We had the good fortune of connecting with Tindal Muzic and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tindal Muzic, what role has risk played in your life or career?
As a band we see risk as a way to push ourselves beyond our comfort zone. Taking risks has allowed us to imagine a broader scope of what we thought was possible and opened us up to new experiences that have been some of the best things we have done in our career to date. From deciding to become a band and recording our first studio album, to playing on stages we had previously dreamed of like Crescent Ballroom, to opening up for artists we admire like Giveon and Lindy Vision. Taking risks has shown us what we are capable of while allowing us to build the confidence we need to fully embrace our talents.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
We are a musical duo consisting of a percussionist, and singer songwriter. We both grew up with music being such a big part of our lives that the transition from being music consumers to music artists happened naturally for both of us. We arrange, write and play all of our own music that is inspired by many different genres. We allow ourselves to create what feels right at the time we create it, but mostly our style tends to emulate pop, rnb and soul. We are most excited for our upcoming album which we feel really encompasses the energy and aura of our sound as a duo. We are most proud that we are making music that we love, working on projects that excite us, and reaching a bigger audience everyday.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
La Bohemia, El Charro Hipster Bar and Cafe, Valley Bar, Ziggy’s, Monroe’s Hot Chicken, The Pemberton Phoenix, El Norteno, Crescent Ballroom, The Phoenix Art Museum, Matt’s Big Breakfast, Futuro, Found’Re, Papago Park, Tempe Towne Lake Botanical Gardens. There’s so many places we’d love to list, La Bohemia would we get the day/week started out right wherever we would decide to go next!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Shoutout to Girls Rock Phoenix, it is where we met volunteering many years ago. We’d also love to give a shoutout to El Charro Hipster Bar and Cafe for allowing us a space to always feel welcomed and supported as local musicians. There are so many wonderful musicians and artists in Arizona we’ve met and have had the pleasure to know throughout our journey. We’d love them to know to keep going and thank you for creating, we are all a part of something unique and impactful.
