Adam Rupp and Rob Lundquist from the a cappella vocal group Home Free spoke with Digital Journal about their new album "Timeless." They also talked about the impact of technology in the contemporary music scene.
On the song selection process for Timeless, Rob said, "We took some tunes that we loved growing up. We also took some tunes that we loved that are currently on the radio. Also, we wrote some tunes for the album as well."
Tomorrow, they will be performing on Fox & Friends. "Yeah, that's exciting," they concurred. They revealed that they will be performing some of their new songs from the album, including "Hillbilly Bone."
Each day, Home Free is motivated by their listening audience, and watching their reaction and seeing their energy at shows. "Affecting people's lives in a positive way keeps us motivated to keep doing shows and to keep producing music for people," they said.
On their future plans, they said, "Things are getting really busy for us right now. We will be doing the Timeless world tour for a while, and then we will be doing a Christmas tour, and hopefully, we will be releasing another Christmas album next year. Just touring as much as we can, and seeing our fans all over the country and even abroad."
Digital transformation of the music scene
"Technology has changed the music industry dramatically over the last 10 to 20 years," Adam said. "Social media is now the major platform in which artists are able to reach their audiences, where it used to be all about recorded music and the radio before. It's incredible, and it's great for the artists since now they have a more direct connection to their audiences, and their fans can support them more directly, which is really great. For us, especially on Facebook and YouTube, it has been a great medium to get our music and our videos out there."
When asked how they use technology in their music, they said, "We have a great sound system, and a great sound-man, and we have great equipment. We don't use a lot of technology, but this year, we are having a loop station on one of our songs when we perform."
They recorded their version of Little Texas' "God Blessed Texas (A Song for Hurricane Relief)," for the victims of the hurricanes, where all of the proceeds from the sales and streams of the tune go towards the disaster relief fund.
