meet Alaska & Aurora

1. How and when did your band/solo act start?

We all met through the music school B2R around early 2016, but we’ve just recently really come to our own this year; finding our sound, our creative concept, and writing our own original songs.

2. What inspired you to pursue music?
Witnessing and expieriencing the effect that music has on an individual, pulling out emotions and bringing people of all backgrounds together, inspired us to pursue music ourselves.

3. How has music changed your life or others around you?
“It’s helped me become more open, transparent, with those around me and has given me another way of connecting with others. Its just always given me this rush; whether I’m the one on stage or watching from the audience, I feel the bass of the song pounding in my chest and I’m free.” (Lía Marie Johnson, Lead Vocalist and Bassist) “Music has changed my life because it gave me a safe space to express myself and say what i want to say without worrying what other people may say or think. It also surrounded me with people who supported me and understood how much music meant to me.” (Rachel Kane, Lead Guitarist and Vocals)
“Its has helped me deal with problems in life and helps me express myself in another way.“ (Denise Loewinger, Rhythm Guitar) “Music is a way for me to express myself without having to use words.” (Kate Sulek, Drummer) “Music has changed my life because it’s my family’s way of connecting with one another and has given me a place to be and express myself in a constructive way. It’s brought me closer to my family and friends and introduced me to many new friends.” (Chloe Waterman, Keyboardist)

4. What musicians have influenced you or inspired you?

There are countless musicians that we’ve been inspired by, but some that have heavily influenced us are Fleetwood Mac, David Bowie, HAIM, and Delta Rae.

5. What are your future plans as a band or individually?

We’d really like to release an album in the near future and grow as a band, expanding our audience. We’d like for everyone to be able to hear our music.

1. How and when did your band/solo act start?

We are all students at Bach to Rock (B2R) South Riding. Two of our band members started playing together in a band with B2R in the Fall of 2012. Our current band members have been playing together since March 2014.

2. What inspired you to pursue music?

Our parents all have a background in music. We all realized from the beginning the band was something we wanted to stick with. We have a lot of fun and are great friends.

3. How has music changed your life or others around you?

It gives us an outlet for our ideas and energy. Since the band first started we have been committed to playing ONLY originals. We have all grown as musicians and songwriters.

4. What musicians have influenced you or inspired you?
All of us have been influenced by Green Day. Band member specific influences include: Will (lead vocals, guitar) - Presidents of the United States of America, Cake, Jack White, bands that put humor in their music and tell a story; Sean (backup vocals, guitar) - Fall Out Boy, 21 Pilots; Kristofer (bass) - Drake, Migos; Stephen (keyboard) - Billy Joel, Jack White, Ray Manzarek; Nate (drums) - Fall Out Boy, 21 Pilots

5. What are your future plans as a band or individually?
Get Lejitsu on the radio! Continue to write new originals songs and start recording them. Keep posting videos to YouTube and increase our views. Rock out more live shows.
