We had the good fortune of connecting with Kellen Moore and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kellen, other than deciding to work for yourself, what else do you think played a pivotal role in your story?
For us, it was the decision on how we were going to carry ourselves as musicians. Being what most would consider extremely young in the local scene, we were often faced with challenges and criticism due to what some would call a “lack of experience”. We had to sit down and decide as a band that if we wanted to show people we were the real deal, we had to prove it. More action, better performances, and over all, better music.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Professionalism is something that has always been important to the image of 307. The day we sat down and decided we would no longer be the “kids in the band”, and that we were going to do this for real, we knew we had to step up our game. We take a lot of pride in the work we do, and we are always aiming to reflect that.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Well, being musicians, we love to show off all of the amazing performance venues Houston has to offer! One that sticks out for sure is the House of Blues Foundation Room. With such an interesting setup, you’d be lying if you said you didn’t have fun when visiting this venue. Warehouse Live is another amazing place to take someone if they want the up close experience in the studio room, or the festival style ballroom stage. There is almost too many to list!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
307 has had the pleasure of working with many amazing people over our career as a band, but two stick out as true pillars in the history of 307. First of course is the parents of all the members, for we would not even be having this interview if it weren’t for them. They keep the wheels spinning on this giant machine, and we are forever grateful for the work and dedication of the families.
Our second mention definitely goes out to Danny Saber, legendary mixer and producer out of LA. In our developmental stages, 307 struggled a lot with figuring out what exactly the music scene was looking for, and where we would fit in. Danny stepped in to help us find our legs, and with Saber in tow, 307 would go on to produce our current E.P “KnowWhereLand”. Danny would help us truly understand how important composition and production really is when making music, and without his amazing feedback and support, I believe 307 would look a lot different.
