ROSEBURG: ALICE


Introducing: Roseburg https://open.spotify.com/album/2HwUqAKQHnzGub92MN8ljX


Thank you for taking this interview! What has 2022 been like for YOU as an artist? 2022 has seen the return of the band, and we couldn't be more happy to be back together making music. And finally being able to plan some live shows soon! Can you tell us how you've transformed from the beginning to now as an artist? The biggest difference between Roseburg back then to now is that we are more sure of our style. Everything we're making now feels more like Roseburg than ever. How did you come up with your latest project? Our new song 'Alice' was actually written by our lead singer Zach way back when he was 16 while he was in line for the Alice in Wonderland ride at Disneyland! We've always loved the song and thought it would be a great one to resurrect. Where are you from originally? The band originally formed in Roseburg, Oregon, hence the name. The 3 founding members, Zach, Sam, and Keith were all missionaries there. Where do you live now? The band is now based in Utah! Do you think where you live impacts how your music is made? We are still pretty inspired by the Oregon landscape, which couldn't be more different from Utah. But we're trying to embrace who Roseburg is in a different environment, because at the end of the day, music transcends any one place. What was the inspiration to make music your career? It is really just a path that all of us have been on for as long as we can remember, long before we really knew what it meant to have a "career". It's just what we do now. How do you want to shape your career? All of us just want to write and play music full time. We want to experiment, we want to tell stories, and we want to experience really cool opportunities with our friends. Do you work on a tight timeline always or do you go with the flow when it comes to your music? We think it's important to set timelines, but they always end up changing, and you have to be okay with that. Music cannot be forced, it will come in it's own time. At least the good songs. Is it hard to let go of the music when it is done? At a certain point, you just have to put it out, because any changes that are being made aren't necessarily making the song better, they're just making it different. Do you feel an emotional attachment with your music? Yes. How would you describe your music in one word to someone who hasn't listened to it yet? Familiar. Where do they go to listen NOW? You can listen to Roseburg on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube... whatever works. What has been the best fan reaction to your music? We recently found out that Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City likes to play Roseburg in the operating room and that made us pretty emotional. Music, as a comforter, is maybe music in it's most powerful form. Being a conduit of that is pretty special. Is there anything exciting coming up for you? We are looking forward to announcing as many shows in 2023 as possible supporting lots of new Roseburg music! Give us all your socials and links so fans can link up with you!
