Cascade – Interview

UK rockers CASCADE continue their climb with the release of their brand new single, Angels Path – , out now via all platforms. With this in mind, we asked the emerging rock crew a few probing questions:


What is the full band line-up, who sings and who plays which instrument?

Sam Hallgalley – lead vocals/ guitar/ songwriter

Austen wicks – Guitar/ Backing vocals

Chris Chawner – Bass Guitar/ Backing vocals

Dan Jones – Drums


How and when did the band form?

Sam and Dan have been playing music for years being best mates for 16 years. After multiple changes, Austen and Chris joined the fold and that’s how we became the Cascade people know today.  We’re all based around Guildford and meet there regularly. It’s not much more interesting than your average hometown, but it does have a few hidden gems and some brilliant venues. Oh, and a castle!


When and how did the band really start gelling and solidifying?

After our first sell out hometown headline show. We all knew at that point, that we were onto something real.


Who are your musical influences?

Oasis, Foo fighters, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Arctic Monkeys, The Verve, Foals, Kasabian, Two door cinema club, Coldplay and many, many more.


Where did the name of the band come from?

Long story short, Sam was pretty heavily under the influence watching Dr. Who (As you do) and the word Cascade popped out to him in an episode, which sparked the fire.


How far back does your history with each other (the band members) extend? Are you friends from school or any family relations?

Dan and Sam have known each other since they were in school. Chris, Austen and Sam met at Uni so, technically 2 of the members are still strangers if you think about it.


In your opinion, how is your band different from all the other bands out there?

Honestly, we haven’t tried to re-invent the wheel here. British Rock is a sound that everyone knows and loves, we’re just giving it a second wind. We keep our songs catchy and fun because we believe that’s getting hard to come by nowadays in underground music.


If a deaf person were to ask you to describe the sound of your music, how would you describe it?

Big, anthemic, British stadium rock
