A peach is delicious. Cake is also delicious. Put them together, and you get a deliciously awesome band called Peachcake. I recently got to have a nice lil chat with 1/2 of Peachcake, Mr. Stefan Pruett, and ask him why Peaches and Cake go so well together. Check it outâ€¦
How would you describe your music to someone who
has never heard it?
Music for all creatures, from all walks of life, all of mankind, men, woman, child, animal, of any age, lifestyle, sexual-orientation, race, or gender. It’s posi-core. Electronica-Indie music for all of the universe to enjoy, if they so choose.
Your music contains a lot of politically charged lyrics, do you think it is important to have a message behind your music?
I think it’s important to use that power for the better, to better someone’s life, to put a smile on their face, or to give them some food for thought about issues/social concerns, or intrinsic experiences/life experiences that you’ve learned lessons from or that have affected you.
How did you first become interested in animal rights?
I’ve been protesting/speaking out on behalf of animals/sporting a vegetarian lifestyle and diet for about…6-7 years now.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to get involved with helping animals?
Read into the cause, both sides of it, for yourself. Look up the negative and positives of red meat, and the practices of steroid/hormone injections. Also, research the fast-food industry, you’ll find some very surprising facts and factors on why to stay away from that stuff as much as possible. On top of that, do your best to treat animals with the dignity and respect they deserve, and that you treat your friends and people around you with.
What was it like touring with Hellogoodbye (we love Forrest!)?
Forrest is a fantastic man who is a great friend of ours. In fact, his dedication to the vegan diet has been very inspirational to me, and has shown me that even when it gets difficult or you think it’s going to be impossible to do something, that you need to keep your spirits high, and put forth your beliefs and morale before what seems convenient.
