ICYMI: David Schmitt Talks Breathe Carolina, His Dream Tour Bus & More!
Hey music lovers,
I feel like most of you have been fans of David Schmitt and Breathe Carolina since the start. If so, here is an interview I did with David recently that you will love…we talk tour, fans and he even empties his pockets.
For the people who have not checked you out, describe your music in 3 words!
Fast, Melodic, Energetic!
You guys have evolved over the years, what is the hardest part of adjusting to changes in the industry?
I think everyone adjusting to us is the hardest thing, like we’re entering new platforms and a new world and we just hope everyone hangs on for the ride!
You just started The Friend Zone Tour, are there any dates in particular that you are stoked for?
Always love playing the hometown ( Denver) New York and L.A. are always up there as well as Texas!
What is one song you heard this year that you wish you wrote?
Duke Dumont “waves”
If you could design your dream tour bus, what would it look like?
The bus that’s in the spice girls movie where everyone has their own big rooms!
Pick one song off ‘Savages’ and tell us what it means to you and what the writing process was like!
“Shots Fired” about going through letting someone in the life go and how it affects you. Anytime you lose someone to anything, it’s hard and the process is emotional.
What is running through your mind the second you first hit the stage? Do you have any pre-show rituals?
I just get pumped! Seeing everyone out in the crowd is a feeling like no other. We don’t really have any more show rituals, to be honest… we just get hyped up!
Empty your pockets…what’s in them?
Phone, wallet, crumpled receipts!
What advice can you give the kids reading this who are trying to follow their dreams?
Make sure you stay true to yourself and be careful who you trust along the way. Don’t forget why you started doing it in the first place!
Fast forward to one year from today, where do you see yourself and the band?
We want to be playing all the major festivals; we want to be every where we can be. Still having the time of our lives!
