NEW MUSIC: Chris Jobe ‘Lonely Lives’

“Some of us get to walk through life unbothered by our past embarrassments. Others wake up in a cold sweat recounting numerous emotional punches life has thrown. We are defined by our failures and mistakes, but we are healed by the people who care enough to help us through whatever that struggle may be. This message is conveyed in Chris Jobe’s endearing new video for ‘Lonely Lives,'” Ones To Watch’s Kathryn O’Leary wrote on Thursday. “Following Jobe on his precarious New York City adventures, ‘Lonely Lives’ is a metaphor for fighting isolation and trying to let people in… [It] emulates the lonesome feeling we have when we chose to hide our emotions. Though the people in your life may try their best to get you laughing again, humiliation is never easy to combat.”Continue reading

Special Interview: Brook Chivell

theaussieword.com catches up with Brook Chivell.

Give us an introduction, how did it all begin? 
Hi Brian first let me start by thanking you so much for having me.
My mum tells me that as a toddler I used to stand up in my cot and sing little tunes. Not words but tunes. So I think that even before I knew that I loved music, I loved music. All through primary and high school  I was involved in music classes singing, playing keyboard and, every parents dreaded, recorder. Lol. When I was 17 a friend showed me the 3 chords to play ‘Wild Thing’ and the rest is history.

Special Interview: TALES

theaussieword.com catches up with Tush from Tales!

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? Hey guys, It’s Tush from, Tales, and we all live in little old Adelaide! Our band started off in 2015 with our old name ‘The Winter Gypsy’. We’ve been writing ever since! My first interest in music came from pure boredom. I was recovering from an injury, and my sister had literally stopped playing guitar (she was the musician in the family) to take up photography and graphic design. As her interests changed, she gave me her guitars, taught me how to play Wonderwall, and the rest is history.Continue reading
