AMERICAN GOTHIC ROCK.

T

Natalie Durkin (TribeLA Magazine): Give yourself and your work a tagline and tell us why.

Bevin:  “Empowerment and Activism through Music”. I truly believe that each person can unlock their potential through their own personal creativity.

R

ND: What got you started in music? What is the reason you are here today?

B: I got started by performing in musical theatre. I loved taking the audience on a journey through music. Those experiences definitely inspired me to become a songwriter and start telling my own stories.

I

ND: How do you hope to influence your audience?

B: I hope to influence my audience through my lyrics and perhaps inspire them to create in their own ways.

B

ND: What do you do when your creativity is blocked?

B: I find that getting out of your comfort zone is great for the flow of creative energy. Trying new things, going to an art museum, or being in nature.

E

ND: What fires you up and gives you energy?

B: I love getting out and seeing live music of all genres, seeing theatre and performing with my band.

L

ND: Can you tell us a little known fact?

B: I recently completed my first film called “Incall” (writing and directing) that will be coming out early next year.

A

ND: Where is your favorite place in Los Angeles and why?

B: My favorite place in Los Angeles is the Lake Shrine Temple. It’s such a beautiful and serene place to meditate, write and enjoy nature.

About Lake Shrine

M

ND: How do you make music? Briefly chronicle your creative process.

B: I make music in many different ways. Sometimes the creative spark starts with just a line of poetry or an idea forms from something that I heard in the news. Other times it starts with a melody in my head that I just can’t get out!

U

ND: What is coming up?

B: I am in the planning stages of a few tour dates in the Spring.

S

ND: Describe your style – musically and otherwise.

B:  I describe my music as “American Gothic Rock”, as I don’t fit in to the traditional music genres.

My songs explore the inner and outer landscapes of the American Dream…. How we see the world and how the world sees us. I love to write about psychological archetypes and spiritual aspects of self.

I would describe my personal style as rock ‘n roll meets timeless bohemian.

I

ND: What is the best advice you’ve received and the best advice you can impart onto us?

B: Be yourself. Comparing yourself to others is never the path to success. Every person has unique and powerful gifts and talents. Success will come from your own individuality and vision.

C

ND: Any closing words?

B: Music is Medicine. In these turbulent times, I believe music will be an important force to change, heal and open hearts and minds.
