We had a nice exchange of words with duo Bloody Diamonds. We will be interviewing as many artists that will be performing at Canadian Music Week as we can.
Hammer Records: Tell us what you think of when you think Canadian music?
Bloody Diamonds: Thats a pretty big question. Generally I don't categorize music by country, but we've definitely met a lot of bad ass hardworking (Canadian) bands over the years. We're very lucky to live in a country that has government funding for the arts.
Hammer Records: How did you get involved in Canadian Music Week?
Bloody Diamonds: I think this is our 3rd or 4th CMW now, not sure how we originally heard about it - it's just a great festival every band in Canada wants to play. Sometimes a friend will toss you an additional slot too which is cool. We're looking forward to it!
Hammer Records: What do you have planned for Canadian Music Week?
Bloody Diamonds: This is our first CMW actually living in Toronto so I plan to sleep at home in my own bed! Also catch some wicked bands, meet some people, learn some things. Musically we intend to deliver the same hard hitting show we always do. We'll probably play some of the new songs we've been writing over the winter. It's going to be a rocking performance but I will whole heartedly say that about any show we play.
Hammer Records: What message do you want to send to Canadians listening to your music?
Bloody Diamonds: Thanks for listening, we'll see ya'll this fall!
Hammer Records: What do you have coming up?
Bloody Diamonds: Not sure how to answer this one really. Lots. We're always working on something but for right now I think our last answer will be a good enough hint to our *Canadian* fans. You can find our music, upcoming dates, store, social media links and more at bloodydiamonds.com.
