Valdaway

Valdaway Press Shot

Valdaway are cool Aussie band doing good things this is what they had to say about it all.

https://www.facebook.com/Valdaway

1. For someone unfamiliar with your music, how would you describe Valdaway?

We often get described as Indie Rock but we are a little heavier in places so are a mix between Indi Rock, Alternative Rock and Grunge. Being a band made of three energetic crazy brothers and a mate we all bring different influences to the table and it works.

2. Tell us a little bit about your writing process. A peek inside the inner workings of the band if you will?

More often than not our writing is collaborative and often happens while Jamming. We usually start with the music first and then layer over a vocal melody and then add lyrics to suit the vibe. I have 4 or 5 books of lyrics I’ve penned over the years so sometimes I scroll through them and something just fits or I rewrite parts I like to suit. It’s always an exciting vibe and our song writing is often spontaneous. Someone starts playing a rad beat or riff and we just start jamming it out.

3. As far as breakout success is concerned, is it all about the strength of a song or does being in the right musical climate at right time make all the difference?

My personal opinion is that more often than not it is the latter… music and fashion are interchangeable and when something is cool and your doing that it makes it easier providing your one of the first doing it. There are exceptions though when something epic and completely fresh is written that just explodes out of what seems like nowhere (even though more often than not they have been honing their style and craft for years) such as Gotye and Lorde. We haven’t really deviated from our path and what we love playing and we feel like it’s getting close to the time where it will catch on.

4. How important is social media to you in regards to engaging with an audience?

Super important! We could be doing a lot more with it but being able to reach out and engage with people who love what we are doing in real time is not only powerful but awesome.

5. What inspired you to take music more seriously?

Seeing live music is what did it for me. I remember my first ever-live show was an All Ages gig that Frenzal Rhomb did… I was blown away and instantly got hooked. Casey saw shows earlier being the eldest brother but that was definitely a moment for me.

6. What’s spinning on your playlist atm? Any guilty pleasures?

A lot of different stuff lately. Cage the Elephant, Sticky Fingers, Sound Garden, Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World, Bag Raiders… in fact a lot of variety really. I love Pandora for that; you discover so much awesome new music with it. I did stick some 80’s and 90’s pop on the other day for a bit of a road trip, was a great old time.

7. Are you a fan of keeping the album format alive or do you think there’s more benefit to release singles or EPs with the influence of streaming platforms arguably shortening attention spans?

I’m a big fan of sitting and listening to a well-crafted album that has a certain flow to it from start to finish. I think there will always be a place for the album format but clearly the way the market is heading it’s about releasing many singles or EP’s to keep relevant and in people’s minds more often.

8. When not consumed with all things musical, what do you do to tune out or reset?

Hit the beach… there is nothing better to clear your mind and so many activities to do. It’s also great to go on some sort of adventure. We also love pranks and messing about with each other

9. Your album ‘Boom Shake Heartbreak’ is out now with the single ‘OK’ doing the rounds, what does the immediate future hold?

We’re launching another single from the album in January and touring. We’re planning on heading over to the USA for some shows later in the New Year too.

10. Lastly, Prince or Michael Jackson?

Prince because if I don’t say that Dylan will kill me.

Nicola Brown

Nicola Brown is a fantastic singer songwriter, bright future from the UK and this what she had to say.

1. How did did you get into music?

I was about 4 when I started really loving Michael Jackson and from there, I went on to explore different genres. By the age of 14, I had my first guitar and began gigging and organizing my own tours.

2. What has been the highlight so far?

I absolutely love gigging with my band, it makes you feel like all your hard work is paying off and you can finally hear your songs in full swing.

3. What was the inspiration behind the new song?

My EP, is based around the idea of coming of age, as I started writing it at the age of 14. I feel like it completely describes my life up until 2015. It will be released in February.

4. What inspires you when writing music?

Any big event will trigger a song. I feel the only time I am not writing music is when everything in my life is going smoothly (which is not very often lol).

