A Fine Frenzy Interview (pg. 2)

Sindy: So let's say the album takes off in a big way - let's hope it does - what's the first thing you're going to treat yourself to?
A Fine Frenzy: Well if it does take off I'll probably be on tour. So the first thing I'll treat myself to is a massage. That's my biggest treat - and shopping. And really I think I would just take the band out because it's a big thing.

Sindy: So you've been touring a lot, I assume?
A Fine Frenzy: We've been touring quite a bit the last couple of months and it's such a different experience for me because I spent so much time indoors and at home writing and being alone and quiet. And now going out and meeting so many people and going so many places, it's really different and something I'm really loving.

Sindy: How do you keep yourself entertained when you're on the road?
A Fine Frenzy: Um, I sleep a lot. That's not really entertainment, is it? It's kind of the anti-entertainment. I listen to a lot of music and write little stories. I can't really read books on a moving bus, so I play guitar with the band. I don't really play guitar all that well yet, but I'm working on it. My fingers are usually almost bleeding when we get to our stop, but it's worth it.

Sindy: The name "A Fine Frenzy" comes from A Midsummer Night's Dream. Are their other literary influences in your work?
A Fine Frenzy: There are so many literary influences in my work. I believe words in equal words out, or ideas in equal ideas out. Growing up I was such a bookworm. I always had a book with me. I loved fairytales and stories that had that fantastic quality to them.

Sindy: What are you reading right now?
A Fine Frenzy: Lately I've been on a Jane Austen kick and reading other classics because it's what more modern books are influenced by. Of course, the classics were influenced by even older classics, but I figure it's safe to go for books that were written recently enough to still be relatable but old enough where it retains the feeling of a time long gone.

Sindy: What advice would you give to young people who are interested in pursuing a career in music?
A Fine Frenzy: I think that the temptation is to do what everybody else is doing because it seems like the safe thing. It's scary and difficult to find your own voice and go for it because it's risky and you expose yourself more. But, in the end, if you if you stick with who you are and what you believe in and your own creativity, style and voice, you'll go further. At least you'll know, at the end of the day, that you're being honest and you're doing the best you can. I think that's so important for a young artist to remember.
