How did you come to do what you do? 
2KX formed as a project band called Lisa LaRue Project 2K9 in 2009.  A core group of participants, and some new members, formed a permanent band in 2010 called “2KX.”  We still have special guests, but there is a core band.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?
We draw our inspiration from everything!  It can be a book, a movie, a dream, or a conversation.  Then we all build upon it with each members’ interpretation.

What message does the song on our Progstravaganza compilation carry?
Art, mystery, excitement.

Do you tend to follow any pre-defined patterns when composing a piece?
No, one of us will start a piece, and then we each add our own parts to that.

What is your method of songwriting?
Late at night :-)

How do you see your music evolving?
We are growing as an integral unit, not focusing so much on the special guests anymore, but becoming a stronger songwriting team.

What advice would you give to other musicians, trying to make inspired music and get it out in the world?
Don’t expect to make money, just do it because it is a gift given to you by the Universe, and share it with the world  Be passionate!!

What are you looking forward to?
Hearing what we are all writing and playing 10 years from now :-)
