I had heard such good things about working with Lewis Richards & the vibe of the music coming out of 17th Street was so good that I wanted to be a part of it.
Who are your musical influences? And what inspires you?
I’m really influenced by all kinds of music but The Police, Johnny Cash, Bob Marley, Frank Sinatra along with all kinds of classic rock is what I grew up surrounded by. Sublime & the Red Hot Chili Peppers are who made me fall in love with California though. I’m inspired by people who dedicate their lives to doing good things, most of all those people who dedicate their lives to helping animals because they don’t have a voice & are abused horribly all over the world.
What message do you want to put out there for the world through your music?
I don’t know about a specific message, I just write from the heart & from experiences that I’ve gone through. It’s really cool when the songs help people feel good and have a positive & uplifting message but they can’t always be on that vibe because there are too many different emotions going on inside.
What can we expect in the years to come from Pilot Touhill?
I would love to expand the places that I’ve been able to play music in 2013. I’d Love to see Europe & Asia and play music there. I will also be working on new music of course…..what it will sound like….I have no idea but hopefully people will like it!
