How and where did it all begin for you? What drew your interest to the music industry?

I was always writing poetry as a child and have kept a journal since the age of 6. There’s always been a desire to share my point of view and my writing. I found the best way to express all of that was through the craft of becoming a singer songwriter.  It brings me a lot of joy. Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Mathew V – ‘Flashback’

The new single ‘Flashback’ from Mathew V… “Writing this song was one of the hardest things I‘ve had to do in my life. I wrote this song about my experience with sexual violence/rape at seventeen years old, and how that situation has influenced and affected my life today. It was something that I always knew I had to process, and had always avoided. But with every new song I wrote, I still had this in my closet, this weight on my chest.”Continue reading

How and where did it all begin for you? What drew your interest to the music industry?

I started to really become interested in playing and writing music when I moved back to Alice Springs from the USA. Being the son of an avid blues fan/guitarist, and having not much to do in a small town, I became obsessed with every aspect! Learning guitar from my dad at first gave me the courage to develop my own style and eventually venture out into playing with bands and recording on a four-track tape recorder in my garage! I guess since then its come a long way.Continue reading

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: John Adams

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM meets UK singer/songwriter John Adams.

How and where did it all begin for you? What drew your interest to the music industry?
Unfortunately music wasn’t a part of my childhood. I was very much raised with the motto “Get good grades and you’ll get a good job”, so all my focus was on education. I did well in school and it wasn’t until I became a Math’s teacher that I started to realise that a “good job” wasn’t the key to my happiness. As I slipped deeper into the 9 to 5 with less and less time to do what I enjoyed I became more and more disheartened. I’d always enjoyed music as a past time and I started busking for a break from my profession. The response I had to performing was so inspiring and quickly allowed me to resign. It felt like such a crazy gamble but I knew I needed a change. It was hard to give up on so many years of training but easy all that the same time. No regrets so far!
