Quick 5 with Brooklyn’s own Sean McVerry

Posted on: Friday, February 5, 2016

music, brooklyn, recording artist, quick 5, sean mcverry

Indie pop recording artist Sean McVerry is a recording artist out of Brooklyn, New York. He creates well thought music with a mixture of folk and electronica. His sound is truly unique. When we first heard his music through our office speakers, we immediately started talks to feature him on HerCastleGirls.com. Our favorite track right now is Kerosene. We HIGHLY suggest you add him to your playlist.  Sean is currently on tour, but he made time for us and our random questions.

If there is any place in the world that you could go, where would it be and why?

Ireland. I haven’t been yet, and I supposedly have a bunch of family over there. I’ve always had this very romantic vision of this “homecoming” scenario where as soon as I step off the plane (or boat?, usually have a boat in my head for some reason) I’ll be greeted by like, one hundred and fifty McVerrys waiting for me with Sheep dogs and barrels of whiskey. On top of that, I’m inspired a lot by architecture and have always wanted to visit the trinity college library (google search that right now). 

When it comes to Netflix, What have you been binging on recently?

Like the rest of the free world, Making a Murderer. I’m putting Dean Strang on the guest list when we hit Madison, Wisconsin on this tour. 

Superman or Batman? and Why?

Never was a big DC comic guy tbh. I’m going to go with Batman, although in reality he’s just a rich dude with a lot of expensive toys. Same could be said of Iron Man I guess though? I like Iron Man. I’m not sure, I’m conflicted on this. Batman though, Batman for sure. Better villains in Batman.

​​Would you prefer to be smart or happy, and why?
 
DEEP. That is a very good question. I’m inclined to say smart? I feel like If I was just happy I wouldn’t be able to write any music with emotional depth. Then I suppose I would never feel satisfied with what I was creating since satisfaction is a branch of happiness? This is another Batman v Superman question. It’s kind of like an Of Mice and Men situation. I could be George and see the truth in the world and carry that weight with me, or I could be Lennie and be just a big affable idiot. Lennie ends up in a ditch, so let’s go with George and smarts.
  
​​In regards to your latest release, which track or tracks should we have on repeat right now?
 
I mean, the whole thing is only clocking in around eleven minutes in length so I’m going to say rock the whole EP, live a little!

He travels all over, but pop/rock recording singer and songwriter Zameer calls Toronto home. He’s on the road now, but he took the time to answer our Quick 5 questions and talk about his addictive single, Take. Seriously, it’s addictive. We’ve had Take playing on repeat for days now.

 If there is any place in the world that you could go, where would it be and why?

Giza, Egypt. King Tut was so dope. How many kings do you know are crowned at 14, die at 18, and are still touring the world in 2016? King Tut does. His real sarcophagus tours museums worldwide.

When it comes to Netflix, What have you been binging on?

Madame Secretary, Air Disasters, Lost, Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, and Scandal

Batman. I prefer heroes who bend the rules to get what they want.

Posted on: Friday, January 8, 2016

jill hennessy, i do, singer and actress, music, canadian music, canadian actress

Many of us know Jill Hennessy for her roles in television hit series Law & Order and films such as RoboCop 3. Along with her role on the new show Madam Secretary, Jill has been busy promoting her album release, I Do. Thankfully, Jill took some time out for us to answer our questions below.

If there is any place in the world that you could go, where would it be and why? 

I have always wanted to tour the haunted castles of Scotland and Ireland.  I would love to bring my guitar and play sessions with everyone

When it comes to Netflix, What have you been binging on?

I am Never able to binge watch anything.  I have loved the episodes I’ve seen of “Bloodlines” and need to see more “Orange is the new Black” and “Peeky Blinders”.

Superman or Batman? and Why?

Superman all the way!!  C’mon, we’re talking real alien super-powers vs. money & gadgets. No contest.

Would you prefer to be smart or happy, and why?

Happiness is everything.  What’s the point of being smart but crushingly depressed?

As far as your latest release, which track of yours should we have on repeat right now?
One of my favorite tracks is a song I wrote about my grandmother, Ann, who was a Ukrainian immigrant to Canada.  It’s called “Edmonton” and is essentially an homage to the courage of all immigrants who seek a better life for themselves and their families.  Also, I wrote the melody line of the chorus to be reminiscent of a pub song.
