OddFellas Talks of Old Times and New Times Involving Music!

Alternative progressive rockers ODDFELLAS have had quite a backstory, releasing some content then taking it offline, to go back and write all new material towards an upcoming EP release. The band goes into talks about their music, history, and future plans.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The band started out as a 2 piece with just guitar and drums in 2016. We did a lot of gigs in our home town and got our name pretty well established. Eventually, we added some members and also got rid of some members once we started traveling. We started this line up in the band less than a year ago.

Drake Fisher-Front man
Mason Galaviz-Drums
Dako Ryan-Guitar
Davey Ellis-Bass Guitar

We all had our own thing going on before we got together. As soon as we got together we immediately started writing music, doing gigs every weekend, and traveling to festivals. We’ve been non stop working our asses off.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

We’re just some weird ass dudes, so we call ourselves oddfellas. I said it one day, and it stuck!

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Pampa, Texas. The scene is pretty good for the size of the town. We also come from the Amarillo music scene. The scene there is definitely weird. If you don’t fit into a certain clique, you will be hated. We love all the local bands. (A special Case) (Leddit Ride) (TheLeo).

4. How would you describe your style?

Original...music that just feels good.... Rock N’ Roll. We also get really psychedelic at points. All in all it is very unique.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We released an EP early in our time as a band but have since taken it offline with plans of a new EP this Spring. Our single “Reason” is out now on all platforms. You can except true words, and great music behind those words. We speak about real shit, we don’t just come up with songs that we think will be hits. We almost don’t care what people are going to think, and that helps a lot. People love that.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Always. We are going back into the studio later this month! You can expect a 5 to 6 song EP to be  released mid 2019!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We’re going to have a busy year but nothing announced just yet. We plan to just travel every weekend like we have been doing. If opportunities come, will will take them! Right now we’re just going with the flow until we get all of our new music recorded! You can always count on us traveling and constantly doing shows! No matter where they’re at....

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

I think our biggest plan is to just stick together. Now a days you hardly see bands that stick together for long periods of time. We want to play huge festivals and just show people what we’ve got. We have big dreams that are slowly turning to reality. We also plan to go on tour with Pearl Jam one of these days. Hmm, we plan to win a Grammy.. we plan to be the best we can fucking be.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Our first answer would obviously be to come to a show! But you can also listen to our music on all streaming platforms online!

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I’d like them to remember how much heart, drive and passion we put into it. I’d like to remember everything about each song, shit idk.
