The Stranded Local Q&A: Media Made

We welcome our newest blogger, Laura G, to the SIS fold this week. Her first report finds her hanging out with the latest band caught in Boston's spotlight, Media Made.

Media Made began as a solo project for Christian Medice’s (guitar, vocals) pop/rock introspect but in early 2008, it evolved into a full-fledged quartet. Medice’s former band mate, Jared Kaner (bass), was first to jump on board with Media Made. Shortly after, Medice’s college buddies Dennis Dohert (guitar), who has a solid rock ‘n roll background, and Jeff Villanueva (drums), with a jazz background, were added. The four members of Media Made each bring a fresh outlook to the band, producing a very hip and bold sound. With dozens of enlightened pop songs ready to share with Boston and the rest of the world, Media Made is set to tour in the fall.

Christian Medice, guitarist and vocalist of Media Made, took a few minutes to answer the same five questions Stranded In Stereo always asks:

Hailing from Boston makes us better than all those non-Boston bands because:
We can make your booty shake real good… that’s gotta count for something.

Name at least three bands that are still around and touring that you’d love to be on a bill with, and think it fits well:
The Honorary Title (great songs), Boys Like Girls (great dudes), Butch Walker (my man crush).

Your favorite Boston venue to perform in is:
The Paradise and Middle East… both good clubs.

Are there any genres that influence your music conceptually, rather than sonically? (In that you can’t hear from simply listening to the music, but from getting into the structure or mathematics of the song-writing, etc.)
We conceptualize 4 on the floor starting off every song.

Your favorite local bar to hit up when not doing the whole band deal is:
Daisy Buchanan’s. Isn’t that everyone’s favorite bar?

Catch them live: July 29th @ Johnny D’s for a benefit to raise funds for non-profits Veterans for Peach and Iraq Veterans Against War
