On the road and celebrating their 1st headlining US tour, Ponytail is a band to see live if they come to your neck of the woods. They never disappoint and always delight their audience and are the best live act I’ve seen so far this year. I had the opportunity to meet with them before their Music Hall of Williamsburg show to learn about their musical whimsy.

Q.  Other than Music, where do you find inspiration to write music?

A.  The visual arts, in particular abstract art and conceptual photography. The methods of how music culture works in a cultural context, for instance the scene that evolves around a band. Fashion is also an inspiration, old 60’s and 70’s R&B and Punk aesthetics.
