Killian Martin's portrait

Killian lent himself to the game of portraits, here are some answers to our questions ...

RdvROCK
Since when do you evolve in music?

Killian :
I started playing the guitar at the age of 10 when I entered high school, and the piano around 12-13. I have always been immersed in music since birth. My father used to make me listen to all his records and take me to concerts whenever he could, and I have many musicians in my family. But the big one was AC/DC at the Charles-Ehrmann Stadium in 2010. It was the event that confirmed that this was the life I dreamed of: music, the stage, rock n' roll. I started playing with David, who was in my class (and incidentally my neighbor), and years later, after several trainings, we formed the band Glamour at the Gate with him and Matthias. Soon after, Joan and Roman joined us and here we are!

RdvROCK
What are your musical influences?

Killian :
Mainly 90's rock with the Guns, RATM, the Red Hot and of course Nirvana. I have a great fascination for the grunge movement. In 2019, when I went to Seattle, the birthplace of this music, it was a kind of pilgrimage for me. But of course I also find inspiration in the legends of previous decades: The Beatles, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Johnny Cash, Prince and so on. I still have trouble with this question because I admire so many bands and artists!

RdvROCK
Have you already recorded an album or an EP?

Killian :
Yes, with Glamour at the Gate we released our first EP "Live Their Lives" in November 2019! Before that I had already recorded a few tracks here and there with some buddies but it was more for us, for fun.

RdvROCK
Which song fits you best?

Killian :
Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd, undoubtedly my favorite song. This song speaks to me, whether it's the lyrics, or even the music, which gathers everything I like in one song. There is also Paradise City by Guns N'Roses that I would place just behind, and finally almost the entire catalog of Rage Against the Machine. When I hear their music, my whole body is on fire, they really make me want to stand up, bang my fist and scream.

RdvROCK
Which artist would you like to share the stage with?

Killian :
Slash or John Frusciante, impossible to decide for me!

RdvROCK
What are your other passions or interests besides music?

Killian :
Apart from music, I have a Youtube channel (named Foxes Project) mainly focused on gaming, but it's mostly montages of funny moments when we're fooling around during games with my buddies. During the confinement, to stay in this idea, I started to stream on Twitch (nickname: Littledbz99). I try to be pretty active on that. Otherwise I like to cook. In fact, I like everything that requires a part of creation.

RdvROCK
If you could only keep 3 albums among all the ones you own, which ones would you keep?

Killian :
Appetite for Destruction - Guns N'Roses
Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers
MTV Unplugged in New York - Nirvana

This question is a torture! I'm sorry but I have to add a special mention for "Live At The Grand Olympic Auditorium" by Rage Against the Machine and "One More from the Road" by Lynyrd Skynyrd which fought in my heart to be on the podium ahah!

RdvROCK
What is the unmentionable song you sing in your shower?

Killian :
Honestly I don't have anything that I consider unmentionable but right now I would say Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver.

RdvROCK
Define, in 3 words, what music means to you

Killian :
Liberation, passion, emotions
