Almost Awake: an Interview

By Alyanna Harina

Fairly new to the music scene, up and coming band Almost Awake is looking to do big things this upcoming year. With their debut EP, “The Explorer”, almost a year old, and their new single “What Did I Do” released just in September of this year, Almost Awake is working their way up the music scene.

I sat down with Vic, Addison, Grady, Gabe, and Tommy bright and early Saturday morning in the studio to talk new music, inspirations, and their show here at the Mesa Music Festival. The band talked about their humble beginnings meeting in a church worship group and finding bass player, Tommy, on Craigslist.

The band told us about their growth within just the past year, moving to a more mature sound than their EP and their latest tour down California, Nevada and Arizona. The band is pretty much on every social site, YouTube, Pandora, Spotify, and their newest single “What Did I Do” is now available on iTunes.
