James: Why did you start creating music?

James: Where did you guys meet?
Black Match: We met when we were in middle school and have grown up together.
James: What music do you like listening to?
Black Match: We love to listen to a lot of different types of music. Some bands we are enjoying right now are Oh Wonder, Caamp, and Black Pumas. There is so much good music out there and we love to discover new artists that inspire us.

James: What’s your go-to meal before a show? What’s the pre-gig routine?
Black Match: We don’t have a go-to meal before a show, but we usually try not to eat anything too heavy before a show. We also don’t have a pre-gig routine, but we usually try to go over a few harmonies before the show.
James: What would you do if you weren’t in the band?
Black Match: If we weren’t in a band then we might be working in the nonprofit world or medical field.
James: Where do you see your band in 10 years?
