Sophie K of Total Rock Radio conducted an interview with the Norwegian seven-string guitarist/singer/songwriter The Commander-In-Chief at the Bloodstock Open Air festival, which is being held August 9-12 at Catton Park, Derbyshire in the United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.
The Commander-In-Chief‘s “Dropout” video was filmed last year in Milan, Italy with producer Elia Turra. This new version of the song was remixed by Sterling Winfield (PANTERA, HATEBREED, HELLYEAH) in 2011. He later went on to produce The Commander-In-Chief‘s debut EP, “Evolution”.
“Evolution” was released digitally on February 15 via Commander Records/The Commander-In-Chief Ltd.
“Evolution” track listing:
04. Let It Go
In a 2010 interview with Metal Express Radio, The Commander-In-Chief stated about her music, “I used to call it hybrid rock; the power of rock with the message of punk, and the catchiness of pop inspired by metal techniques. NOW my music has taken a more heavy direction than last year, so it’s less punk and more metal.”
Regarding her name, The Commander-In-Chief, she said, “I wanted a powerful artist name, since I’ve always been doing my own thing and still am. I do all the songwriting, guitar playing, singing and I write all the lyrics. For the first demo I made in Chicago I also made my own animated music video which generated quite a buzz on MySpace and gave me all my first fans. I also created illustrations for all my songs, mixing the music with visual arts. I don’t do that anymore though, as I just don’t have the time.”
