Q: Loving the music. How did you choose your stage name? Does it have any special significance? Would you be interested in doing a short interview?

A: Insomnia was a big problem at one point in my life. I started writing songs and making other art to help cope with it... Or at least help pass the extra time I had from not sleeping. I felt that my songs were my "Folklore" (a collection of stories and beliefs). So truly, this project has its roots as my, Insomniac Folklore. And yes; I would love to do an interview. -Rev Tyler Folklore
