Today we’d like to introduce you to The BoomBachs.
The BoomBachs, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
The band formed as a music composition project at the University of North Texas in 2009. Eventually, the band became a means to relieve the stress from our studies. We began playing shows in 2010, and we recorded our first project in 2011 and have been producing our own music ever since. The BoomBachs combine hip-hop, jazz, and rock in a way that we like to call Space Gospel. Space Gospel originates from the band’s desire to explore beyond the usual chord progressions and lyrical content, to pursue the less explored areas of each genre it draws from. The BoomBachs believe in taking hip-hop in a new direction.
During the past few years, The BoomBachs have been developing and honing their craft by writing, performing, recording, mixing, and mastering their own music. They believe that bringing musicality to a genre known for loops and samples is what sets them apart.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
The BoomBachs takes a unique approach to creating hip-hop music. We take inspiration from every type of music that we’ve ever listened to and include it in the process of creating. For example, Marcus(keyboardist) listens to mostly hip hop, while Dave(Bass) are up on rock music. Those influences make their way into our music one way or another. We hope that people hear our music and get the chance to experience life without being distracted by thoughts if only for a short while.
What responsibility, if any, do you think artists have to use their art to help alleviate problems faced by others? Has your art been affected by issues you’ve concerned about?
The goal of the artist has always been to provide something for people to experience. Whether that art is to shed light on a social or political issue, or just to make people get up and dance the goal is the same.
We have a song called the fighters which is dedicated to a group called the Shropshire foundation. The organization teaches children from war-torn countries to play music and have an education. I wanted to write this song for them because I felt like they were doing an extraordinary thing and I wanted to bring light to it.
Events and issues can and will be a source of inspiration for art and will always be a part of the art we create.
