Person Interviewing: Dustin McKee
Song name: She’s Bad
Music Genre:: Psychedelic funky rap rock blues with a lil twang

This song is about: Falling for temptation, women and their hypnotic and enticing potential to lead a man astray from his responsibilities and true purpose, but also the appreciation for their beauty and how much we can’t help but chase them.

My music is: Made to attract the attention of the party crowd, but with a secret layer of messages to provoke thought, inspiration and to enlighten and enrich the soul. These songs represent the redemption of our sinful ways.
How do you think this release represents your current direction: Strategic and business based. Most artists start off with soulful and meaningful music and eventually fall into the mold of radio-based simplicity aka “selling out.” We want to knock that part out first to establish our foundation and then release the meaningful stuff.
Where do you create your music?: Typically started by either visionary roots or a single riff. Built from a core idea and blossomed through several branches until fully formed to its final stage. Recorded one instrument at a time. We really like to stick to the roots of music, just plug in and play. Effects are sweet but we love the idea that many of our favorite artists changed our lives and others’ without advanced technology.

How do you stay focused and balance creating with life: You have to find as many ways as possible to turn the two lives into one. Sacrifice is key. Not getting sucked into the world is important. Don’t fall for life’s distractions. Small steps at a time. Dustin is a music teacher. Josh works for a radio station. Kirk works at a job with a lot of traveling and free time, sometimes with Dustin.

What piece of music advice forever changed your way of thinking?: Thank anyone and everyone who criticizes you. Witnessing our favorite bands perform live has been beyond inspiring. Spirituality and scripture play big roles in pretty much everything we do.
I live in: Nashville, TN, originally from Kokomo, IN.
Nashville is MUSIC CITY! Kokomo typically packs the place shoulder to shoulder when we visit. The culture there is awesome but not thriving.
