Band Name: Nobody’s Home
Members: Singer/Guitarist Sky Grand, Lead Guitarist/Harmony Vocalist Chris Sestric, Drummer Yuichi Ikeda
How did you come by your band name?
The name Nobody’s Home comes from the disheartening fact that technology is taking over the minds of today’s human race… people are so addicted to their cell phones, their computers, their televisions… we are losing touch with reality and human interaction while becoming more and more addicted to technology…. wait until Virtual Reality hits… Nobody’s Home.
When did you discover your love for music your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
We as a band all discovered our love for music at an early age. The power of music is mythical, it’s our church, our psychologist. it’s how we channel our deepest emotions, fears, joys, anger… we can dive into allegories that reflect our current mental state or poetically wax in a stream of consciousness that helps alleviate and understand the emotion that is bristling to break through the surface.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
Our current style is minimalist driven… less is more… simple is strong… no need to overcomplicate a song or a message… we like it hooky, funky and melodic… you can say that we draw our influences from Nirvana, Foo Fighters, The Doors, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guns N Roses, Metallica, Paul Simon, Tom Petty, Jimi Hendrix, The Pixies, Rage Against the Machine and so many more.
What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist? and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
As with most artists, our greatest challenge is maintaining momentum… you release an album, you play big shows, you make a music video, you play more shows and you hope that you can keep the energy flowing from week to week and month to month without losing any of the positive vibes that you’ve built.
We are currently reconvening after a holiday break and we’re all excited to get our Mojo back in gear. Also auditioning bassists to round our sound… (Our last bassist left a few months ago)
On your current project, How did you come up with the concept?
We just released our latest EP, “Lost in LA”… it’s 4 songs that are biographical in nature while maintaining anonymity within the stories told… we covered Stevie Wonders, Part Time Lover and we’re currently researching Music Video producers to find the best fit to communicate our interpretation of the hit that the legendary songwriter released decades ago.
What impression would you like fans to be left with after experiencing your craft?
We want our fans to walk away from our shows and have our songs spinning in their head. Our hooks and melodies stuck in the memory… we also thrive to put on a live show that is real, is an intense and interactive experience… our energy unites with our fans and in turn, their energy is sent back to us in a never-ending circle of musical love.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
We excel at reaching deep into our souls and being honest… plain and simple.. .the music that you’re hearing from the 3 of us comes from the heart. We have a strong ability to lock ourselves into a room and 1 hour later we have written another song… we write incredibly well together… there are no egos involved in our collaboration and we each understand our roles and how we can contribute to creating a piece of art that is real and genuine.
What are your plans for the near future?
Just released our album as mentioned before… Lost in LA.. you can find in on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and at your local underground music store
Look for a music video for Part Time Lover in the next few months and we’re ready to bring in the right bassist to help bring our music to the masses
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Shout outs to all the artists in the world who strive each and every day to cultivate their craft, to evolve, to grow, to communicate and in their own special way, change the world.
Shout out to our parents who have instilled the power of belief in ourselves and that with hard work and passion, ANYTHING is possible.
