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

Hi The Deaf Pilots, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
Being persistent and flexible are two big habits that have helped us continue forward. The world is constantly changing and it forces you to adapt to new environments.

For example, the Covid-19 pandemic forced us to learn how to use live-streaming platforms on YouTube and Zoom to play for our fans. In order to make this change happen, we had to move from solving one problem to the next until all of our gear functioned correctly.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What makes our band unique is our ability to switch gears from being a tight trio playing catchy, driving, single-type songs to taking our fans on a 20 minute improvised jam adventure.

Getting to where we are today has been a struggle much like every artist’s journey. We are facing many common challenges that bands face. For example, raising money to afford recording, coordinating time to practice and getting our fans to our shows. But it’s all worth it in the end because when it comes together, it’s magic.

Along the way, we’ve learned to just keep playing and grinding. As long as you keep moving forward, doors will open.

We would like people to know that our songs are relevant to the times and that we write about the human experience. We hope that people relate to the themes of our music and we’re excited to release our latest record later this summer.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
What many people don’t know about Los Angeles is that it’s a great area for outdoor activity. Runyon Canyon, Santa Monica State Beach, Stoney Point and Wisdom Tree are all great places to explore if you are interested in hiking, climbing, swimming and laying in the sun.

Los Angeles also has countless types of cuisine from all around the world. If there is a type of food that you can’t find here, dm us and let us know that we’re wrong. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We would like to give a shout out to Carlos Cruz, Christian Delgado and Mauricio Martinez for helping us record our latest album which will be released later this year.

We would also like to thank Simone Julian and Jenny McNabb for singing back up vocals and giving the songs that extra sauce that makes them pop!
