Dreams of reaching rock-stardom are ever closer for Rosehill College students, Cobber Traiyawong, Nick Raven and Max White, whose band Razor Fox has just recorded and released its first music video, as the winner of the Schick Style Award at the 2010 Smokefreerockquest.
The teenage band members entered the Schick Style Award in the hopes of winning a $10,000 professionally produced music video, after obtaining first place at the Manukau Regional Final of this year’s music competition.
The winner of the Schick Style Award was decided by public vote and there was plenty of fierce competition from the 400 other music acts also competing for the top prize.
“We were pretty shocked when we won,” says bassist Nick Raven. “There were so many other great acts competing. We feel really lucky to have been given this opportunity.”
Guitarist and vocalist Cobber Traiyawong adds, “Filming the video was an amazing experience, we really felt like rock stars and the finished video looks wicked. We couldn’t wait to show it to all our mates, they think it’s pretty awesome that we’ve got a music video on the web.”
The band’s music video for their single Take Off Your Shoes has already received almost 1,000 hits on You Tube in less than a month.
Schick Brand Manager, Kelly-Anne Doyle, is delighted that Razor Fox are making such great use of their prize. “We are thrilled for the boys and hope that this video helps them garner increased public following on their way to future successes.”
Razor Fox are already making the most of their recent achievements, having just completed a series of live gigs throughout Auckland. It would seem the sky is the limit for these three Rosehill College boys.
