With Indie Psych Pop sounds, Roots of Thought answers ten questions in this Norman Music Festival performer question and answer session to get to know them before the festival. Roots of Thought will perform at Brewhouse on Saturday, April 27, 2019, at 7:00 pm.

1. To get people to know you, how would you describe yourself and your music?

Imagine Arctic Monkeys, Glass Animals, and a Tame Impala all at the same petting zoo.

2. What song would you like a person who hasn’t heard your music listen to first?

“Otherside” – Roots of Thought

3. What’s your song writing process?

“Every song is different. Lately we’ve been starting with a simple idea and using that as a focal point, really feeling and listening to the emotions that arise, and then just running with it.” – Logan M.

4. What are your thoughts on the Norman Music Festival?

“We think it’s a wonderful way to connect artists to the community as potential fans and friends, as well as to meet and be inspired by other artists.” – Roots of Thought

5. In general, what inspires you?

“Well, aside from other artists as mentioned above, humanity and nature and the way it all connects inspires me. I love the way that I can feel something, lonely for instance, and then go out and meet someone else who is also feeling a bit lonely, then now all of a sudden we’re not alone anymore, because we’re together in it. The same goes for the band and the fans. One can’t exist without the other. It’s pretty cool.” – Logan M.

“I find inspiration in fleeting moments, in a film, in a song, in a cup of coffee, at the tip of a pen a few lines into a new idea, in our community via other artists and musicians, poetry, philosophy, through late night conversations, and eye contact that exceeds a “normal” duration of time.” – Tazmen W.

6. You’ve just been offered an all expenses paid trip. Where would you go?

“All expenses paid? How about a trip around the world? Haha, seriously though, that’s a tough one. I’ve always wanted to go to Japan during the season when all the cherry blossoms are blooming. I bet it’s gorgeous.” – Logan M.

“I’d love to travel through Europe, pack a bag, wonder through the history of each country, and find myself in strange places, meeting new people far away from home.” – Tazmen W. 

7. Any plans while you’re in the Norman area?

“Meet up with some friends, watch our buddies perform, and see/meet some new bands/people. Cavern Company, Twiggs, and Special Thumbs are just a few of our Oklahomie bands. Other than that, just eat some good vegan food and take in the festival vibes.” – Roots of Thought/Logan M.

8. What else you want the public to know about you?

We’re currently looking for a producer and recording engineer to get some fresh tunes recorded. In the meantime, the next three of our shows will feature all of our new material, come out, have a listen, and let us know what you all think! If you want to find us go to and choose which platform best suits your needs.

9. What do you think should be the Twelfth Wonder of the World?

Logan’s mustache.

10. What was the most extreme adventure you’ve had?

“Honestly as a band it was either our tour through the Midwest or just last month at SXSW. Austin really knows how to melt your face.” – Logan Meldrum

We hope you like our answers as much as we enjoyed answering them, thank you again for the opportunity!
