Exclusive Interview With Indie-Rock Band, Horace Green

Horace Greene is an indie rock band from Wisconsin. The group is powered by childhood friends Anthony Oakley and Samuel Swetlik, with a vibrant cast of friends/musicians in rotation to bolster the lineup. The music of Horace Greene is mellow yet danceable, teasing elements of disco and psychedelia all while retaining its rock n roll spirit. At the heart of the sound, Oakley’s lyrics are soul-stirring and sincere, navigating themes of loneliness, love, and the human condition. Their latest release “The Diamond Engine,” is a full length album that showcases their colorful mix of influences and further pushes the boundaries of their 60’s-twinged style.

Music videos are hard. There is a lot of collaboration, moving parts, and help from our very talented friends (also a lot of duct tape).

What does it take to apply all your focus in making a project come to fruition? A lot of time, thought, and careful planning. You've got to choose the right people for the job.
