Special Interview: Lili Kendall

theaussieword.com catches up with Lili Kendall…

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music?
I’ve always been in love with music, but I got a guitar for my 12th birthday and started learning how to play by myself online, I figured out a few solid chords and started writing words over the top of this one progression… and it wasn’t that bad, i remember having my whole family packed into my room listening to it haha.

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music?
When I write the inspiration comes from where my mind is currently at.  I just want it to be as honest and vulnerable as possible. I will spend weeks writing songs about the same person, same situation. I’m a Gemini, so over-thinking is a past time, I don’t think I will ever run out of writing material.

Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music? I’ve loved music since a very young age. Actually my first appearance on tv was when I was 5 years old, when they interviewed me about music instruments that me and my sister built from recycled plastic.. but the first time I took singing seriously was when I was 16 during a piano lesson. My piano teacher heard me singing for the first time and was completely shocked, and made me perform the song (playing the piano and singing) in front of everyone in the conservatory. I owe her big time!  Continue reading “Special Interview: Lina”
