SPECIAL INTERVIEW: UNBLOOM

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM catches up with Jonathan from UNBLOOM.

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

I started playing drums when I was 13 years old, and eventually made my way into several indie, funk, and jazz bands. My love for production and studio wizardry began when we recorded these projects in various studio environments. I loved the process of tinkering and sculpting sounds to create new and exciting ideas. Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

My love of dance/electronic music, however, occurred when I listened to Disclosure’s debut album “Settle” for the first time. I knew in that instant that I wanted to make music that could move people physically and emotionally.

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

Making people emote to my music is something that motivates me every day to become better at my craft.  I want to make music that engages you on all levels.

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist?

In a world of streaming and metrics, I think getting to 1 million streams would be a big deal for me. I know numbers a superficial basis to mark success, but I just feel hitting that number would mean so much to the validity of the UNBLOOM project. Continue reading SPECIAL INTERVIEW: UNBLOOM

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Calan Mai

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM catches up with Australian singer/songwriter Calan Mai.

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

I always knew I wanted to be a writer. But when I was a kid I didn’t make the connection between music and writing: the idea that songs were constructed and could be about any subject matter. Once I began learning guitar at 13, it didn’t take long for me to start writing my own songs. The compulsion was always there, I just needed the musical knowledge. I’m drawn to songs because they are one of the most concise ways to tell a story. Continue reading SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Calan Mai

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

I worked on a charity album, with a charity called Music for Youth where 30-40 kids from across the UK came to record instruments on my record & one of the tracks got remixed and suddenly I’m sitting next to Lady Gaga & The scissor sisters on the charts. I then got calls from amazing producers to write an original album and on one of the tracks I needed a rapper. I thought I would revisit one of the talented kids from the charity but one thing led to another and I ended up collaborating with Snoop Dogg! I have been very fortunate to get that opportunity & it opened a lot of doors for me!
