A few weeks ago, I interviewed a personal idol of mine. He’s the former lead singer/guitarist of the rock band, Oceansize — which broke up in 2010 — who has since released a solo record and started an experimental electronic group. Prior to Biffy Clyro’s live show in Phoenix, in which he plays supporting live guitar, I emailed him and got a response, agreeing to an interview.
This dude is Mike Vennart and, though I often try to avoid being overdramatic: his music renovated my life. Because Oceansize came to me during a dark time, and during that time, six years ago, their music helped me acknowledged perspectives that ultimately brought a sense contentedness.
