How and when did you start in the Lebanese music scene?
We started at The Christmas Mission 2014 at Quadrangle.

Who does your current lineup consist of?
Joey Semaan РGuitar & Vocals
Kevin Semaan – Bass
Roy Andraos – Guitar
Joe Chamata – Drums

What style do you perform? Do you perform cover songs or play originals?
You can say that we play rock, we add some covers to our set to spice it up, but we’re now focusing on originals.

Who are your influences?
We enjoy everything that sounds nice to the four of us, to name a few; starting from the good old days in the 70s like Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Deep Purple, The Beatles, Pink Floyd… Going to the 80-90s like Guns n Roses, Scorpions, to recently bands like Alter Bridge, Muse, and Porcupine Tree…

What is your purpose behind performing and making music?
We’re doing what we love, it’s our passion.

What do you think of the Lebanese music scene?
The scene has ups and downs, most people are drifting towards commercial music and rather go to a nightclub instead of going to a concert. They should experience more often the thrill of live music and appreciate it.

What can we expect from you at Summer Fusion 2016?
Hopefully things you’ve never heard.

What are your plans for the future?
Currently, our next plan is releasing a new album to be written and recorded. We’re putting up ideas and material and making new tunes.
