One Question Interviews: Badlands

Adrian Tenney (Badlands, ex-Spokenest)

SPB: How did you get started in Badlands?

Tenney: Badlands (as a solo project) started when playing my music with other people ended.

I had been writing music in numerous other bands with my friends, and although it was super fun, it was always very hard to coordinate! Gradually it became more difficult, or impossible to collaborate with people (friends moved away, people got new jobs etc.) and as that happened, it became more of a necessity to record and perform on my own.

I've never felt the same kind of energy playing on my own as I do playing in a band, and I do miss that, but everything is so much more under my control now. At this point in my old (not a teenager anymore) age, it's worth it to not feel totally exhausted by all the elements of performing.
