Q&A with Plus
Music selection is key to creating a great Cameo. We work to keep the Featured Music section updated with some of our favorite bands. We recently chatted with David Powell from Plus.
Los Angeles electro-rockers Plus are beyond just a synthpop band. But don’t get us wrong, if dancing is your thing, this is your band. In an increasingly automated genre, Plus demonstrates incredible musicianship. Formed in 2010, the band is David Powell (guitar/synths), Dave Farina (drums/synths), Cameron Gharaee (guitar/synths), and Paul Hiller (bass/synths). The talented multi-instrumentalists all rotate on keyboard and vocal duties, often playing two instruments at once. The resulting music is high-energy and powerful.
Plus band just dropped an awesome music video for their track “White to Gold”. Check it out here.
Synthesizers. Um… synthesizers. Uh, and oh yeah, did we mention synthesizers?! Other than that, the list probably reads like this, in order - donuts and/or bacon, collecting old sponges, clouds that look like body parts, disappointed children, smelling books, Spinal Tap trivia, the letter Q, poppin’ bottles and datin’ models.

Google aka God.
Best concert venue on earth?
It would either have to be Dave’s grandma’s living room or Madison Square Garden. It’s really close on this one.
If your house was burning down, what’s the one thing you would grab?
A fire extinguisher to put that shit out like a champ!!! If that doesn’t work, I would quickly create one turducken of musical significance - my hard drives and laptop stuffed into my backpack, then stuff that into my guitar case with my guitar, and then stuff that into my keyboard case with synths.
If you could watch anyone from history’s Cameo, who would it be?
The missing link! That dude must have been so lonely. He was different from everyone out there and if mankind went thru puberty, he was that stage. The story arc is built in and so ripe for the picking!
