We had the good fortune of connecting with SadBois and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi SadBois, how do you define success?
When you think of success, you think of fancy cars and massive mansions. That might be the case for some, but for us, we measure success in other ways. One way we measure success is in our ability to produce music that people enjoy. Having a fan base that loves our music and interacts with us is something that we use to define success. From the beginning of our career as SadBois, we have always strived to become musicians who can entertain and touch the hearts of our fans. We aim to do this every time we produce a song.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
SadBois are a unique group of EDM producers and musicians who blend rock and electronic music into our sound. This sets us apart from other producers in our community. We are most proud of receiving our first label release under AirwaveMusicTV/ARWV. We are especially excited to see what the future holds for our band.

We struggled and overcame many obstacles during this musical journey. It was the farthest thing from being easy. Elias, our main producer, has been producing since 2011. He has been developing the “SadBois” sound for a long time. As a group, we were on the verge of disbanding. Tensions rose and the stress of producing music became something that was overbearing. However, we realized that this is our passion, and overcame this obstacle.

Throughout our many lows and highs, we have learned a lot along the way. We learned to always stay true to ourselves and do what we love; produce beautiful music. We want the world to know that the SadBois are a group of passionate musicians who love to entertain.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If friends came to visit us for a week, we would have a great time. We would go to the local bars and drink, get 1/2 off apps at Applebees, and then go to the beach.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There are tons of people in our life that help and encourage us. For one, our families are super supportive of our music and band as a whole. They are always willing to listen and give feedback. Another group that is supportive is our friends. Every time we show them sneak previews of new music, they go nuts!!! The hype that they give us is out of this world, we would like to shout them out. On a professional music level, there have been many people that we draw inspiration. Two people in the EDM community that we look up to are Illenium and Gryffin. The first time we all saw them live, we knew from then on, we wanted to do THAT. They really transformed us into the musicians we are today. I hope one day we can thank them in person.
