Interview With A Moments Notice W. Greg Molina

What was the beginning point for your music career? How did it all start? 

My musical career started during my years as a teen, i was always into music. My mother was always singing so naturally i began singing and branching out with many different styles of music. Linkin Park was the first album that i owned and over the time of me listening a few friends got me into a bunch of different bands. I spent year working on learning many other instruments over the years and so began my musical career. 

Was there any bumps on the road? What kind of challenges did you have to deal with? 

I personally feel like there is always bumps in the road and the more that we push through the easier it gets. I overcame a lot of self doubt during my musical career. Comparison is the enemy in this road. You can only prepare yourself so much until you are where you want to be. I believe in time tha music can help you as long as you put in the hard work and never give up then its fine. 

What was the most fulfilling and satisfying moment so far? 

I would honestly have to say this band is the most satisfied i have ever been. Countless podcast, interviews, and working with so many talented bands. The journey is always fulfilling and satisfying it self. 

How would you describe the music that you typically create? 

I would say that its metalcore to purest of forms. When metalcore became a thing the music was a little bit of the influences of so many different types of genres. I like to think that we have a perfect blend of styles. 

What is your creative process like? 

Typical my creative process is a lot of playing with different styles of riffs and recoding them. I like to take them all and then piece together a song based off of what the band is going for stylistically wise. 

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be? 

I would say the ability to play should not be limited to bands that are only signed. I have heard a few times if you were signed then we would totally put you on this show or festival and honestly its a bummer when you are in the early stages of music. 

If you were asked to give a piece of advice to upcoming bands, what would that be? 

I would say take your time, put more into recording and practicing then anything. Sacrifice is the key to this because if you are willing to give up all your free time to make sure that the music is great then you are on the right path. Being driven and pushing yourself is always a plus. 

What has been the best performance of your career so far?

I would say when i was 17 the best performance was a show that i played in Elk Grove, California and the show was packed but the crowd engagement was amazing. 

If you didn’t become a musician, what would you be doing now? 

I probably would still be doing hair which i do as my day job. I enjoy working with people to get a overall goal. 

What is new with the band at the moment? What are you currently working on and would like to share with the world? 

The new stuff is all in the works, currently waiting for our music video to be finished with a record in the works. I am working on getting us on some amazing shows and building so much more of a fan base so we can meet you all!
