-Interview- Digital Escort (7/21/23)

Digital Escort talks about their formation, current state of Industrial Rock and much more.


From: Illinois
Sounds like: Industrial Rock

1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name "Digital Escort" and is there any meaning behind it?

A couple of us had a few song ideas and posted a Craigslist ad and then we became a band. We were tired of going to the city for hookers, so we started looking online for escorts and hence Digital Escort.

2. What do you want people to take away from your music?

We just want people to have fun to our music and maybe make a baby.

3. How would you describe your sound to the average listener?

Naughty sexy Rock.

4. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

Nine Inch Nails, Puscifer, and Mindless Self Indulgence.

5. How has Covid affected what you do?

We took a break for two years and we should've been doing shows sooner and making new music.

6. What’s your take on the current state of Industrial Rock?

It's closed for business but we'd like to bring it back.

7. What's the current music scene like there in Illinois?

Any time Digital Escort is not making new music, we would say that it sucks.

8. What’s your take on the royalties that streaming services pay out to artists?

It doesn't matter to us. Bands don't make money from their music. You need to have awesome merchandise and do shows.

9. What's next for Digital Escort?

Real escorts.

10. Any shoutouts?

To sex workers and your mom.
