Q&A with Tim Narducci of The Watchers

MIR: Thank you for taking the time to do this. Please introduce yourself to the readers.

Tim: Hello I’m Tim Narducci vocalist/sometimes guitars/songwriter for The Watchers

Q: How did you get started on this adventure?

A: Back in 1975 I began with drums then graduated to guitar.. I was 9 years old at that point. Started playing in bands at 11 with my Fathers cover band….gradually moved to originals at 15. First band, Tyrranicide , then Systematic, Spiralarms, White Witch Canyon, and now The Watchers.

Q: If you could go back to the day you started and give yourself one piece of advice, what would that be?

A: Never take your self too seriously, but always work towards your goals. Music is a roller coaster ride an equal amount of highs and lows. Cherish your successes and learn from your mistakes.

Q: What is something that you have adopted that brings value to your process?

A: Life experiences. Applying your journey in life always makes songs connect more naturally. Familiarity is important too.

Q: Please highlight some of the things you enjoy most about what you do.

A: Writing songs, creating something you pull from the Universe. It’s very magical. The live experience is spiritual as well, the hum of the amps, electric vibrations of the soul. Connecting with people through music is amazing, how a song you wrote or piece of art makes people feel, touching people going through tough times air amazing times that that particular piece of music creates a memory or time stamp in someone’s life.

Q: What are some of your current goals? Things you may hope to achieve in the next 12-24 months or further.

A: Keep creating and playing live. Making new connections, striving to make the band reach more people every single day.

Q: What is an unpopular opinion that you subscribe to or a popular opinion that you disagree with?

A: I’m a bit opposed to technology in music. Be it recording or marketing your music. The Mystic has been lost…and lot of soul in the musician is gone too. The internet and protools… a necessary evil.

Q: Is there anything you want to mention as we close?

A: Thanks for the interview and taking interest in The Watchers! Be sure to check out our newest release “Nyctophillia”, along with our back catalog, “Black Abyss”, Sabbath Highway”, and “High and Alive”. All on Ripple Music. Come see us live if you get a chance….and be kind to one another.

Thank you for your time and I appreciate what you are doing.
