In this episode, I speak to Alexis Marshall, vocalist of the band, Daughters.
In November 2018, Daughters released their first LP in almost 6 years. It was followed by 15 months of grueling and unrelenting touring that just wrapped this past December.
Their critically acclaimed record, ”You Can’t Get What You Want“ has sold over 40,000 copies and has since amassed a devout and loyal following.
The band went from playing DIY punk shows in their hometown, Providence, Rhode Island, to playing festivals and shows to thousands of people all over the world.
It’s incredible to see a band from the underground rise to this level while maintaining full integrity and creative clarity of their work.
My band toured with Daughters this past fall, and it completely changed our perspective on the meaning of catharsis. Seeing them live gave me such a deeper understanding of the band’s artistry, talent, and focus. It was truly inspiring.
Alexis and I discuss life after tour and the challenge it brings, his relationship with music and performing, the importance of ambiguity in his lyrics, the struggles of his earlier years, and so much more.
So without further ado, is my conversation with Alexis Marshall of Daughters.
