BOP and Tiger Beat hung out with Disney Radio’s Next Big Thing winners, Kicking Daisies. Did YOU know that singers have to warm up their voices before they perform? Band members, Caitlin and Carly Kalafus, Duran Visek, and Ben Spremulli showed us what they do to get their voices ready for a show. They also told us about what it was like to be a part of the competition, where they got their name, and where they get their inspirations from. Have you guys listened to their single “Keeping Secrets?”
Check out our video to see and take a look at our exclusive Q&A: Q: How was it competing in the Next Big Thing competition?
Duran: Awesome, first off.
Carly: All the other artists are so cool, they’re so talented and we just immediately clicked with them, became best friends, so if we could have it our way, we’d all win.
Duran: It was a lot of fun heading out to L.A. and just filming, very stress free.
Q: Did you guys think that you’d win?
Carly: I didn’t know because it really depended. Every artist had their own genre of music, so I wasn’t sure what the majority of the audience would like and I guess it was us so it was kinda really cool. Read the rest of this entry »
Just like you, we love to find out about the newest music first! So, when we heard the band Kicking Daisies on Radio Disney’s Next Big Thing, we knew it was something special. The four-member band — Caitlin, Carly, Ben and Duran — is from Milford, Connecticut.
Want to know something funny? Kicking Daisies almost didn’t happen! Carly, who is Caitlin’s sister, didn’t want to join the band at first. We’re so happy she did, because we love their music. Want to hear what all the fuss is about? Check out our video above!
Kicking Daisies will open for Allstar Weekend tomorrow night at the Radio Disney concert in Celebration, Florida. Tune into Radio Disney today at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET to hear more from the band!
