1. Let's start at the beginning then. When did the band form?
A: I’m pretty new, so really I was ‘born’ about a year ago
 
2. Who's in the band?
A: Im a solo artist, and I´m using session musicians as for now. I do want to form my own band but that´s hard because my musician friends who I want to work with are all in their own projects.
 
3. Were any of you in bands before?
A: No, I auditioned for a couple, but was never actually in one
 
4. How would YOU describe your sound?
A: I’d say, rock/metal
 
5. What are your musical influences?
A: I have a lot of of influence from the metal/rock bands of the 80’s/90’s, a big influence for me is Lizzy Hale
 
6. What have been up to lately? any new stuff to delight our ears?
A: Lots of songs in the works, my debut single, Lost Heart is being released on June 21, 2024
 
7. How about live dates? What have you been doing and what ya got planned for 2024?
A: Working on lots of songs, hopefully in the near future, I’ll be out doing live gigs
 
8. Name something about yourselves that fans won't know
A: I can make a bet people don’t know I like peanut butter and onion sandwiches ha 
 
9. What's the most embarrassing moment you've had?
A: Ok, so I was at karaoke one night, and this guy came up to me and told me he really liked my singing, I said thank you, and he proceeded to hang out with me at my table… I said I had to go to the bathroom, cause I didn’t recognize this guy and I thought he was being a bit weird haha, when I came out, he was gone I thought, and the karaoke host calls a name up, the guy walks on the stage and I die inside because he had taken his hat and sunglasses off and it was a well known blues musician locally, he sang his dong and pointed and smiles at me because we had met before and I did know him… I think I turned 50 shades of red, thankfully he forgave me for being a bit of a jerk to him.. I honestly thought he was just some creepy guy trying to pick me up haha
 
10. Do you have any superstitions? Any things you do before a show?
A: If I’m singing in front of people, I’ll have paper in front of me and I always draw a mountain range with water, islands, and birds… I find it calming, as for superstitions? I don’t know if it counts, but I beed to arrange my candy according to colour and there must be and even number if each colour if I feel bothered.
 
11. Are there any musicians or bands you'd love to work with?
A: I would really love to work with Lizzy Hale
 
12. Any final thoughts?
A: shameless plug here, Lost Heart is being released June 21, 2024, and you can find me at: https://www.facebook.com/iriandarkwood
