Top Ten With Thomas Fiss
I’m inspired by:
-Life. Relationships. Friends. That thing that guy said last night at the drive-through….
I realized I wanted to play music when:
-I felt more comfortable on stage then anywhere else…
Four songs you might find on my iPod:
-Kiss off, Violent Femmes. Love King, The Dream. All The Right Moves, One Republic. Hide The Key, The Cab. ….and anything from Tyrese.
One word I would use to describe myself:
-….mmm….I gotta use two words for this one. “That Guy”. Which actually makes sense for the answer.
The best part of being a musician is:
-Doing something I love…It’s an amazing feeling to wake up every day knowing that I’m in control of my life. Sometimes that can be a stressful thought, but I think that’s what I love about it….I work best under pressure.
Right now, I’m most excited about:
-A couple things….first off I’m stoked about my new self-titled EP being released! Whoop! Next, I’m just a happy guy…..life in general gets me excited. Its the simple things for sure.
Something most people don’t know about me is:
-I’m awful at remembering birthdays…..yikes. Reallyyyy bad at it actually.
One of my happiest moments was:
-Hearing myself on the radio for the first time….Kinda one of those “No way this is happening right now!” moments.
My music is:
-Pretty much the coolest thing since Otter-Pops. Don’t miss out….or else you’ll end up with the green one.
In ten years, I see myself:
-…….wherever the wind blows me…..but seriously….if it could take me to a tropical island for a stop on world tour, that’d be perfect.
