I recently had the privilege of conducting an interview with Ronnie Bingaman, lead singer of Skyhawk Drive. Skyhawk Drive is an up and coming band from Greencastle, PA, and has released an EP, "Center Stage Shout Out" in 2009. Currently Skyhawk Drive is in the studio at Skies Fall, recording a new album! I'm super stoked for it! It was a great privilege to interview Ronnie, and make sure and check out The Extreme Tour site to see when Skyhawk Drive will visit your area! (I believe they're touring from the middle of June through mid-July on the Extreme Tour.) My questions are in black, and Skyhawk Drive's answers are in red. Enjoy!
Can you please tell us a bit about how Skyhawk Drive was formed and the story behind the band name?
Your first album, “Center Stage Shout Out” was released in 2009, and “Their Dance, Your Chance” became a hit in Japan, China and the Philippines. What was it like seeing your song doing so well in other countries?
“Finest Mistake” is an amazing song with a Pro-Life message. Can you explain what inspired you to write the song?
Currently you guys are at Skies Fall Studios recording your second album. What can we expect lyrically and musically from this record?
Of course, who can ask about recording at Skies Fall without asking what it’s like to work with Ben Kasica and Nick Radovanovic? =)
Who has influenced Skyhawk Drive the most as a band?
I’m sure some hilarious stuff happens while touring. Can you share with us one of those “moments”?
I bet touring can be hectic and stressful at times. How do you guys keep up your relationship with God while touring?
If you could tour anywhere in the world with any band, where and who would it be?
Could you please share with us the members of Skyhawk Drive’s favorite Scripture?
In what ways have you seen your music affect your fans?
Now, since Skyhawk Drive is from right here in Pennsylvania, I have to ask….Steelers or Eagles? =P
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to answer these questions. Would you like to share any closing thoughts?
