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”

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Vox Eagle


theaussieword.com goes one on one with Andy from Vox Eagle! 

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

So Vox Eagle started in the back of a tour bus. Luke and I (Andy) were playing with another band doing and East coast West coast US tour and we started talking about working on some new Psych Dancey tunes. We had both grown up in musicpMla5meJal households and playing since we could walk so love all the old stuff Beach Boys, Beatles, Stones, Zep so wanted to take some of those influences and make some tunes you could listen to at a party or driving a car on a hot summers day.

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

Music motivates in itself. The relationship is non stop, I’m living (Andy) in a log cabin in the Colorado Rocky Mountains national park now so every day is focused around music. A walk up the mountain in the morning is a focus on lyrics. Days are working on songs and nights appreciating other musicians an reflecting on songs, listening to records or playlists.

I think as a musician I’ve always looked up to Jeff Buckley as a singer songwriter and a once in a lifetime artist. Robert Lowell as a poet certainly inspires from a lyrical senses.

I don’t know what id do if I wasn’t working on music, it pretty much consumes every thought from the moment I wake up to eyes shut still re working lyrics as I drift off to sleep. Continue reading “SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Vox Eagle”
