First of all, who are you?  

My name is John Fedowitz and I'm ceremony

What do you do?

I write love songs, I always will, I guess it's been that way for a while now. It's one way I show myself without talking to anyone

How did everything start?

I started with some bands growing up and then joined the band Skywave, I was the drummer and watching the song writing of my band mates influenced me to start writing songs of my own. We toured like crazy and it took a toll on all of us. 

We never really broke up, but Oliver moved up north and I started Ceremony with Paul. I wanted to keep going and I had a lot of songs in my head ready. So we start playing as a two piece with a drum computer.


Best of rocking out loud?

I love to feel the music. When it's turned up to the point where everything is equal. It's such a rush and inside I get so excited! And sometimes playing loud is chaos too, but that's how it goes. 

It's fucking great!! I never want to not play loud, Even recording, I always play my guitar the way I would on stage. That's the best of rocking out loud, being on stage.

Where do you live men? and how is it?

I live in Frederiksburg, Virginia, (USA) It's a small town, on about 24 thousand people. It's not a great place to play music unless you're a country or cover band. But I like it here.

It's quiet and I can walk my dog late at night and never see anyone. It's the city that always sleeps.

crazy place ever party? Best tour?

The best tours I ever had were in Europe! I think they just know how to treat an out of town guest. I can think of two nights on tour. Frankfurt Germany, after a night of drinking with my band mates walking back to the hostel, We can across a lado's club and stayed up till day light.

That was nice time. Second- I can remember that one. I know I was there...

Future? plans?

Future plans...? I think Ceremony is rock steady and it's going anywhere. But I'm going to start this new band. "Shotgun Postcards" will be a two piece. It's gonna  be awesome! We will start recording this summer and we hope to release something this year
