Congrats to Alih Jey for being the first Les Paul Girl of the Week!! I got to ask her some questions and she was kind enough to answer them, so here it goes:
Tell us about your musical experience
I've been doing music since before I was in my mom's womb in some other lifetime when I was a squirrel! In this lifetime, I learned how to do harmony at three years old with my two older sisters because they would force me too, actually. But music has always come naturally to me, since my whole family are musicians, and when I started writing songs I was sure I wanted to pursue it professionally.
What would you like people to know about your band? Website?
You can check us out at www.myspace.com/alihjey or Alih Jey Official Site . We just wanna rock it out and get frilly underwear thrown at us on stage. It's just fun to play, we don't care about fitting into any particular style or mold.
Who are your biggest musical influences?
The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Smiths, P.J Harvey, Rufus Wainwright, Janis Joplin, Radiohead, U2, Coldplay, The Killers, Soda Stereo, Fito Paez, Julieta Venegas, The Pretenders, Blondie, Nirvana, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Police, Sylvio Rodriguez,
Juan Luis Guerra...
What do you love most about your Les Paul/SG?
It looks like a girl my man and I know.. and it looks beautiful and sounds "fierce".
Funniest thing that happened to you on the road, stage or backstage?
My Les Paul fell off while I was playing.
Where do you see yourself a few years from now?
Working at Pizza Hut. Actually, I just prefer to have no plan and to do what I love till' I die, whether I have lots of fame and fortune or none. By the way, I'm honored to be the LesPaul girl of the week, it means I'm cool. Yay!
