Special Interview: AMISTAT

theaussieword.com goes one on one with German twins AMISTAT!

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music?

I started playing guitar at the age of 6 and that’s when I knew, standing on stage and creating music is all I want to do for the rest of my life. Josef started singing at the age of 10 and that’s when we started play music together. A few years later I started singing and we formed our first band with a few of our best friends! We never really liked school so we used to lock ourselves in our rooms and play music for hours and hours just to escape everything.

Amistat Nov 2017

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

There is something very special about being able to express yourself through music and the way you feel in front of others. Being able to share your views on life and your life-experiences with your audience makes you feel like it’s possible to actually make a change in this world. It’s always very important that what we create comes from a genuine and honest place and it’s done for the right reasons.  Continue reading “Special Interview: AMISTAT”

Special Interview: Natalie Pearson

theaussieword.com catches up with Australian country artist Natalie Pearson!

Natalie Pearson HIGH RES PROMO

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music?

Music began for me when I was about 5 years old. My mum took me to the video store and we hired “Annie” the musical, and I watched it over and over again until I knew every word and I’d sing the songs constantly. I was invited up for a casual karaoke party with some friends from a performing arts school, and belted “Tomorrow”. No-one could believe that a big voice came out of a tiny five year old. My mum was encouraged to put me into singing lessons, and I auditioned for my first musical (Annie of course), and enjoyed every minute. I don’t think there has been a time in my life that I haven’t been immersed in music. I went to a performing arts highschool, and as soon as I was old enough to sing in bars, I began to really cut my teeth in the live band scene. I started writing my own music a few years ago, and have really focused on creating a viable career doing what I love.
