How and where did it all begin for you? What drew your interest to the music industry? I had a late start. I picked up a guitar for the first time when I was in my 20’s. That’s also when I started trying to figure out my voice. I was never drawn to the industry and I’m really a reluctant participant. I was drawn to words and the way they sing. 

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music? I just want to do some with meaning. I want to create art that holds weight.

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist? I just want to keep travelling the world. Growing an audience and growing as an artist.

What can we expect from you in the coming months? Any plans to tour? We have lots of tour dates coming up in Canada and the USA. We are working on more International dates too. Our new record comes out on October 25, so we are going to try and go as many places as we can in the next year. Continue reading SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Reuben and the Dark

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM meets up with US singer/songwriter Joseph Eid.

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 SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Joseph Eid
