theaussieword.com catches up with Dream Dali for special online chat.
Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music?
It began with hearing music as a teenager. I was previously into drawing and creating but music took me over as I started to develop my own emotional awareness and want to express it, much the same as many teenagers who find music and grow into themselves.
