Get to Know Radio Disney’s NBT Season 3 Winner Kicking Daisies!

CelebSecrets4U got to talk with Caitlin, Carly, Duran, and Ben from Radio Disney’s NBT: Next Big Thing winner, Kicking Daisies. Read below to see what the interview was like:

CelebSecrets4U: When was the first indication that you had a passion for music?

Caitlin:When I was confined in a dark space… aka I wasn’t evenborn yet. My parents used to put headphones on my mom’s stomach and I used to listen to Led Zeppelin, Pat Matheny, The Rolling Stones, BB King, ect.”

Carly: “I was actually asked to join the band without even playing bass before, and at first I didn’t want to do it, but once I tried it I realized that this was what I wanted to. So I guess Cait, Ben, and Duran kind of inspired me to be apart of it.”

Duran: “I remember asking my dad for a drum set and when I came home from school one day there was an old black tama drum set on the porch since then I picked up 5 – 6 instruments. I pretty much do nothing but music. It’s awesome.”

CelebSecrets4U: What made you come up with the name “Kicking Daisies?”

Duran: “We wanted something that would represent two girls and two guys being in the band the heavy the light. It was very cool and catchy so we stuck with it!”

CelebSecrets4U: What was it like being a part of Radio Disney’s NBT competition?

Carly: “The whole competition was just an all around great experience. The other artists were so awesome and we really had one of the best weeks ever filming for it. It was so much fun.”

CelebSecrets4U: What was running through your mind when you got the news about winning the competition?

Caitlin: “We were in the middle of sound check for our sold out show when we got the news about winning NBT. We got super nervous and were shaking as we walked to the phone to hear whether or not we had won. When we heard Ernie D’s voice we got excited… he kept us on the edge of our seats (except we were standing) and when he told us we had won, we flipped out and jumped up and down, hugged and just couldn’t believe it. It was the best feeling in the world.”

CelebSecrets4U: You recently had a performance in Orlando, FL with previous NBT contestants, Allstar Weekend. How did that go?

Caitlin: “The show in Orlando, FL with All Star Weekend was amazing! First off… it was so much fun to get to fly down to Florida and play a show down there. It was incredible on stage, to look out and see people as far as you can see and beyond. There was a sea of screaming fans and it made us so excited and energetic that when we finally got on stage it was just pure passion and fun. I wish we could go back and relive it!”

CelebSecrets4U: What can we expect from the band in 2011?

Carly: “Our album will be coming out in the spring, and hopefully we’ll be on a tour for spring/summer!”

CelebSecrets4U: Since our website is all about secrets, can you each share a secret about yourself?

Caitlin: “I am a black belt in Karate.”

Carly: “My hair actually isn’t naturally red. It’s brown like Caitlin’s.”

Duran: “I’ve been skateboarding for 5 (going on 6) years.”
