Please list all of your band members and their roles in the band.
Phil Freeman - Vocals/Bass, Ben Guiles - Guitar, Jonny Ross - Drums
For starters, what bands were you guys a part of prior to Small Town Titans? How long has the band been around?
Numerous other smaller projects for sure. Small Town Titans have been together for 6 and half years.
What’s the origin of that name and have you changed the band’s name before?
We got our name from Phil. He had had the name in his back pocket so to speak since middle school. We haven't changed the name ever.
Who writes your songs? What are the main themes or topics for most of your songs and do you think these topics will change over time?
All three of us write songs together usually. It's a very collaborative process. There aren't really any rules to what we write songs about. It always draws from real life experiences and emotions. I'm sure we'll change what we write about as well. That's simply a part of growing as artists in my opinion.
What bands are currently inspiring the music that you’re making?
Anyone on Spotify's "Dirty Rock" playlist haha. Highly Suspect, Royal Blood, new Foo Fighters, late 70's rock, etc.
Was there a particular band/artist or concert that inspired you to start a band?
Not one in particular. The first "big" show I saw was Velvet Revolver. It changed my life for sure. I can tell you that!
What do you do to prepare for a show? Any flexing, exercises, ect …
I'll stretch a few minutes before a show if I can. I actually get very calm. I like to keep to myself and prepare to go berserk when I hit the stage.
What has been the biggest highlight of the band’s career so far?
Getting added to an official rock n' roll Spotify playlist. It's the new radio, and we're honored to have gotten such amazing exposure with that.
If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would they be and why?
Geez! So many...Foo Fighters for sure. Motley Crue in the 80's. For like, one day just to see how they DIDN'T die haha. Highly Suspect would be a dream come true. I'll give you Nickelback too. I've heard amazing things from acts that have toured with them. They apparently have a LOT of fun.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thanks for all of your support at Kill The Music. We'll be hitting the road in 2018 and we can't wait to see everyone!
