contact so far?
– Its always a nice surprise when people from all over the world get in touch to say they are listening to our music. We have fans from America, Europe, Japan… It’s nice to know.
Do you feel like you are a part of a greater community playing in a band?
-Being in a band is like having another family aswe spend so much time together. There definitely seems to be a community kind of feeling with other bands…. It’s always great playing festivals as it feels like getting together with old friends.
What is the live scene like for you? Do you feel that playing live helps building a bigger following?
-Playing live is the best for our band. People really seem to enjoy themselves and really get into it. Most of our fans are generated from our live shows
What plans do you have for the future
-We are about to get back into our studio to start writing album number 3. We have quite a few shows booked in for this year and we are currently booking up a European tour for early 2017.
