Ourtunez Backstage Pass: Independence Drive

A rigorous touring schedule can be tough on any band, but it seems to be the best way to connect and create new fans. “I would love to earn the fans first to justify going on tour, but I’m also a realist and you can’t impress new people as much online as you can with a constant touring schedule.” It’s tough, but live music is the one way to weed out the real talent from the phony guys.


“I find there are less true “musicians” in the world and way more wannabes,” they said when we talked about the face of Rock and Roll today. It comes down to the lyrics. “Lyrical content is sinking fast, Its fallen WAY to far.” The complexity of lyrics from the greats like Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones seem to be too much for kids today. “It sounds foreign to them because they are so used to hearing easily digestible junk.”


With Ourtunez, we keep all that junk in the trash. Original content is all we play, so if you’re looking for some wishy-washy cover band, then look elsewhere. Head on over to www.ourtunez.com to check out their LP Star City Masters and you can hear them on the Indie Rock station!
