SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Calan Mai

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM catches up with Australian singer/songwriter Calan Mai.

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

I always knew I wanted to be a writer. But when I was a kid I didn’t make the connection between music and writing: the idea that songs were constructed and could be about any subject matter. Once I began learning guitar at 13, it didn’t take long for me to start writing my own songs. The compulsion was always there, I just needed the musical knowledge.

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

I worked on a charity album, with a charity called Music for Youth where 30-40 kids from across the UK came to record instruments on my record & one of the tracks got remixed and suddenly I’m sitting next to Lady Gaga & The scissor sisters on the charts. I then got calls from amazing producers to write an original album and on one of the tracks I needed a rapper. I thought I would revisit one of the talented kids from the charity but one thing led to another and I ended up collaborating with Snoop Dogg! I have been very fortunate to get that opportunity & it opened a lot of doors for me!
