Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi, I’m Dave Ottoson the singer of Stealing Eden,
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
That’s tough to pinpoint a specific style, I’d say I go for honesty, I always try to stay true to how certain music makes me feel, I let that guide me.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
We don’t actually have any shows lined up as of yet as we’ve been busy recording new Stealing Eden music and learning how to market and run a label. Max (guitars) and I do everything ourselves, we started Eternifi Entertainment so we could control our own future and not be at the behest of someone else.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
That’s also tough to pinpoint, I like the softer ballad styles songs and also the heavy ones. I’ll pick 2, “Seed” from our debut album ‘Truth In Tragedy’, it’s about the passing of my father. And the new track “Edge of The World”, it’s about realizing the need to become the change you want to see. Although I prefer to let people find their own meaning in our songs that’s what they mean to me.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
Our friends in Like a Storm are up there as a favourite. Although I don’t believe them to be actually Canadian (laughs) they lived here in Vancouver when I met them. The Veer Union & Imonolith are also kicking some serious ass right now.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
