Laura:
Why call the band and comic book, “September Mourning?”

September:
The name September Mourning is the name of the main character in the comic books. When I was faced with the task of naming her I tried to think of something that would be memorable, especially for me. I lost my best friend the year before I started coming up with the concept of the books and the band. I lost him in September. The name of September Mourning was a homage to him. Every time I see it on a shirt or the books, I smile because I loved him so much.

Laura:
What genre of music do you consider September Mourning to be?

September:
Hard rock and a bit of melodic alternative metal.

Laura:
How did you come up with the concept of the comic book of September Mourning?

September:
I have always been obsessed with death and what happens after you die. This story was my way of creating my version of what that was. A world I could exist in onstage and bring to life for others to enjoy.

Laura:
What’s the ultimate direction for your band?

September:
Just to keep growing. We want to share more of the ongoing story with as many as we can. We also want to continue to tour as much as we can once it’s safe to do so again. Ultimately we want to bring strength and inspiration to others.

Laura:
How would you describe your music making process?

September:
Sometimes it starts with a guitar riff and other times it’s a lyric or a melody. Riven and myself are the primary songwriters and we work well off of each other. The story provides endless inspiration lyrically as well. It’s a fun process!

Laura:
What should fans expect to experience at a show?

September:
We bring them into our world of reapers, soul swapping and supernatural elements, all set to hard rock music. We take them on a journey. It’s not just a show, it’s a more immersive experience.

Laura:
Typical question here. Who has influenced you the most via music?

September:
We draw influences from all different types of music – variations of pop, if you will. I feel you can hear that in the songs we create. Of course it’s all run through the hard rock filter but there’s a lot of influence from other genres in there.

Laura:
How can fans and future fans locate, listen to and buy your music?
