Special Interview: Jordan Lovelis

theaussieword.com special interview with Jordan Lovelis.

Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music? I grew up in a musical family. My father was actually in a Beatles cover band when I was growing up. Those pop melodies are engrained in me. I have two older brothers as well who taught me how to play a guitar. I dabbled with it in my teens but didn’t have the life experience to write any meaningful songs..After breaking my ankle, at 23, I wrote a song a day for a few months. Things just sort of evolved and I felt like it was time to share them with the world.

NEW MUSIC: Red Electrick ‘Right Here’

The name they chose was Red Electrick. ‘The end of it all’ was their first single released and as they say the rest is history. The boys have worked hard to become one of the best bands to come out of this island Malta.

With hit songs like ‘Who the heck is REK’, ‘Paul’ and ‘Young Again’, they have gathered a huge following of all generations and there is not one single show that does not sell out in a matter of days. Earlier this year it was announced that singer/musician Joe Roscoe would be the new front man. It’s been four months of working tirelessly in their own studio and with producers in Los Angeles whilst also finding the time to perform at the legendary Whisky A Go Go and also in Bilbao Spain.

The time has now come to release the much-awaited debut single of Red Electrick with Joe Roscoe on vocals ‘Right Here’. The sound and style of Joe Roscoe has been blended in with Red Electrick’s signature vibe to create this fun, feel good song. ‘Right Here’ has hit the airwaves, video has been released and it is set to be another hit for Red Electrick.

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Hermitage Green

theaussieword.com catches up with Darragh Graham from Irish folk/pop/rock group Hermitage Green.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? We have a set of brothers in the band, Barry and Dan. Barry and I would jam together and Dan and his mate Darragh Griffin would also. One night Barry brought asked me and Dan asked the other Darragh to meet up. I brought my housemate Felix (who has since been replaced by Dermot) and we just started messing about in a back room of a bar. After a few sessions the people in the bar asked us to come out of the back room and play for them. We did and on that night we were asked to play in another bar, then another and another and that was the start. We all have our own beginnings but mine was a late one. I started playing music myself while in college. I was probably influenced by my parents are they are big into their folk and used have big sessions in our home, so music was always around.
