Dane is releasing also a new cd and will be on tour to promote this release, playing shows in his hometown state of Minnesota along with playing surrounding states North Dakota and Wisconsin. Personally, I cannot make the shows but if you do live in the area, I definetly would suggest making a little road trip, it will definetly be worth your time!
I recently got a lucky chance to sit down with Dane via the inter webs and everything was on the table from his favorite snack (he really loves it, as it is all over his 'space) and one of his major inspirations. We even have several surprising, possibly a little bit embarassing for me regarding my past musical choices:
What was the process of coming up with the name Jamestown Story? Has it ever changed before?
It was a completely random name, but we changed it from And Then I Turned Seven so it took some time to figure it out.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
Hmm, the power to make hundred dollar bills so I could buy an island.
What did you want to be when you were ten years old?
A musician or a basketball player.
What has been your favorite venue to play? Your dream one?
Probably Grandma's in Duluth, MN. Dream one is probably The Myth or something.
Who are your major inspirations?
Who would be the top three acts you would love to tour with, if ever given the chance?
John Mayer, Blink 182 and Dashboard Confessional.
If you HAD to classify your music into three little genre boxes, what would they be?
Acoustic, Pop and Emo.
What was the first album you bought? The first concert you went to?
Not sure on the first album, first concert was a country concert. I don't remember which one, I went to a lot of them.
What is your favorite snack/treat?
Dane was great in this interview and you can find his music here on his myspace
