8 Questions with Jeffrey Lovell
Where are you from?
I’m from Southern California and have lived in Orange County for the last 25 years.
How long have you been making music?
I’ve been playing guitar for about 27 years now. I wrote a couple of songs for my old punk band “Hated Generation” back in the late 90’s/early 00’s, but I only started recording my own solo music at the end of 2022.
Who are the musicians involved in your project?
I am the only musician at the moment. I would love to collaborate with other people, but it’s just me for now.
Who are your biggest musical influences?
My musical influences come from everywhere, but I’d say the biggest influences are UFO, Rainbow/Deep Purple, Lagwagon and the Beatles. I listen to mostly classic and hard rock now, but I also love old school punk rock, 90’s/early 00’s rap, blues and alternative/indie.
What is your greatest non-musical influence?
My parents have been a big influence on me growing up, being inspired by their hard work and putting food on the table for the family.
What inspired you to create this project?
I had this chord progression I’ve been playing around with for a while and was finally able to create something special with it by adding the extra guitar parts. This song came out quite differently than I expected, but I’m very proud of it and I think it’s a great instrumental song.
What are your plans for the future (musically)?
I plan to keep releasing music and hopefully will have an album ready later this year. I am just getting started in this phase of my music career and look forward to creating wonderful music that everyone will enjoy.
Is there anything else you would like to say?
I am just trying to get my music out for the whole world to experience. Everyone has their own unique taste in music and hopefully mine will add to other people’s
