1. Tell us about your band and what do you do for your band.
My name is Corey, I do vocals and play guitar for my band Grass Giant. We are a 3 piece Psych-Rock/Doom Metal concept band. We’ve created a soon to be released EP telling the story of a world made of Cannabis and it’s inhabitants.
2. When did you decide you wanted to be in a band?
I think it’s like 90% of kids dreams at one point to be in a band but in my early teens my best friend got me into playing guitar and we would always try to start a band but in a small southern town the few musicians there were didn’t listen to what we did.
3. What is different about being a musician than you imagined?
That anyone can do it. As life wears you down you lose that teenage optimism so I waited until my late 20s thinking that I wasn’t ready or good enough. I found out that I was very wrong so if you’re reading this and you aren’t sure just throw yourself out there and do it man.
4. What gear do you use and why?
I’m cheap, we all love to scour pawn shops and look for deals so the majority of what I use is a little banged up but it adds character. I’ll run an Epiphone 335 into a Sunn O))) Beta Bass 2×15 and a Crate Blue DooDoo half stack on the clean channels then slam them with fuzz pedals.
