Interview With 'Rozu'
Firstly, introduce yourselves and tell us a little bit about the band and how you came to be?
Hey guys we are Rozu, a 4 piece Post Hardcore band from Denver Colorado. We are made up of myself (Tim Graham), Brian Robertson, DJ Sundine, and Henry Navarre. We came together back in January 2018 and just started really writing and building this idea of the band from the ground up.
What were you all up too prior to the band, was this always the chosen path or did you have other dreams and aspirations?
We have all been playing in various bands in our hometown for years, other than that I have studied a lot of the business side of the music industry and manage some bands and Brian is a pretty damn good actor and does musicals.
Tell us about your latest release and why our readers should check it out.
Well we are currently going the route of just releasing singles while we have an EP and Album on the backburner being finalized. I think what people mostly enjoy about us is how diverse we are with our heaviness blending into that melodic factor.
Who would you say is the bands main song writer or is it a group effort and where do you draw your inspiration lyrically and musically from?
When it comes to song writing it is for sure a collective effort. We all share this recording template and bounce ideas back and forth to each other. Lyrically I pretty much do all of it and draw inspiration from my own life and pulling the light from the dark. We pride ourselves in how we write so honestly and don’t just write a verse because it sounds cool.
As a band what do you believe is your greatest achievement to date and why?
I think it is just our overall growth which is growing rapidly utilizing this digital age of streaming we are in. Getting our latest single up to almost 20K streams right now is a great accomplishment.
Have you ever come face to face with someone within the music scene who has left you awestruck and why?
Through my job I got to spend a day in the studio with Linkin Park while they were recording their previous album, that was really the only time I felt like a true fan girl and was probably the quietest I’ve ever been.
What do you enjoy most about touring?
The connections you make for sure. It is awesome being able to go to different cities and have friends all over the world. I really enjoy that factor along with the local hotspots of food. If we were to head out to one of your live shows what can ourselves and others expect?
A set driven on energy and pure emotion. We put it all out there every single show whether it be to a full or empty room.
If you had one artist/band that you could go on tour with tomorrow who would it be and why?
Underoath 100%, because they are the living legends of this genre and have done so much for our inspiration as musicians. You can spend an hour with a musical icon living or dead, who would you pick, why and what would you speak about?
I would love to pick Dave Grohl’s brain on just his journey and really just talk about music gear for hours.
And finally and most importantly is Die Hard a Christmas Movie?
I know that the answer is yes but I still don’t buy it, just because the setting is around Christmas time doesn’t make it a Christmas movie. Website - rozuband.com
