18 Jul

Empire State Express Live at Double Door Tonight

8 Jul


Fresh from the studio, Chicagoans Empire State Express are spending some time in Chicago’s venues before dropping their newest single, “Revolving Doors”.
Forming in 2009, Mat Koehler, Jesse Woelfel and Mike Bruder headed the band’s initial line-up along with Chris Steele, back when their sound was more focused around old school rock n’ roll and rockabilly. A few years later the band still holds onto that sound somewhat, though the line-up has changed to feature Tim O’Donnell on the bass, Derrick Martens on drums, while Chris continues to do his thing with the microphone and guitar.
Since the band is playing Double Door later tonight, we thought we’d share an interview the three did with us this past week. Keep reading to learn more about the music Empire State Express makes, the things that influence them and what they’re plans are for the coming year.
