One Question Interviews: Loud Boyz

Kenny Brown (Loud Boyz-vocals)

SPB: How has your musical taste evolved over the years? Do you think your “high school self” would appreciate the music you make now?

Brown: I'm pretty much exactly the same! Loud Boyz is derived from the same punk bands we grew up listening to in high school. Before this band I was in a Dinosaur Jr style rock band and then a chillwave band, which was cool, but not something I ever thought I'd be into playing. Loud Boyz is where everything comes full circle for me, it's bringing me back to what I fell in love with when I was 16. Of course over the years I have found influence in a lot of new music, especially since moving to DC when I was 18. I always loved Bad Brains and Minor Threat, but living here has given me a newfound respect for what DC was/is about. Although, I listen to a lot of r&b now so I'm sure that my young self would be confused by that, otherwise I'm pretty much the exact same person, minus the metalcore breakdowns! 

Loud Boyz actually played a show earlier this month with Darkest Hour and Dead to Fall, who were two of my favorite bands when I was about 15. Between that show, playing with Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg, and opening for Buzzcocks, I'd say that my high school self wouldn't believe what I'm doing at 28!
