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”

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist? Ideally I’d like to make a comfortable living out of writing and recording whilst remaining try to myself.

Success, what is the secret to it? I’ll tell you if and when I get there!

What has been your biggest career highlight so far? Supporting Ian Brown to a packed Ulster Hall was pretty special.

Which stars of the music industry do you find inspiring? Bill Withers for his integrity, John Lennon and Bob Marley for their passionate, intelligent, peace endeavours and David Bowie for his vision.

The music industry is huge, where do you see yourself a few years from now?

theaussieword.com catches up with Australian born, New Zealand based singer/songwriter Thomas Oliver.

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

My dad is a singer-songwriter and he used to sing songs to my brothers and me before bed. I have one particular memory of him singing Joni Mitchell’s ‘Big Yellow Taxi’. The message in the song really reached me, even as a really young boy. This really instilled a love of music in me from a young age. 

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music? My greatest motivation to make music is my innate desire to create in other people the amazing feelings I get when I experience good music. Obviously, there’s a selfish side to making music also, but for me I believe it comes second to the first one. 

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

I keep my goals quite close to my chest, actually. But one of them is to create an album that has a significant cultural impact; an album that changes things. Certainly easier said than done, especially in today’s saturated music market, but I believe there will always be more to say. 

Success, what is the secret to it?

I’ve been really fortunate to have some great successes in the past year or two. When I analyse those successes, the thing that seems common to all of them is a genuine belief that it’s possible. We as humans are riddled with insecurities, myself included, but sometimes the most powerful thing you can do to help yourself is find a way to truly believe in the value of your contribution to this world.
