Today we’d like to introduce you to Clone Hero.
Clone Hero, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
The funny thing about the three of us is that we knew each other for years before starting the band. We all worked at the same company but didn’t really acknowledge the fact that we were musicians. It wasn’t until the timing was right for the three of us in our own respective lives that allowed us to carry out with being a band. Typical things like family, relationships, careers, etc. It started out with me and Dan, and we spent months rehearsing, then took the plunge and recorded our EP in 2017. When it came time to find a bass player, we didn’t have to look hard because Dylan jumped at the chance right away. We think we have a pretty solid thing going on thus far and can’t wait to see what’s ahead.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
Our music is a response to the lack of actual alternative rock that’s absent on modern mainstream radio. It has only solidified the notion that “rock is dead”, and we want to celebrate and pay tribute to the bands that motivated us to get where we are by expressing that inspiration.
Do you think conditions are generally improving for artists? What more can cities and communities do to improve conditions for artists?
Building communities with other likeminded artists. The reason why it worked so well for the grunge boom back in the 90’s was that they helped each other. Bands like Soundgarden and Alice in Chains played on the same bills and the same venues, made the same connections. Having positive connections and relationships in this industry is key to having a long-term career in music.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
