I'm a freelance journalist and interviewer in the music industry.

Hello, I'm Iceis. I'm from Virginia. I'm a freelance writer in the music/entertainment industry. My main focus is providing a more intimate connection with all of your favorite artists and bands, and highlighting all of the cool new music coming out in the Indie/underground scene. I don't really have a favorite music genre. Although, I listen mostly to pop, rock, metal, and all the different subgenres within those genres.

“The first step to controlling your world is to control your culture....To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.”

-Chuck Palahniuk

Behind the Noise: Interview With The Exhilarating Returning Hardcore Band GHOSTxSHIP

Sean: Man, it's so weird ‘cause I see people post their first shows, and they're always so sick. I grew up in Watertown, New York. It's pretty much Canada. It's [about] ten minutes away from the Canadian border, but it's [still] New York. It's what I call upstate New York. A lot of people everywhere else think upstate New York is just near the city. It's like, “No, I live like four hours away from the city. I'm nowhere close to the city whatsoever.” That's upstate New York, not just right next t

Behind the Noise: Interview With Orlando's Lively "Emo Trash" Rock Band FELICITY

Drew: We've always had this never-say-die attitude. Failure was never an option. There was never a point where we ever questioned whether we were going to keep going. Even through the darkest times, which I don't even know what [to consider] the darkest [times to be]. I can speak for myself; it always feels like we're just getting started. It always feels like we're a brand-new band. It doesn't feel like it's been a ten-year journey. It feels like the last song we put out is just the beginning o

Behind the Noise: Interview With Southtowne Lanes

Matt: So, it's me, Tyler, Helena, and Matt. Tyler, the other guitar player in the band, [and I] have known each other since kindergarten. since we were little kids. [We grew] up together. So, we've always had a relationship. And then we all met in high school, essentially. After [we had] graduated high school, we all loved playing emo music. So, it started the way it does a lot of the time. We would all go to the same parties, and we [would] be at the same friends’ houses hanging out, and we wer

Behind the Noise: Interview With Philadelphia's Richly Dynamic Rock Artist Comprador

Charlie: When I was really little, I liked Fantasia a lot. Like the old Disney animated movie, especially the sequence with the dinosaurs, which [features] Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. Early on, orchestral stuff like that made an impression on me. It's kind of embarrassing because I think he's [a] xenophobic shithead, but the first rock song I remember making a big impression on me was ‘Layla.’ the Eric Clapton song. I only liked the first half when I was a little kid because it sounds pissed of

Behind the Noise: Interview With Nashville's Raw, Upcoming Pop-Punk Artist Cameron Alexander

Cameron: I originally got into it [doing it the collaborative] way. [As] I told you, I did that band when I was twelve. And since then, I've just been in and out of bands for a long time. I just never really found a group of people that wanted to do the type of music I wanted to do. I never found anyone [who] was into pop-punk and wanted to do that kind of thing. And even beyond that, [I never found] people I really clicked with. I knew all the instruments myself anyway, and I was starting to us

Essie Randles on expanding their sense of humanity to encompass their characters – Phosphor Magazine

Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. Was there a defining moment when you realized that this is what you wanted to do? I’ve always loved performing, and I’ve wanted to be an actor since I was a kid, but there are two moments that I can pinpoint. The first was when I was five years old, and I did a performing arts night at my school. I remember my mom saying [afterward] that it was the happiest she’d ever seen me in my life, and that made me want to keep chasing that feeling. I had a ti

Interview: Carson Pace From The Callous Daoboys

After receiving high praise for their full-length album, Celebrity Therapist, in 2022, The Callous Daoboys followed it up with their latest EP, God Smiles Upon The Callous Daoboys.

Full of fun-loving yet still heavy experimentation, The Callous Daoboys continued to break the mold with the EP. Pushing the envelope (pun intended) with a more whimsically experimental sound and more straightforward lyrical messages, God Smiles Upon The Callous Daoboys traverses through each track, leaving you with
