"5 Minutes" Review

This 5-minute piece features bass player Mark McKnight, who shares his experiences with attempting to start a band, eventually joining the band Atreyu, and touring the world. The piece is solidly produced. Starting off the piece, there’s a good use of an audio clip, which shows listeners the type of music that Atreyu if known for. With a whole piece focused on a band, however, I feel like audio could have been incorporated more. I would’ve also liked to see more of Tiana in the introduction. Sharing a little background info about her connection to the band (does she listen to them?) would connect her more to the piece. She did a good job transitioning between the many topics that Mark covers, which enables listeners to sit back and enjoy the story. The piece is interesting, and for those listeners who are pursuing a music career, Mark leaves them with advice on how to succeed.
