Moreland The Shooting

Interview with Daisy Bellis

The Power of Music to Bring Change

By Kaylee Rogers, Contributing Writer

Boston Rock Radio

 

What's in a name? Everything. It tells a story and in a moment lives change. Moreland The Shooting is bringing the pain to the heart and soul through their music.

Moreland the Shooting offers listeners an unapologetic perspective on life in Atlanta. With a melodic approach to progressive rock, their songs reveal a firsthand account of tragedy and crime all too familiar to those who have walked down the same roads.

 

BRR: What's in a name? Talk with us about the connection between the name of the band and the song's title​.

DB: When I moved to Atlanta, I witnessed a shooting on Moreland Ave which changed my perspective on everything. The song essentially tells the story of the band name. It's synonymous.

 

BRR: The song is a serious song about serious issues were are facing. Is there a broader message here outside of what is happening where you are in Atlanta?

DB: The message of the song is meant to inspire compassion for strangers. It's not so much about gun violence as it is how we respond to it. The song itself tells the story of a shooting that happened in Atlanta, but the fact is that it's happening everywhere and no one cares.

 

BRR: How can music change things?​

DB: Music makes people listen. It brings us together and inspires us to make a difference. It all depends on how the artist uses their power and what they do with their platform.

 

BRR: What is it you are wanting the band Moreland the Shooting to do?​

DB: Take over the world. We aim to strengthen the individual by addressing mental illness, abuse, and trauma. We will form a community connected through the human condition as a means to help them heal. Lastly, we will use our platform to create organizations and institutions for each subject that we address in our music.

 

BRR: The video seems to shed some insight on the songs message, can you talk about the video as well?

DB: “You don't have to know someone to care if they die.” What better way to show that than to construct memorials for victims we don’t know? We wanted to give back to the community in a way that was relevant to the cause. Each location we visited holds a significant place in my heart. My location in the video was the actual location of the shooting that inspired everything.

 

BRR: The video was meant to juxtapose the emptiness of death with the excitement of life.

DB: The most special shot in the video is at the end. A friend of ours had recently lost a loved one to gun violence and when they heard about the nature of our music video, she wanted us to capture the first time she visited the site of the shooting. What you see at the end is completely real and will probably be the most meaningful moment of my music career. Words cannot describe the gratitude I have for her allowing us to be a part of that.

 

BRR: What has been the reaction to the message locally?

DB: Mostly positive. People understand the importance of it, but it's so hard to keep their attention for very long these days, you always want more of a reaction than you get.

 

BRR: What direction will the bands coming music take fans? Where are you leading us? 

DB: We're leading a movement for mental health. We're going to lead you to a mirror and inspire you to reflect on everything you've been through. "If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change." Rest assured, it's always darkest before the dawn and the night is young.​
