Special Interview: Terence Jack

Terence Jack speaks exclusively to theaussieword.com!

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

For grade 7-band class we all had to pick an instrument and my parents had an old classical guitar sitting around the house. I picked it11159531_10150520763874975_1004067807552007832_n up and never put it down. I’ve been playing in bands ever since then. I was in a ska band, rock, funk-ish and bounced around a lot.

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

I’ve dealt a lot with death in my life and it made me realize how short we actually have in our lives. I just didn’t want to spend time on things that I didn’t care about. My aim is to channel the art through me from whatever and wherever that comes from.

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist?

As an artist some of my goals are playing Red Rocks, The Gorge Amphitheatre but on a musical level is to express everything the way I hear it in my mind.

12377929_10150594449284975_7184511111190706837_oSuccess, what is the secret to it?

You tell me! I don’t really know but I think that just persistence, & hard work are good to count on.

What has been your biggest career highlight so far?

I’ve toured Canada twice this year, this time with a full band. Playing across the country is a wonderfully grueling experience. Cutting through the Rockies with my band-mates has been truly great. We’re hitting the east coast here in about 2-weeks and that’s going to be a career landmark for sure. Continue reading Special Interview: Terence Jack

Special Interview: Zain Mitchlan

theaussieword.com’s special interview with Zain Mitchlan.

Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music? When I was six I use to sing to my Kasey Chambers CD while going to sleep every night. From that my parents could hear me singing and decided to get me singing lessons. From then on I haven’t looked back. 2008 was when I saw my first main arena show being the “I’m Not Dead” tour by Pink. Ever since that day I have been in awe of what love music can do, and how it can be so inspiring and entertaining to watch.

12993475_1047083488661605_2851438827059364752_nWhat motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music? Initially my main motivation was to entertain and to create an amazing atmosphere for people to enjoy. Now since being on the tour Australian Teen Expo tour, I’m also becoming more and more driven to share my stories, so that I can help others to feel like they are not alone. I love the fact that with just a song I can make someone feel understood, and that drives me to go so much further.

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist? It has always been my goal to be performing my music all around the world, and just bringing fun and entertainment to everyone’s lives. I want to be able to be apart of not just the music industry, but also all forms of entertainment industry, I just love to get out there and have fun. Continue reading Special Interview: Zain Mitchlan
