With so many cool bands out there to check out I offer you some minor guidance by introducing you to MAGG DYLAN . Anders Ekdahl ©2019
Please state your name and what you do in the band?
-My name is Suzanne De Iulio and I am the vocalist.
Let’s start with your latest recording. When you look back at it now what kind of feelings do you have for it?
-I love our album. I am very proud of our message and the work we put it into it.
I am fascinated by band names. What was it that made you settle on the one you have and what does it mean to you?
-Magg Dylan was born out of Mary of Magdalene. She has always been one of my favorites.
What does it mean to you that there are people out there that actually appreciate and look forward to what you are doing?
-I am honored and grateful people are interested in our journey. Our music family is the fuel that keeps us going.
How important is image to the band? What impression do you want the fans to get of the band?
-That’s a great question, and nothing that we considered before. We appreciate the fact we can be authentic while doing what we love.
I am a huge fan of LP artwork. How important is it to have the right artwork for your album?
-We feel like the artwork should coincide with the message portrayed on the album.
We live in a superficial world today where you don’t exist if you are not on Youtube and Facebook. Has social media been only beneficial in socializing with the fans or is there a downside to it too?
-We love social media because we can connect to our music family all around the world.
When you play in a band does it feel like you are a part of a massive community? That you belong to something that gives meaning to your life?
-Absolutely. We love our music community and it keeps growing. We have been welcomed by so many people. Finding our family in this community has been the answer to the question of life.
When you are in the middle of it do you notice what state our beloved music scene is in? Is the scene healthy or does it suffer from some ailment?
-I have read the “Rock is dead” or there is no scene so many times, but then at the live shows there are 100’s of people coming together to enjoy the music. Some shows may not have 100 people, but what matters is the people that are there enjoy the show.
How much of a touring band are you guys? How hard is it to get gigs outside of your borders?
-We are on our tour right now. Thanks partially to social media, we were able to make connections that help open opportunities for gigs outside of the area. Its takes a lot of perseverance to make it happen.
What will the future bring?
-More Magg Dylan!
