Special Interview: Lina


theaussieword.com catches up with Lina, the first American / Palestinian winner of Israel’s The Voice! 

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”

NEW MUSIC: Bravestation ‘Up For You’


Toronto’s new wave pop trio Bravestation is back with a summer single. “Up For You” is a soulful, retro inspired track that’s equal parts soothing and upbeat. Working towards their highly anticipated full-length debut, the band wanted to put out a seasonal offering for fans “to turn up to while day drinking on the lake in a boat or lounging/partying by the pool with friends”. “Up For You” is an ode to that euphoric feeling we all long for; summer days and nights, someone’s touch or love, that rush you can’t get enough of. The song sprung from collaborative sessions during last July’s heat wave with producer Michael Sonier and Juno Award winning ‘Engineer of the Year’, Jason Dufour. It was the first time the band worked with an outside production team and it allowed them to hone their craft. Also from these recording sessions came previous single “13th Floor” which appeared on numerous global Spotify playlists and earned a spot in Apple Music’s ‘Hot Tracks’ list.
