Not to long after we began this website, we launched a series called Voices Of The Underground. It was born out of the fact I kept wanting to ask the same questions every time we did an interview, and because there were some ideas and concepts that seemed like they could be explored by any musician, no matter what genre of music they made or level of success they had achieved.
Instead of repeating ourselves over and over again, we instead sent 15 questions to literally hundreds of bands, solo artists, and producers to see if we could get a response. What we got was unexpected, and over the course of 15 weeks, we heard opinions from over 30 artists on issues of faith, the music industry, and being an artist in this day and age. Brooke Waggoner, hip-hop artist Dirt, Dominic Balli, and Chris Taylor along with members of Corpus Christi, Inhale/Exhale, Run Kid Run, Take It Back!, and many others participated in this round table like discussion.
Two months ago it ended. We had used up all of our questions, and we said goodbye to Voices Of The Underground. However, since the series went so well, and we got such an amazing response (part two of last “season” is one of our most viewed posts), we decided to revamp the series and present to you a brand new Voices of The Underground.
New look, new artists, and a few new questions (although some old favorites will return this season).
So here is how its going to go, every week we will post responses to one question (there are 15 in all). Some of the questions will give you a lot of incite into your favorites musician’s hearts, and some will (hopefully) challenge your perception on certain issues. The goal of this is to try and present as wide of a variation of opinions as possiable, so I am sure there will be a few answers that you will not agree with.
The beauty of this series is that it does not end with the artist’s responses, you can be as much a part of Voices Of The Underground as they are. Make comments, start discussions, and leave your mark. We want to hear what you have to say.
Now, for the moment you have all been waiting for, here is look at some of the line-up for Voices of The Underground2:
A Hope For Home

Bodies of Water
White Collar Sideshow
The Glorious Unseen

and there will be many more to come, so stay tuned
