"Just because I like to howl at the moon doesn't mean I dont like to howl out some songs."
When did you first start playing music and what led you to begin a career path in the music industry?
I began playing music growing up with my family, we used to carve flutes out of bones from things we had just killed and eaten, it was a family bonding ritual and it is something I miss a lot. I knew I was going to go into the music scene very early in life. I couldn't really keep a constant school schedule due to the transformations which for some reason always fell on exam days - to this day I still think it's part of a conspiracy theory. Music was an escape for me, a way to forget the isolation and incredible pain that comes from a transformation I poured my pain and blood into my songs and found a way to deal with it all.
What’s the biggest misconception you’ve faced in the music scene based on your species?
We started off getting gigs in really sketchy places because people were too scared of me when we first started out. Everyone was afraid i'd turn and kill everybody at the show. But now my label has turned it into a commodity and we always get those people that want you to transform in front of them and its like they don't realize what they are asking of you, you know? You become this thing in a glass jar that people feel entitled to see and poke. Just because I am an entertainer doesn't mean I have to entertain you with my identity. You came to see us preform not to see a werewolf.
What’s the one thing you wish the general population knew about werewolves?
We only turn on a full moon and it is very painful please stop asking to see it.
Also claws are really annoying so if you can, bring me some extra guitar strings - thanks.
