Ben Lemieux Covering Matters!

Solo artist Benjamin Lemieux or Ben has been posting cover tunes left and right on YouTube and connecting with everyone else via Facebook. So now he's taken some time to talk about his covering abilities and what else he has in-store.

1. What type of music do you guys play and what is your role in the band? I am the singer of Brookline Drive and we are a Pop Rock band.

2. Your first cover was done by One Direction's "Live While We're Young" why go with this particular song?

When I first heard the song I was hooked. I thought it was so catchy and that it'd be fun to sing!

3. What other cover songs do you plan on doing next?

I just finished up a music video for a mash up of two Justin Bieber songs! Gonna have to check it out to see which two ;)

4. You've had the chance to share the stage with various acts Hot Chelle Rae, Hey Monday, Neon Trees, what were those experiences like and who would be the artists of your dreams to tour or share the same stage?

It's been great to be able to share the stage with such big acts. I can't wait to see what the future brings! I would love to share the stage with Maroon 5. I'd have to be on my A game for that one!

5. Aside from covering songs do you have your own material you have written?

I'm actually writing now. I am putting out my first single this winter. I'm really excited about it.

6. Will you be releasing an EP or full-length with the covers and your own material in the future?

I will release an EP in the spring most likely. Not exactly sure on my time frame so far. You can definitely expect a bunch of music from me.

7. Who are some of your musical influences you really look up to the most?

I really like The Rocket Summer a lot. I respect a lot of different singers and musicians so it's hard to say which I take influence from the most.

8. What else can we expect to see from you guys for the remainder of this year?

As for Brookline Drive, we will be playing our last show of the year December 9th in Boston. After that the band plans on taking a break. As for me I will pushing full steam ahead and you can expect new covers and my fist single along with some sweet shows!

9. Any last words?
