Here’s a new track from Wolf + Lamb, Crew Love artist Nick Monaco and their partner in island life David Marston – a Jamaica native. On the vocals is Charlie from Soul Clap. The guys made this last year while chilling in Jamaica.
Tell us about your musical journey?
Man it’s been fun, long and going on 15 years! We both loved music from when we’re young, but had no talent so we became DJ’s, somewhere along the way we figured it out. It’s never ending and we’re grateful to be on it.
Describe the reactions you get from onlookers when you’re performing? How does this make you feel?
Most people are just smiling and dancing. Some people give us a heart or a thumbs up. Sometimes people boo and ask to play hip hop. Look, when you play two hours you get a lot of reactions. Sometimes you’ll get five different reactions from the same person over the course of the set. Bottom line, we don’t get too caught up in that and focus on what we’re there to do.
Can you share your most memorable busking experience with us? (If you ever busked?)
Is that like husking corn?
At Tmrw.Tday, we aim to promote conscious living. for you, what does it mean to live consciously?
For us it means trying to live in a small footprint. Not drinking from water bottles. Not making waste. Trying to be in harmony with the world. Not supporting shitty companies.
Not voting republican, because they seem to enjoy ruining the planet.
Do you believe music has the power to inspire change? If so, how?
Anything can inspire change if people are moved. We like music because it’s a happy medium and can do the job with a smile. It’s why we’ve been focused on positive, heartfelt and joyful music in the last decade instead of following the trend for dark, or monotonous music that just puts people in a dark trance.
How has travelling influenced you?
It’s opened us up to the world and helped us transcend our little New York bubble.
It’s also inspired to push forward with our message of hope, love and global unity knowing everywhere we go, now reaching deep into the different pockets of the world, the human experience is the same.
Can you share with us your fondest travel memory?
Flying 20 hours to Asia for the first time and meeting fans who have been touched by our work is the best memories of travel. The rest of them are usually about exhaustion and achey backs from the days and weeks of travel on end.
What are you hoping to get out of your time at Tmrw.Tday?
I (Gadi) have a deep, personal connection for Negril, I was there when I was younger and connected with the place. At the time I don’t think I could have imagined returning as a headlining performer on the same beach 25 years later. I’m happy to bring my partner Zev who’s heard me talk about this magical place for years.
