Make History Talent Search - The Ruffled Feathers
Jim Beam teamed up with Canadian Music Week to find some of the best talent in the country. We spoke with The Ruffled Feathers about their upcoming show at the Roxy.
Hammer Records: When you think of Jim Beam, what comes to mind? Any crazy Jim Beam stories?
The Ruffled Feathers: When I think Jim Beam I think bourbon, which makes me think old fashions and whiskey sours. No crazy stories really, just a liquor cabinet that is getting too small because I have a lot of curiosity when it comes to making nice drinks.
Hammer Records: What do you think of battle of the band competitions? Do they help or hinder the local music scene?
The Ruffled Feathers: Battle of the Bands can be a lot of fun. It's a great way to get to know and connect with more artists. Every contest is different and the opportunities they create can make a difference for a lot of artists. I think they can be especially useful for new artists.
Hammer Records: What do you think makes the Vancouver music scene different and stand out compared to the rest of Canada?
The Ruffled Feathers: Vancouver has a lot of talent and the community just keeps getting stronger. There is a lot of outreach when it comes to music education and supporting artists with the tools and skills needed to succeed. We haven't had much of a chance to play elsewhere in Canada. BC is really when it comes to our music.
Hammer Records: What do fans have to look forward to in your performance on Thursday? Anything special? New songs? Surprises?
The Ruffled Feathers: We have a new full length album coming out early this summer. We'll be doing three songs from that recording.
Hammer Records: If you could send a message to the judges, what would it be?
The Ruffled Feathers: Thanks for listening!
