One Question Interviews: Great Reversals

Aaron Whitfield (Great Reversals – vocals)

SPB: If you could experiment in any one genre that's far removed from what you do now, what would it be?

Whitfield: I feel a little ashamed to say it, but other than "singing" in a hardcore band, I don't play any other instruments. I've wanted to dabble in drumming or bass-ing, but between career stuff and family stuff I just can't find time to tinker. I think I have a decent sense of rhythm, so that's why I've daydreamed about those instruments. Anyone who knows me should be aware my favorite band is the haunting, molasses-paced, Low, from Duluth, Minnesota. For 15 years now they've been my household's soundtrack to the changing colors in fall and our bleak Michigan winters. Low, along with the sounds of key softie-bands like Iron and Wine, Kings of Convenience, and one of my favorite Michigan bands, Bunkbed Nights, have always made me want to do a slow, stripped-down, vocally-driven band. Perhaps even the classic husband-wife duo! I dream. Perhaps in old age there will be time to do such things, or maybe whenever Great Rev bites the dust.
