SPECIAL INTERVIEW: RJ Thompson


theaussieword.com catches up with RJ Thompson.

Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music?
Going way way back my parents bought me a toy drum kit when I wasexclusive-interview-with-rj-thompson-01 only about 4 or 5. So my early years were spent learning how to annoy the neighbours! I was well into my teens before I picked up a guitar and started writing music.

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music?

Motivation always boils down to wanting to do the best for my family… my wife and little boy. As cheesy as it sounds everything I do is for them. In terms of musical influences, the musicians I work with influence me greatly. They are all phenomenal musicians and bring out the best in my writing.

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist?
My one and only goal is to write, record and release music that means something to me and that hopefully resonates with people. If that takes me to big or small crowds, I don’t mind. I want to be able to look back at my musical life down the line with pride knowing that everything came from the heart, and hopefully meant something to people.

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Anna Pancaldi


theaussieword.com catches up with UK singer/songwriter Anna Pancaldi.

Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music? My father is a singer and so growing up in a musical family it was something I always thought would be a part of my life, but I just adored the way it made me feel when I used to stretch my vocal chords wide and sing along with albums o1aUEQGdNf Mariah Carey and Barbra Streisand with all my being, there really was nothing comparable.

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music? All my music has been an outpouring of all the moments in my life that have affected, shaped and changed me in the most defining way. That needing to express how I feel when words cannot be found is so very important to me.

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist? I want to sell out the Royal Albert Hall in London and continue to build as bigger of a fan base as physically possible, performing live is where I come alive and so for the rest of my life that is what I want to do. My sights are set as far as the eye can see and I have a work ethic that stretches the same, so it’s a thrilling time to be doing what I’m doing.

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Vox Eagle


theaussieword.com goes one on one with Andy from Vox Eagle! 

Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music?

So Vox Eagle started in the back of a tour bus. Luke and I (Andy) were playing with another band doing and East coast West coast US tour and we started talking about working on some new Psych Dancey tunes. We had both grown up in musicpMla5meJal households and playing since we could walk so love all the old stuff Beach Boys, Beatles, Stones, Zep so wanted to take some of those influences and make some tunes you could listen to at a party or driving a car on a hot summers day.

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music?

Music motivates in itself. The relationship is non stop, I’m living (Andy) in a log cabin in the Colorado Rocky Mountains national park now so every day is focused around music. A walk up the mountain in the morning is a focus on lyrics. Days are working on songs and nights appreciating other musicians an reflecting on songs, listening to records or playlists.

I think as a musician I’ve always looked up to Jeff Buckley as a singer songwriter and a once in a lifetime artist. Robert Lowell as a poet certainly inspires from a lyrical senses.

I don’t know what id do if I wasn’t working on music, it pretty much consumes every thought from the moment I wake up to eyes shut still re working lyrics as I drift off to sleep. Continue reading “SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Vox Eagle”
