Question The Answers

Question The Answers Podcast: Episode #41 – Kevin Sur

Kevin Sur knows that you don't know hard times until you know the road, and that is how the story goes.

I am thrilled to have my long time friend Kevin Sur as the featured guest this week. Kevin and I go back well over 20 years as friends, and he has always been someone that I could count on to give me sound advice about the music business, and guidance about what to do with the bands I was in.

Kevin Sur, affectionately known for many years among his musical peers as “Bubba,” was a member of the beloved Sacramento Punk outfit Luckie Strike. He cut his teeth in that band over the course of seven years, where they were true road dogs, touring constantly, and doing everything they could in a pre-internet world to stay in constant contact with their fans.

After Luckie Strike called it a day, Kevin ventured to Seattle to focus on school, but eventually found his way back to his hometown in the Bay Area, and started a new project called Indian Valley Line with two longtime friends. A far cry from the Pop-Punk of his former band, Indian Valley Line blended roots-Americana, Indie-Folk which paired well with Kevin’s newly found skills as a composer.

Heading back to Seattle, Kevin turned his sights to music promotion, starting Artist Home. Artist Home focuses mostly on their annual music festivals these days, but they also serve as a professional consultancy for artists that are trying to grow their careers. Kevin is definitely the right kind of person you’d want on your team for this, I know from experience.
