I interviewed Chad Gerber, solo artist and frontman for Suicide Denial, back in September 2011 and I had chance to catch up with him just before New Year’s Day 2013. He’s currenly working on WoodrowGerber – an alternative, electronica, hip hop, dub, influenced record, a new classic rock oriented album with Suicide Denial, and an ambitious one of a kind live show project.
Chad was gracious enough to share his experience and thoughts on a number of topics ranging from advice for beginners to art appreciation.
Interview with Chad Gerber
With Lights in the Sky and the songs from the forthcoming alum, they are more inclusive of the pop genre, what drove you to put together this kind of album?
CG: With this album, I wanted to speak a simpler language through music. With Suicide Denial … it’s rock n’ roll, and people get it. With this I was trying to make the guitar the icing on the cake so to speak and not the main attraction. Music that you can relax and groove to, that’s not lyrically heavy.
From the forthcoming WoodGerber Album “Lights in the Sky”
It’s something I’ve wanted to do for 10 years now but it was never the right time. With this album I wanted the songs to be easily digestible to anyone but at the same time include a lot of layering and really have the guitar standout instead of being just background music.
How did you get your tone?
CG: I started using a Rock Crusher from Rivera Amps. I’ve always struggled with getting the sound out my guitar that I wanted because cranking my amp all the way up wasn’t very practical. The Rock Crusher is a power attenuator that juices my amp. I mic it with 57′s then dial it in until I get the tone I want. I’ve yet to capture that sound on a record because by the time it get recorded and produced it’s gone through so many processes, it loses a little something although it sounds pretty cool overall.
On the NAMM show:
CG: It’s absolutely overwhelming how massive the show is. It’s like an indoor guitarist Disneyland. It’s a totally freak show but it’s a ton of fun.
Where did the name WoodrowGerber come from?
CG: I got a gig when I was 20 playing guitar for this hip-hop group in Dallas. They were actually a pretty funny group of guys and they said that my teeth were so straight they looked wooden. Then they started asking who was the president with wooden teeth? … they came up with Woodrow Wilson. They basically threw Woodrow in front of my name and that’s where it came from.
