We had the good fortune of connecting with StereoRiots and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi StereoRiots, how do you think about risk?
You have to give anything a try even if there’s a chance you may not succeed. You never know where the roads might take you, but you got to be daring enough to take the initial steps to travel down them first.
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.
We are indie rock band from the Washington D.C. area. A couple members of the band are from Virginia, and one of us is from Maryland. We’re proud that we’ve stuck together all these years, and are still continuing to make music together which is no easy task. A lot of local bands don’t end up staying together for very long. We’ve definitely worked hard and gone through our own set obstacles both internal and external. The main thing we’ve learned is to keep going and keep at it no matter what. But that’s also one of the things that is most challenging.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
There’s a lot of interesting places in Long Beach, which is where we all live at now. There are some neat bars downtown like a place called the The 4th Horsemen, Belmont Shore is a decent area, and the Queen Mary is a cool old haunted ship. That’s a rad site to see. And of course downtown L.A. isn’t too bad of a drive when isn’t traffic godawful lol.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
All thanks to family and friends who have supported us.
