Exclusive Interview with The Key Of F

How are you feeling about this year’s music you’ve put out so far?

Andie: It’s funny because there’s this constant battle that goes on in my head right before a new single drops. There’s a part of my brain that is so excited about it, it’s screaming “YAAAASSS! Oh wow, this track is so cool!!!It’s gonna kick *ss!” Then there is the other part of my brain that is filled with self-doubt going “Oh no. I hope our fans like it. Should we have done this differently? Will it resonate?” I don’t know if other artists go through that too or if it’s just me and my bizarre brain, but it’s every. song. we. release. I think Marie wants to strangle me right before a release when I’m like this, haha. Ultimately, I’m really proud of the work we’ve done and music we’ve put out.

The year is coming to an end! What are you doing in these last few months musically?

Andie: Everything. *laughs* We are doing everything. We are in the studio right now recording our debut EP so that has the majority of our focus. We are also rehearsing for live shows, writing more music and I am learning how to play bass. My goal is to be able to play bass and sing at the same time, that’s a multi-tasking nightmare. Mad respect for those artists that can do it. I’ve no idea how people can drum and sing at the same time but I am getting there with the bass guitar. Slowly.

What are you working on right now in the studio?

Andie: We just finished tracking two more songs that are going on our EP. Our Producers, Charlie Waymire and Ernesto Homeyer of Ultimate Studios, Inc are so amazing! They have found so many elements to lift these songs and take them to the next level. I adore working with them because they really understand the vibe we are going for with The Key of F. We were also very fortunate to have Menno Verbaten come in and play bass on several of our songs. He knocked it out of the park and very patiently answered all of my nagging questions about what he was doing on bass.

What are your studio sessions looking like these days?

Andie: Now comes the time for me to lay down the leads for our songs. This is the fun part for me because it’s play time. Certain things are set in stone, but there’s a lot of improvisation that happens with the vocals.

Is it just you when you go to record or do you work with others?

Andie: We love working with others and have done so for several songs. Our first single we had our dear friends Alexx Calise and Dennis Morehouse of Batfarm as our Producers and they also played on the track. They are amazing. Now we have been working very closely with Charlie and Ernesto of Ultimate Studios, Inc and we absolutely adore them. They have really elevated our music while keeping it true to what Marie and I envisioned.

All of our guest musicians have been incredible. Lenny J of Elegantly Wasted, Goddess with a bass: Jen Oberle, Tommy Reeves, and of course Menno Verbaten.

Who is the person that you want to work with next whether it’s putting them on a track or just producing? 

Andie: I would really love to work with Jim Lawton from Electric Enemy both in Producing and putting him on one of our tracks. He’s got some amazing pipes and he is ridiculously talented to boot. It goes without saying I would also want to work with Lucia Cifarelli. I’ve had such respect for her songwriting and singing talents for ages and she’s also been so supportive of us. I would love to just do backing vocals on one of her tracks one day. I kinda cheated and picked 2 people, but they are 2 really awesome people.

How are you customizing your sound in your next tracks?

Andie: These next several tracks are still going to have the same gritty vocals but we’ve defined our sound into this swampy-bluesy rock n roll that I think our fans will love. 

How do you make sure that you’re customizing your overall vision for your music?

Andie: I have a Marie and a Charlie.  Marie and I are really good about keeping one another on track. If I am straying too far into goth/industrial vibes she will pull me back to that swamp rock vibe. Our Producer, Charlie is also really fantastic about not letting us stray too far off course.

What is your overall vision for yourself!?

Andie:  Oh wow, there’s a great question. Hmm, I don’t know if I’ve ever actually sat down and asked myself this. On a personal level, I want to learn as much as I can and grow as an artist, and as a person. To never sacrifice my morals and always be comfortable in my own skin.

How are you leading with love with your music?

Andie: Many of our songs have the underlying message “embrace the power within yourself”. I want to inspire men and women to trust their instincts and know their self worth and not be afraid to walk away from a toxic situation.

Where can you be followed on social media?
