There are lots of things we love about indie artists here on OurStage. Their ambition, will-power and outright determination to do whatever it takes to make it are some of the things we admire most. But, personally, I think their sheer creativity takes the cake. Independent artists are constantly one-upping each other and themselves when it comes to the ways they create and promote their music. And, millions of bands later, one of the trickiest yet most defining decisions an artist makes is their name.

Interveiw: The Graduate

EMBED THIS VIDEO

The Graduate was formed by friends Tim Moore, Corey Warning, Matt Kennedy, Max Sauer and Jared Wuestenberg in 2005.  Their memorable songs, electric live performances and approachable personalities quickly made them a favorite in the mid-west indie circuit.  Check out the interview as Corey chats it up with OurStage host Alyssa Jayne Hale before a sold out showcase at the Subterranean Rock Club in Chicago.  Hear what it was like performing on the Warped Tour, opening for Nine Inch Nails in Europe and how it felt to grace the cover of CMJ magazine before they’d even released their first album!
