One Question Interviews: Driftoff

Eric Jernigan (Driftoff)

SPB: Would you license your music for use in another medium if given the opportunity?

Jernigan: We're open to the idea so long as we can stand behind the content of the film or commercial. The fact is, many bands in our genre have come to accept that the formerly modest goal of recouping recording costs is now pretty tough. Even going on tour is an uphill battle, financially speaking. Were we to take a small licensing paycheck we'd use that cash to make another album or to buy flights for an overseas tour. This band and many like us are labors of love and we've seen good ones drop like flies over the years as members get burnt out funding van repairs and covering merch bills with their day jobs. We wanna play music and tour until we're dead so we'll explore any avenue that may help facilitate that mission.
