Carah Faye is the lead singer of Shiny Toy Guns, a rock band from Los Angeles, CA. She let us in her show early for an interview… Here’s what she had to say about being sober in the music industry.
Q: Why are you sober?
1. I have an addictive personality, so I knew (drugs and alcohol) was something I shouldn’t get into. Since I went so long without it, I asked “Why do I even need to try it, I’m fine without it.”
2. I was introduced to the straight edge movement at an early age.
Q: What is straight edge?
Being clear of mind altering substances.
Q: Is it hard being a music industry while sober?
Yeah, everything’s free! (Drugs) would be easy to get… But now it’s easy, I have zero interest in that. I have so much fun without it. I get my own highs, I just love life.
“If someone’s being goofy because they’re drunk, I just get goofy because I’m goofy.”
