Special Interview: Stellar

theaussieword.com goes one on one with Stellar, the guy from South Florida for an exclusive blog interview.

What can you tell our readers about you? How and where did it all begin?
It all began when I was 13 years old I had just tried singing for the first time and thought I was pretty good! Three weeks later I found myself on stage with my first band at the del ray amphitheater. My career definitely started with a bang. It’s been crazy.

What had you first interested in music?
The idea that you can express yourself so purely. I still look at music like that. Its true expression.

Who motivates or influences your quest to make great music?
Simply the desire to make a difference in someones life. Also for personal fulfillment, but making music is like a never ending journey, its always who is going to make the next big discovery that really drives you.

Do you have any planned tours coming up?
No planned tours as of yet. Still working on getting my e.p finished up and that will be amazing. I’ll start playing shows then.

What are some of your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist?
Truly to inspire people and to do what I love while Im alive. Which is making and performing music.

What can fans expect from you in the coming months?
I have an e.p coming out this year that I’m so excited about. but thats a little while away. I also have a single being released in the next month or so that will really encompass the new sound i’ve been developing.

Success, what is the secret to it and what has been your biggest career highlight so far?
The secret to success I believe is attitude. Its so easy to find yourself in the dumps and unwilling to make the next move. You just need to keep your head straight and believe in yourself. My biggest career highlight I would say was playing Mizner amphitheater in Florida with Damien Marley. That was an incredible show…

Which stars of the music industry do you find inspiring?
I look up to many stars in the industry today for different reasons. The ones I see who are really making it by being unique are who I take after. Justin Timberlake is one of those.

How would you best describe you and your music to your fans?
My music comes from the heart so each song reflects how I feel at the time. My e.p will feature some edginess, and pop along with things the world hasn’t heard yet. Its really different and cool.

What can you tell us about your latest album?
My latest e.p was strictly acoustic pop and turned out to be fairly successful. You can check out the single I released called “Heal You” on youtube.

Are there any new exciting projects in the works?
My single is coming out in the next month or so and will really blow people away I think. For me its really exciting.

The music industry is huge, where do you see yourself a few years from now?It’s hard to tell where I will be in a few years because things in this industry happen so fast. So I really don’t have an answer for that! Exciting things are in the works for sure however.

Name a few of your favourite Aussie artists.
I always loved Aussie rock bands that have a certain sound that really makes them distinct. A couple artists off the top of my head are less known rock bands I’ve played shows with in the past.

The shape of the music industry has changed significantly over the years, including the use of social media, how do you feel about the industry as a whole and what does it mean to you in getting your records out into the public eye?
It certainly has changed! But nothing is fundamentally different in respect to the fact that its always been about just making great music. Social media and internet has given artists more exposure than ever before and I feel like thats a good thing.

Thank you for the interview! What can you leave fans of theaussieword.com with here today?
Be cool! I look forward to touring there and trying some kangaroo 😉
