SPECIAL INTERVIEW: John Adams

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM meets UK singer/songwriter John Adams.

How and where did it all begin for you? What drew your interest to the music industry?
Unfortunately music wasn’t a part of my childhood. I was very much raised with the motto “Get good grades and you’ll get a good job”, so all my focus was on education. I did well in school and it wasn’t until I became a Math’s teacher that I started to realise that a “good job” wasn’t the key to my happiness. As I slipped deeper into the 9 to 5 with less and less time to do what I enjoyed I became more and more disheartened. I’d always enjoyed music as a past time and I started busking for a break from my profession. The response I had to performing was so inspiring and quickly allowed me to resign. It felt like such a crazy gamble but I knew I needed a change. It was hard to give up on so many years of training but easy all that the same time. No regrets so far!

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Calan Mai

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM catches up with Australian singer/songwriter Calan Mai.

How and where did it all begin for you? What drew your interest to the music industry?

I always knew I wanted to be a writer. But when I was a kid I didn’t make the connection between music and writing: the idea that songs were constructed and could be about any subject matter. Once I began learning guitar at 13, it didn’t take long for me to start writing my own songs. The compulsion was always there, I just needed the musical knowledge. I’m drawn to songs because they are one of the most concise ways to tell a story.Continue reading

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Danielle Todd

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM special interview with Danielle Todd.

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

Musical talent constantly surrounded me when I was a kid. It wasn’t unusual for me to go to bars to see my dad perform matinees with his country band in the early 90s, or go and see my cousin perform when I was a teenager. Throughout high school I started to book my own shows and made all my family and friends come out to see me. By the time I graduated high school I was a full-time touring musician. It wasn’t a question of whether or not I’d be a musician; it’s just what I made happen. It’s what I was born into.Continue reading
