Savage Garden Tribute Group

 

Savage Garden Tribute Group's lead singer Lee took time to answer some question for all the Atlantic Radio Uk listeners so they can read more bout the band, on how they got into music and there biggest influences and much more. So here is the interview for you all to read.

 

This is Chas from Atlantic Radio Uk and I’m here to interview the wonderful and talented lead vocalist of the Savage Garden Tribute Group – Lee Knell


Hello Lee thanks for taking the time to do this interview and to let all the Atlantic Radio Uk listeners about you and your music.

 

Chas - Can you tell the listeners where you’re from?

Lee - Essex, UK

 

Chas - When and how did you first become interested in the music of Savage Garden?

Lee - About 15 years ago, I met my best friend through listening to their music as he lent me the ‘Affirmation’ album. We both connected really well vocally and musically. I was going through a dark stage in life and it helped shine a little light on things. It was the ‘pick me up’ that was needed, which was strange considering it was only a collection of songs. We formed a tribute which lasted about a year before we both decided to persue other things. We are still best of friends to this day, however the band line up has changed with myself only being an existing member.

 

Chas - How long have you been writing music?

Lee - I dabble with various instruments but Daniel (guitarist) has been playing for years. He can even play the guitar with his toes and his teeth!

 

Chas - Does anyone in your family play music?

Lee - No. I like to think I’m the only talented one in the family haha!

 

Chas - What are your musical influences?

Lee - Personally, I like rock music, cheesy pop and dance. So you could find me listening to anything from Bon Jovi to Steps!

 

Chas - If you could sing with one artist or band who would it be and why?

Lee - Apart from the obvious (Savage Garden/Darren Hayes) it would have to be Bon Jovi or Robbie Williams. Both own the stage and have so much energy. The atmosphere is always electric.

 

Chas - What kinds of places have you played music so far?

Lee - I’ve helped artists fulfil their dream and assisted them playing at venues such as Wembley Arena. This year I’d like to think it’s our turn to gain some of that performance experience at great venues. We have our first major concert coming up in November, and there are talks about a one off performance at the O2 Arena in the summer. We are also booked for the SoundStock Festival 2015.

 

Chas - If you could play one venue in the world where it be?

Lee - Wembley Stadium haha! But being realistic I would love to do one of the major festivals like V-Festival or Reading, something like that.

 

Chas - What else do you do besides play music?

Lee - Professional Zombie Killer (it’s true!)

 

Chas - Were you influenced by old records & tapes? Which ones?

Lee - Not really. I actually dislike most of the stuff I had to listen to growing up, although I do appreciate the music. Genisis, Abba and Simply Red were always played and I hardly ever listen to them through choice anymore

 

Chas - What was your first album?

Lee - My first album I listened to properly and got hooked on was ‘The Corrs – Talk on Corners’. I still have it somewhere. I loved that Irish pop feel.

 

Chas - If you have played any venues, do you get nervous before a performance?

Lee - I’m generally nervous the night before. I hardly sleep because I’m a perfectionist – even in rehearsals lol. But on the day there is too much going on to think about nerves and eventually you have to turn them into positive energy or it affects your performance

 

Chas - What advice would you give to beginners who are nervous?

Lee - That they shouldn’t see nerves as a bad thing, but a positive thing. Learn to control them and feed off them and eventually nerves become your friend as sometimes it’s nerves that will carry you through a performance if used correctly

 

Chas - How often and for how long do you practice?

Lee - Twice a week. It’s equally important to rest your voice as it is to practise so I don’t over do it!

 

Chas - Where do you hope to be in say 5 years or more?

Lee - Working on original music even if it is in a similar style to the music we are performing now. Nothing better than people connecting with something you have personally written.

 

Chas - If listeners want to get in touch with you or want to hear more of you music how can they get in touch?

Lee -

 

Chas - Is there anything you would like to say to the wonderful Atlantic Radio Uk listeners?

Lee - Always be yourself! Unless you can be Batman – then be Batman.

 

I would like to thank you Lee for taking the time to do this interview for all his fans and our listners. Everyone at Atlantic Radio Uk and the listeners would like to wish you all the best in the future. We will continue to support you and your music and we hope to have you back on Atlantic Radio Uk in the near future to let everyone know how your are getting on.
