Let's Get It Interview featuring Taylor Foiles

If you don't know who Let's Get It is, you are surely missing out. They're from Dayton, Ohio (which means they are local for me) and composed of 5 members. The first time I heard about this band was when I went to a concert at The Attic (a local place for concerts) and they blew me away. They are an exciting new blend of pop, rock, and heavy orchestral breakdowns. They put on one hell of a show too, they really show their fans its all about having fun. After all, we all know that when the band is having fun, they play better, which creates a better show for everyone. Getting signed to Fearless Records about a year and a half ago, the band is showing the world what they are made of. I got a chance to ask some questions to Taylor Foiles (the bass player for Let's Get It) about their upcoming tour called "Blood on the Dance Floor" with Breathe Electric.

Me: With somewhat recently being signed to Fearless Records, how are you liking the journey so far?

Taylor Foiles: "Fearless is an amazing record label. Everyone from the bands to the interns on Fearless are all great friends of ours. We couldn't ask for anything more. Our first full length album coming 2011 will really show the world what we have been working toward this whole last year an a half. The label has been supportive every step of the way."

Me: You have an up and coming tour called "Blood on The Dance Floor", can you tell us more about that?

Taylor Foiles: "The BOTDF tour is perfect for us. A coast to coast fall tour just after our months of recording is much needed to get to play again in front of some new and old fans. Also supporting is some friends of mine Breathe Electric, we will all have a lot of fun I'm sure!"

Me: You have been on quite a few tours lately, just coming out of one with Stephen Jerzak, and then starting this one in October. What are the best and worst things about being on tour?

Taylor Foiles: "Ahh the Stephen Jerzak tour was insane!! It was a nice short tour right before recording started. Some of the best things about tour is becoming friends with the other bands and partying non stop :) Getting to play in front of new fans and remembering old ones at shows makes all the difference to me. It is a great feeling when people enjoy our live show! The only bad part about tour is being away from our friends and families, not showering gets old too haha."

Me: Do you have any upcoming plans or hints you can give us about any new songs our album releases?

Taylor Foiles: "NEW is the word! Our full length album will have nothing but new songs on it! Also in the works is a Christmas track, which will be out this coming holiday."

Me: Lastly, now that you are signed and living every musicians dream, if you could give any piece of advice to an aspiring musician what would it be?

Taylor Foiles: "(If you would like to be in a band like LGI) Go to school/work, when you get home practice your instument for hours then text your friends and find a party and go to it. Just repeat that everyday. Play hard and work hard."

I'm not sure about you guys, but I'm stoked for the full length album next year. If you want to find out more about the band you can find them on Myspace . Posted below is their music video "Duck, Duck, Grey Goose" from their EP Digital Spaces. Feel free to comment!
