Q & A WITH THIRTEEN MILE
Q: Who are your influences:?
A: My first influences are from the late 1990s listening to nu metal/rock (Linkin Park, Audioslave, Foo Fighters, RATM, Metallica). In the mid 2000s I was influenced by electronic/dance music (The Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia), and for the last few years a dance/rock combination. Some of my favourite artists include: The XX, Arcade Fire, Chase & Status, Thirty Seconds to Mars, The Cure and The Whip.
Q: How did Thirteen Mile start?
A: I started making music in 2010 when I created backing tracks to practice along to when playing the bass guitar. I learnt more about music production in the following years when I taught myself how to write, mix and produce using Ableton Live and Cubase.
Q: Why the name Thirteen Mile?
A: When I created my first track I was looking for a vocalist to work with in the Greater Manchester area. On a music collaboration website, I used the search criteria: Manchester plus a thirteen-mile radius. I liked the sound of Thirteen Mile, so stuck with it.
Q: Do you have any other interests?
A: I’m a regular listener of Podcasts / Radio Shows and I’m always searching for new artists that create new exciting music. Some of the podcasts I enjoy are: BBC Introducing, Exposure, UKF, Solid Steel and many more.
