Phil Joel from Zealand caught up with theaussieword.com for a special online interview.
Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music?
PJ: As an adopted kid you grow up with your eyes open always looking for things that resonate with something deeper inside, and that happened for me when my uncle gave me a beat up old guitar. It was love at first strum. I fixed it up and painted it crazy colors, carried it everywhere and played all day. I drove everyone around me crazy. I guess some things never change?
