Hardcore punk music in general is cathartic for me. I eat it and breathe it daily. All of the bands I’ve played in have been fast hardcore punk bands, it’s really a style that identifies with me. With my photography, I’m all about capturing the raw emotion. Especially with Artists that move around and come off more intense, abrasive, or scary. It feels like a chain reaction with the audience. The whole room is engaged. That’s my favorite. I love being in the front and actually being a part of the show.

Bumsy and the Moochers is Ska/Punk sextet based in the Chicago suburbs. The band has quickly become a staple in the Midwestern ska/punk scene since putting out their first full-length, “Bored Up” in 2015. Since then they have been independently released another EP “Easily Distracted”, a second full-length, “Spaced Out” in 2018 and a live album. The group is currently promoting their latest single, “Youth”, which is featured on our February 2021 Ska/Punk Volume 1 playlist. We did a brief Q & A with Cait Edwards, the lead vocalist and guitarist to talk through the band’s history, how they’ve been holding up during the pandemic and what’s in store for Bumsy & The Moochers in 2021.
