Processed with VSCO with l9 preset

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

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

It began really early for me, falling in love with acoustic songwriters as a teenager, but I never imagined I would become one myself at that time.  In my 20s I followed a career in geoscience whilst carry on with music in my spare time. I travelled a lot and that intrigue for the world eventually led to writing songs that weren’t totally awful! It wasn’t until my early 30s that I decided to commit to music as a profession and I have never looked back. It took me a while to have the confidence to take the plunge into my passion, but I have loved every second since.

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Joseph Eid

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

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Crooked Colours

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM catches up with Liam from Crooked Colours.

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

We had all been dabbling in various forms of creating music. Leon had been into electronic music from an early age collecting a vast array of synths, Phil playing acoustic gigs around Perth, and Liam was classically trained and influenced by his dad who was a music teacher. The love of creating music and then playing it in front of an audience was a massive driving force for the three of us to pursue more. Continue reading SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Crooked Colours

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Modern Love Child

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM catches up with Modern Love Child.

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

I was 8 years old. I wanted to impress the girl who was living next door to me, I had a huge crush on her, so I wrote her a song and sang it for her. She gave me my first kiss, so I stuck with it.

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

Everything and anything beautiful and honest. What motivates me comes from something burning inside, I’m lucky that music really affects me the way it does. Continue reading SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Modern Love Child

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: REN

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM catches up with Conor from REN.

How and where did it all begin for you? What drew your interest to the music industry? I started playing the guitar at the age of 13 but what really made me want to get in to the music industry was seeing documentaries about bands like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC on tv. Living life on the road looked brilliant so I decided the musicians life was going to be for me from a young age.51411433_2165041326867937_3206379518109417472_n

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music? Making music has become such a habitual thing that it doesn’t feel like I need anything to motivate me anymore. It’s just something that I do and is a part of my life whether I like it or not!

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist? What I really hope for is a career with longevity. I’d still like to be writing, recording and releasing music until a ripe old age. Continue reading SPECIAL INTERVIEW: REN
