Here is a fun interview of Brad Smith made by Olivia from kidsinterviewbands.com.
Over 20 years ago, Olivia’s dad did a phone interview with Blind Melon. The band was still unkown and months away from releasing their debut album.
You can hear “The Wolf” in the intro of the interview which is the first song released of Brad’s next record “Break In The Weather”.
“…it was a very rewarding experience to have Nico sing with me on this song. She is 18 years old, I can’t believe it’s been that long since Shannon left the world. It was so fun and heady to sing together and make music. When Nico and I sing together it just feel like home in some strange way. Her tone is amazing and erie… it would make Shannon smile. It’s a song about reaching out to someone but not knowing if they are reaching back…” Brad says.
