Q&A With LUME
1. Where are we talking from today?
Good old Detroit, MI
2. What would you like to accomplish in 2019?
We would like to record our future hit album of existing and performable material with a proper engineer. Perhaps find a proper label that will help us with this and launching our career as artists.
3. Has the government shutdown effected you or anyone you know?
Not specifically, I have friends who needed to renew their medical cards through the government and obviously had to wait a long time to get them processed.
4. What is your take on politics?
We don’t like to talk about politics much, it isn’t proper to bring up in conversation. If we would’t share our beliefs at a dinner party, we certainly wouldn’t share them with the world. Activism is another story, if there is ‘wrong’ happening and we have the opportunity to stand up against it….we will however. We will say that what has been happening in politics the last few years is a ‘JOKE’ fueled by the unethical misuse of media.
5. Where did you get your artist name from?
LÜME(this might turn out wrong through yahoo, its LUME with an umlaut)
LUME is a feeling to us, derived from the abrupt ending of our last indie project. A feeling of loose ends and nostalgia hovering over one’s head. We had a ton of issues finding a name that we agree with so we picked one and gave it definition. We will most likely change it when we have completed recording and have set a plan to attack airwaves.
6. At what age did you make music a pursuit?
We both started playing different instruments in our early adolescences and throughout the years learned as many as we could pick up teaching ourselves. As soon as we got ahold of a few notes I think we both knew it would eventually be our self-made destiny.
7. Did your family and friends support you in your pursuit of music?
Our families allowed us both the time to suck off and create. That is…. focus on music; a pursuit of decay to a strict family. We are really blessed to have the people in our lives. Our friends never said “you suck” so maybe that’s why we never stopped. it’s never to late to speak up..?
8. Do you have an album/EP out now that readers should check out or are you about releasing singles?
We have single demos released on soundcloud.com/lume365 for now as well as a live video onfacebook.com/lume365 facebook.com/lumedetroit and @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTnczIcBxtw
This is all for now until we decide to go one way or another.
9. Do you have any plans to tour?
No plans to tour for now but like us onfacebook.com/lume365 and we will surely release our future tours as soon as they come to fruition.
10. What artists are you listening to right now?
the Delphonics, always going back to motown R&B and Soul that’s a given:)
as far as todays music the Gorillaz NowNow album. As well as a constant Radiohead, MGMT, Jungle, Tame Impala, Glass Animals. We never stop looking for new influences as you can imagine.
11. When you are not making music what else do you enjoy to do?
Jeremy loves to play video games and even D&D with his friends.
Clay likes to go to as many concerts as he can and also play hockey when it’s not interfering with any aspect of music.
We love cinema, there’s nothing like loosing yourself momentarily in a story that is not your own. We do love our lives and exploring the natural world we were born into.
