4 Questions Featuring T-rev Hawley
Q: What’s your earliest musical memory?
Between the ages of 7 and 12, I would visit my Grandparents in Lombard and I would watch The Sound of Music… quite often. They did not own too many movies or cared for regular TV; they were okay with me watching that particular film though.
I fell in love with it; I remember wishing I could sing or at least have an Austrian accent!
Q: What’s the most unusual instrument you’ve played?
All idiophile instruments are pretty strange. As a drummer I find it odd to spend so much money on items only to be struck with sticks, mallets, or my own hands.
Q: Do you have a good luck charm or some kind of ritual before a performance?
It is guaranteed that I will get stage fright; I am told I hide it well. Most of the time I try to be alone (when I can) and shake off my nerves. I also allow myself one drink before playing.
Q: Share with us some of your musical guilty pleasures!
Wait, I already admitted to loving The Sound of Music! Alright, might as well throw in my love for EDM and 80’s pop too!
