• RedGorilla on the Run

RedGorilla Music Fest Artist of the Day: "VOLK"

Artist Name: VOLK

Hometown: Nashville

What's your biggest struggle as an independent artist?

Balancing everything; trying to still be an artist and write good songs when you spend most of your time being your own booker, promoter, manager, social media expert, basically everything a label used to do...its a struggle to keep it all churning. And then working "real" jobs to pay for all of it. Sometimes we play music.

Why RedGorilla? what do you hope to accomplish during your time in Austin?

It was a festival suggested on Indieonthemove.com which has been an awesome resource for us. In Austin, we hope to sell out to whoever will let us sell out, if selling out is still even a thing, so we can quit our day jobs.

How did you hear about the festival?


Favorite venue to play in the country?

Springwater in Nashville, TN.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?

Desperation. The ominous feeling that we need to quit our soul crushing day jobs ASAP.

What are some artists you look up to?

#Sturgil Simpson and #TheKillers.
