Where are you based?
How long have you been making music?
We started Sinner Sinners in 2009 back in France. In 2010 we moved to LA and now we have an American line up. We are six on stage so it’s pretty messy, noisy and a lot of fun!
What genre would you consider your music to be?
It’s a bunch of things mostly rock’ roll, punk and a touch of something else a little heavier.
What inspired you to pursue a career in music?
We grew up in a small city with not much to do, Steve had is own band, but when we got married we wanted to have that together. We were lucky to live in a city that was really trying to help young people in any artistic ways; you could for example rent a rehearsal space for a few euros per session.
What are your biggest musical influences?
When we started the band our influences where the Stooges, David Bowie and the Rolling Stones. With time we still listen to the same bands but we also listen to a lot of Motown and soul music.
Are you signed to a label or are you an independent artist?
We do have a couple labels but they are all independent so the answer is both I guess.
What have been the biggest challenges in your music career?
To find the money to make music and do what you like. If you are realistic it can be hard and draining but just like anything you really care about, it’s always worth it. I’m glad my parents didn’t tell me I could be a president or an astronaut so my expectations are not too high!
How many songs or albums have you released to date?
We have released 3 full albums, a compilation and a few singles/EP since 2010. The first album was recorded in our hometown with a lot a friends and the last 2 in Los Angeles
Can you tell us a few things about your latest release?
The songs that we covered a really different from what we have released, it might not be as violent as some of the stuff we did, but it’s still high energy. We were also super stocked to have a great horn section, it definitely made a huge difference.
Any plans for new music or upcoming projects we should know about?
We are working on our next album, hopefully we will be done in the studio in the next few months and on the road next year.
