Q1, Would you like to introduce yourself?
My name is Greg Webber and I’m the songwriter and frontman for the band. I’m from a small place called Keswick, NB and now live in Fredricton. If you’ve heard of Fredericton in the news it will be for two reasons. The first is we have been flooded pretty bad the last few years and the second is we just elected a female Green Party candidate. Ying and yang.
Q2, Do you know how any of your former teachers have reacted to your work?
A few of them have come to our shows and bought the record. I actually teach with some of them so it’s pretty crazy to experience them digging the music. I don’t think they approve of the cursing though.
Q3, If you could relive one moment in your life, which one would it be?
I’d like to relive a summer night when I was 14 on a small bridge with my friend Josh who is no longer with us. We had an acoustic guitar and some book bags full of fun. Good times.
Q4, What causes would you actually fight for?
No interest on student loans. Free access to abortions. Equal pay. Anything to do with maintaining the freedoms we have in Canada.
Q5, What was the last record you bought?
Jeremy Dutcher at his show yesterday.
Q6, When was the last time you laughed until you cried?
With the band during breakfast. It’s too hard to explain, but we have the collective maturity of a barn cat.
Q7, Where do you draw the line with publicity shots?
Q8, And, most importantly, what is your favourite type of cookie?
Peanut butter. As a teacher, peanuts are like contraband, so it’s the rarest of cookies.
