We were lucky enough to not only win the Best Rock Band at the 2012 Carolina Music Awards, but also to be interviewed by our good friend Tomris for Carolina Style Magazine. In the interview we not only talk about winning the award, but the story behind some of our songs, and more!
“Winners of “Best Rock Band” at this year’s Carolina Music Awards, Young Cardinals, were one of two bands that opened for Nick and the Babes, and the Jason Adamo Band at the Lincoln Theater on Friday August 24th. Their rock-heavy sounds have made quite the mark on the Raleigh music scene in just a few short years. Following the untimely passing of original drummer David Marzetti in October 2010, frontman James Forgey regrouped with Idaho natives, Sam Branstetter (bass), and Marcus Matile (drums) to form Young Cardinals.
We sat down with the trio to dig deeper into their music, influences, and what makes them a band to keep watching.”
