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 musical 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.

The sound encapsulates the free spirit of the American highway and the sense of endless adventure and opportunity on the open road. Continue reading NEW MUSIC: VOX EAGLE ‘No Sleep’
