Who’s Fablecar? How you guys all met and started this band? Fablecar is: Mitch Elliott (vocals, guitar), Kyle G. Warr (lead guitar), Forrest Jenkins (bass guitar), Trace Gross (drums).

In late 2009, Kyle G. Warr contacted Mitch Elliott with the idea of writing some songs together. The pair had been involved in several earlier projects in various roles but had never really written together.

In early 2010, they began writing songs, and a distinct style began to emerge. As the duo continued to write, a cohesive collection of material began to form and the decision was made to make a record. Fablecar was born.

The record took about 6 months to finish, and once completed, they set about assembling the band. Long time musical collaborator Forrest Jenkins was asked to fill the bass position, and drummer Trace Gross rounded out the lineup.





What’s the meaning behind the band’s name? It means whatever the listener wants it to mean.



What’s the method at the time of writing a song? The only hard, fast rule we have for songwriting is that the songs be allowed to develop organically. We think songs have a natural way they want to be rendered and we strive to let a song be what it wants to be so to speak. Sometimes it starts with a guitar line or a bass line. Sometimes it’s a chord progression. As the band plays around with these parts, we see if a song develops and if it’s worth fleshing it out.



What’s the band’s music influences? We listen to a wide array of musical styles. We have been influenced by: The Cure, Interpol, Led Zeppelin, The Cars, Anberlin, The Rolling Stones, and Ian Thornley/Big Wreck, etc.



Your self-titled album. How was the recording and writing process? For the Fablecar record, Mitch and Kyle co-wrote the entire record and played all the instruments except for drums and a few keyboard parts. Every step of the recording process was guided by a simple principle: if this part or sound, or effect doesn’t make the song better, or help it in some way then it was discarded. Co-producer Kevin Lively was instrumental in translating the sound in our heads to reality.



So what has been the funniest moment you guys have been or took part while touring or playing a show? For me, it’s a tie between a fog machine malfunction which blanketed the stage so much that we couldn’t see each other at all, and a show at a historic old theater that is supposedly haunted….things fell from the cealing. Power went off randomly. Strings broke. Cables failed…..guess the ghost wasn’t into Fablecar:)



Are there any plans for the future we should be aware of? We’ve been writing material for the next record and have been trying a lot of this new material out at the live shows with great response. Touring, touring, and more touring.

Do you feel you are moving on the right direction? Definitely. We have never tried to be the next big thing, or to mold our style to fit the trend of the week. At the end of the day, you have to make music that pleases YOU, and hopefully it’ll bring joy and entertainment to others as well. We simply write music that we love, and we want to share this with the world.
