Ian Suter on dreaming big with a guitar strapped across the shoulder
Ian Suter is a rocker from Argentina with big ambitions, goals, and dreams – just the kind of musician we’d go out of our way to feature on Drooble. When he isn’t busy answering interview questions, he can be found rocking with his band, 710, recording, and practicing to, hopefully, take over the world – musically, at least! Read on and enjoy what this fascinating persona has to say! We are sure many of you guitar players will be able to relate to Ian closely.
How did growing up in Argentina influence you as an artist?
Well, first of all, I am a growing artist. I do not agree that only English rock is the best – I think many Argentine artists are great. I hope to become one of those.
You like to say music means freedom to you. What is freedom?
Yes, of course music is freedom. Every time I get inspiration, a letter or a melody, I feel that what I could not explain with words I end up transmitting through my music.
You are of the opinion that politics and religion are unnecessary. Please elaborate!
Yeah, right! They are useless, they only divide people and force them to think one way. You have to be free to think what you want or believe, but ultimately, we are all brothers – not enemies.
If you could meet Dave Grohl in person, what would you say to him?
I would tell him that I love him, hahaha!That I admire him deeply. That he understood everything about music as well as life. I would love to meet him and play together on stage!
How does it feel to be right where you belong when you are performing on stage?
It always feels special. I keep on believing in my songs and always giving it all on the stage. You feel happiness, you are invincible, free – many sensations at the same time!
Introduce your current musical projects and tell us what makes each one special for you!
Well, we recently uploaded 4 thematic videos on YouTube with my band “710”. We also made an official video. This year we will record the second part with 4 more songs and some more video, surely!
What are your favorite software and hardware tools for music production?
Well, I work a lot with Cubase for the recording and editing of our songs. I have a few amplifiers in my home studio and with that I manage to record.
Out of all the live shows you played, which one was the most memorable, and why?
Once we played in Adrogue with the band “Superuva” At that time we were “Super Inflation” and playing with them made for an amazing opening, because we had the opportunity to hear another audience and the response was great!
What is your biggest musical goal?
I would like “710” to reach the top of everything, to be a band that breaks everything known so far, and I think we have that. I would like our songs to go down in history and serve many, to have them falling, getting up, crying, and laughing.
How has being on Drooble helped you as a musician?
Drooble seems great to me. As soon as I found out that it exists, I did not hesitate to register. Hopefully it will grow much more!
