Travis (Time and Pressure – drums)
SPB: What do your parents think of your music?
Travis: This is funny because none of our parents have checked out Time & Pressure -- although James' mom and Dave's family buy our merch!
Personally, my parents have probably came to like 2 or 3 of my shows ever since I was about 16 and playing in bands. I've asked my Dad who is very "country" and my Mom is who is very "middle-aged conservative" what they thought of my music before, and they've always expressed a dislike for the speed and screaming...
My Mom and Dad hardly ask about it, and really show no interest in listening to the actual music, aside from asking for a sticker or t-shirt. Hell, maybe they have jammed our Demo and I am not even aware. But, I can tell you that they're aware of what my band sounds like, the music I've been into for years, and the shows I play/attend. I feel like my Dad thinks it's cool, just not for him -- and my Mom thinks it's silly, and can't understand how I am still into something like hardcore. Either way, they've always been supportive, and never made me feel like they didn't approve.