5. Do you have moments where you just can’t write and need to focus on something else for a while?

Writers block is definitely a thing, but I think using different instruments to write material is a must in these situations. You need to get your mind stimulated and it won’t happen using that same guitar in your bedroom. I recently went home for Christmas, and found my boyfriends old guitar from when he was 8 years old. The minute I picked it up a song just came out of thin air. It was magical!

6. Who have you enjoyed playing with recently?

Growing up, I listened to a lot of Nizlopi and always said that it would be an absolute dream to support him at a gig. A couple of years ago this actually happened!! I think this would have to be my biggest achievement yet.

7. What it is the scene like where you are from?

The town I grew up in is the seaside town of Bournemouth and it is very music orientated. As a teenager I would be going to gigs most weekends and spending my Friday nights down the beach. I now live in the outskirts of London and it very different. The music is more diverse and experimental, I love it!

8. How has social networking helped your music?

Social network has helped me reach out to fans on a more personal level. It also lets me see who is listening to my music and where which allows me to market my music to the effective areas.

9. What advice could you give to some one wanting to give a career in a music a shot?

Don’t think twice just do it! Chances are you will be much happier doing something you love then doing something that is academically pleasing to your friends and family. I had to make these choices a few years ago, and all I did was ask myself what makes me happy and I found my answer.

10. Who would you most like to work with or play with?

Amy Winehouse.

11. What is next for yourself?

I am currently working on my next album, and I have a few more songs to write yet. Once this is released I would like to tour outside of the U.K.

So it’s nearly the end of 2015 and boy what a year it has been. I’ve been to America and had the most amazing time. I got to hang out again with my dear amazing friend Michelle Page again after so long and really that was something special and a lot of fun that I will never forget. I plan to go back to America hopefully really soon. Being able to meet Melissa Johnston, Heather Longstaffe, Hilary Kennedy, Kelsey Lewis, Heidi Schwartz & Karen Waldrupt was something special also. Plus hanging with Ella Cannon again after so long waa the icing on the cake. Also, interviewing a lot of these people for The Parx-e Show was really cool to do.

Starting the video show and doing 600 interviews is also something of an achievement for me. I’ve done more than 10 shows and it’s been a lot of fun. I am gonna do heaps more. Chasing up interviews and so on. I’ve interviewed some totally awesome people this year like Michelle Ellen Jones for starters.

One thing that is changing I ain’t doing any more reviews. Look I am may do the occasional review but I am too bloody positive in my reviews. I need to be more honest and review stuff that I may not like to be fare and balanced. Plus I wanna do more rock & electro interviews and really big name artists. I am ready for the next level. I have been doing this for so bloody long, It’s time to move up.

I am also gonna look at ads on the site. To help cover costs and help things move forward. I’ve enjoyed doing what I have been doing so far with the site but I wanna go higher and higher and I hope to be able to do this.

For all the support you all have given me either being a person I’ve interviewed, friends, family, publicists and so on. Thanks but next year for me is all about changes to Parx-e. It’s gonna be a blast and totally rock.

‘MY BONES’
Those with a keen ear and an appreciation for the Brisbane music scene may well recognise
members of both celebrated alt-rockers Lucha Libre and lowdown electronic act Tremors within
the ranks of precociously talented new Brisbane trio, Landings.
Debut single, ‘My Bones’ was recorded partially at home and partially in John Steel Singers’
studio, The Plutonium before being mixed by acclaimed Australian producer Jean Paul Fung
(Silverchair, Birds Of Tokyo).
“My Bones is about moving on, starting anew and avoiding the temptation of a past relationship,
influenced by relationships where someone feels trapped and wants to experience more of the
World, but becomes too used to the comfort of their situation.” Liam Quinn, Landings

Shannon Hurley is the complete package, extremely talented singer songwriter as well as being extremely beautiful. I’ve been a supporter for a while. Thinks she has an incredible voice which you can hear on such tunes as this. Yes she sings on trance tracks also. I gotta admit she has been on two Parx-e compilation CD. So a little bias there but hey I dig what she does.

You can find more about Shannon Hurley Here.

This is why she is my beauty of the week.
