One Question Interviews: Loose Grip Records

Ed Taylor (Loose Grip Records)

SPB: There are infinite benefit compilations available. Yet this one [Love Oakland: A Benefit for those Affected by The Ghost Fire] is different because the cause is so closely connected to musicians themselves. How did you seek out the artists involved with this project considering how personal the subject was to many of them?

Ed: I had just moved to from Oakland to LA . I had three things in mind when putting the comp together. I wanted bands that were active in the Oakland DIY scene, I wanted to find some more well-known bands to hopefully help with sales (since this is a benefit record) and third I've always tried to bring a good mix of music together on the compilations that I've put together.
