This interview with RANCHO BIZZARRO should have been up ages ago but it somehow fell through the cracks. But better late than never. Anders Ekdahl ©2018
When you look back and see how far you have come what do you think of this crazy journey so far and where the heck will it take us?
-When I look back, I see a kid who was trying to play an instrument trying to figure out how get the right sound. Today I’m still looking for the right sound and this means always getting better, and for the future, I’m sure I’ll still looking for improving to achieve my own sound.
I often wonder how people discover that they can do what they do. How did you discover that you can sing and play instruments?
-As the most, i started to play because in my teenage years i listened a lot of music so i try to play as my music heroes
When did it become a revelation that you can do this and maybe get paid for having fun, instead of just putting out all the money?
-With my first band ten years ago I started to play some gigs in Italy
When you spend an amount of your life on a band does it ever feel like you have wasted time, that you have fought one too many windmills?

-I would like people to continue to listen to my music and keep sharing it
Is digital taking away the mystery of waiting for a new album now that you can upload as soon as you have written a song?
digital is widespread, because people listen to music on devices. Actually we have lost the habit of knowing how to wait, to desire the release of an album , even in the last years there is a vinyl trend
How important is image in separating you from all the million different styles of metal there is out there?
– It would be important to find our own sound , but if you like what you play even it’s not so original, that’s okay.
Do you deal in different topics lyrically or do you keep to one, just using different variations?
-Rancho Bizzarro is an instrumental project
Do you consider yourself a live artist or do you like to spend most of the time secluded in a studio?
-I like both , recording in studio improve me as a musician but play live is very funny as a person
