Metal Anarchy’s Music In The Age Of COVID-19 Series: Interview With Karly Jewell

Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “Music In The Age Of COVID-19” series, the feature where I discuss the ongoing pandemic with various musicians. This time I have an interview with Karly Jewell.

METAL ANARCHY: How have you been holding up during the coronavirus pandemic?

KARLY JEWELL: For myself as an artist it gave me time to write and work on my sound and time to be ready for when things opened up.

METAL ANARCHY: Have you been using your downtime to work on new music?

KARLY JEWELL: All the time, every chance I get I use for music.

METAL ANARCHY: What was the last show you played or attended before the shutdown?

KARLY JEWELL: I think the last time we played before the lock down was a Melbourne show at The Workers Club and I was very lucky to see Reckless Love while they were on tour just before everything closed, so happy to get one big one in before it all stopped.

METAL ANARCHY: Are you planning to play any livestream concerts during this time?

KARLY JEWELL: Things are open again for us [in Melbourne] but with capacity measures to follow for events. So far it’s been great with every show I’ve seen being sold out. I think we have a new appreciation for the live scene after it was taken away from us. I feel it’s brining our music community together in a much stronger way then I’ve seen before.

METAL ANARCHY: Do you think the live entertainment industry will ever recover?

KARLY JEWELL: I think it will, but it will evolve into something new. It’s going to take time to get back to a normal of what we once knew.

METAL ANARCHY: Lastly, is there anything fans can do to help your band or others that may be struggling during this time?

KARLY JEWELL: Share and keep sharing our social pages, our video content all these things can help leave reviews purchase the album just keep sharing our music across the globe.
