By C. Price I like Nowhere Train. It’s a shame that I haven’t seen them in concert yet I was told it will blow my mind and now I just can’t wait. What’s left is watching videos of the band on YouTube. If you’re a honky tonk, rock, pop, singer songwriter or just a music fan you should try that as well.
The Nowhere Train is a story about Ryan, Ian, Stefan, Jacob, Frenk, Stephan and Martin making music as diverse as the individuals in the group. Don’t waste your time trying to fit them into the box you think they belong in. Instead, let The Nowhere Train guide you on their musical journey. You’ll be more than pleased with the sounds & scenery along the way. All you have to do is climb aboard.
How do two Americans and five Austrians join forces?
By taking their instruments, hopping on a train, and starting to play.
If someone never heard your music how would you get them to listen to it?
Would you like to hear something that could eventually change your life?
I have read about that music on a train project that happened a few years back and was wondering if that or something similar is ever gonna happen again? How did you realize it?
Yes, it should and will happen again. We’re planning on doing something similar in 2015. There are many ideas that have to be sorted out first. But maybe we’ll use a boat this time! The first tour was not so much about planning. It just happened because each and every one of us really wanted to do it. We never expected it to go on for such a long time.
In general, what is the secret of success and did you find that yet?
The secret of success might stay a secret for all times. It’s difficult enough to define success and it’s probably something different for every member of our group. If I had to say though, then I guess that my answer would be that it’s important to do what your heart tells you to do. If you can do that, then at least you’ve succeeded at something.
If someone asks you about country music in Germany does it exist? Who is the one to listen to?
Sorry, but I don’t know anything about country music in Germany. There are loads of great Songwriters in Germany, but Country…? I don’t know. I’ve never heard a “real” country band from Germany.
How is the music scenes treating you in Berlin and Vienna?
We are treated like kings in Vienna! We have a lot of fans and friends that support us there. Some of us are based in Berlin and their individual projects are well-received there, but the Nowhere Train has only played in the German capital once. It was in a circus tent and most of the audience was Austrian, but we think the Berliners there liked it too! Though two of our members are from Missouri, USA, the entire band hasn’t yet crossed the ocean. According to the Americans in the band though, they say that US audiences would probably eat our music up, we would experience a bunch of crazy things if we went on tour there, and we’d be lucky if we made enough money to pay for gas and our endless bar tabs.
What are the plans for the next six months?
We’re playing many many shows and record a 4-5 Songs EP.
As a member of Nowhere Train what does a regular work day look like?
As a member of nowhere train luckily there is no regular work day. Name 3 things on your bucket list.
Each of our members would have a different bucket list, so we’ll make one for the band.
1To go on tour on the Trans-Siberian Railroad.
2 To record an entire album straight to vinyl.
3 To remake the sequel to the Sound of Music as a Nowhere Train musical.
Name songs that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Across the universe, the sun ain’t gonna shine anymore [sic] “Mr. Bojangles” – Bob Dylan “Bitch don’t kill my vibe” -Kendrick Lamarr
Worst venue you have played in?
We are a kind band, we keep our secrets.
Name one nasty habit you can’t live without.
Eating from other people’s plates. (might be something different for everyone like many questions here…but why not?)
Would you leave your phone at home for at least one day?
I’d be happy to go without my cell phone forever.
