“Because of where we are we have to advertise all online. We would love to do the flyers and hand to hand contact with people, but because of being in Idaho the music opportunity up here isn’t as big as we would like it to be.”
Check out the interview with Dark Clove & Atroscity exclusively on Skilly Magazine Online.
Skilly: Where did this all start? Tell us about your journey in the entertainment business.
Dark Clove & Atroscity: Myself Lane Underwood (Dark Clove) and my business partner and buddy Richard Bowlin (Atroscity) have always had an ear for lyrics and real hip hop and rap. We started with a mic in a box and a laptop. From there we just worked and worked on upgrading equipment and working on are rimes and flows to get to where we are today.
What would be your biggest piece of advice for the young kids out there trying to do what you do?
Don’t let anyone hold you down or hate on you, or let the criticism effect where you wanna go in this life. Don’t follow what’s popular in today’s media, do what you like writing about because it’s your heart and soul going into your music.
What are some of the hardest challenges and tasks in your position?
Getting exposure in the place we live right now. There’s not many music opportunity’s in Idaho, but we do what we can with what exposure we have.
We all know the entertainment business is very tough, but what do you find is the best way to promote and advertise your music?
Because of where we are we have to advertise all online. We would love to do the flyers and hand to hand contact with people, but because of being in Idaho the music opportunity up here isn’t as big as we would like it to be.
Tell us about your city. How are the artists and the fans?
Pocatello, Idaho has pretty decent fans for what we work with here, and Boise has some great artist. It’s hard to make a name in such a small state, but we just keep pushing and pushing how we can.
Where do you see yourself a year from today?
Just still pushing words the dream of working just on music for the rest of are lives and getting our names out there for people to see what we have to say.
Who and what were your biggest inspirations? Who do you look up to in today’s world?
Tech N9ne, Mad Child, Kevin Gates, any hip hop. I really enjoy the lyrics, the stories, the lives. Tech N9ne came from nothing and is the hardest working independent artist in the industry.
How do you feel about the music coming out today? Do you like it?
Some artists, but not a huge fan of a lot of the new artists. We try and give every artist a chance.
Where can we contact you and find you online?
