I chatted to Jamie from Infinity Broken well yeah he answered my questions. They are touring this month and you should check them out at these fine venues.
1. What inspired the album Before Before?
Charles Dickens, Black Sabbath and stir fries.
2. What was the song writing process for the album like, was it different to earlier releases?
It was a bit more Stalinesque on my part, more succinct and disciplined.
3. What do you hope people get out of the tour?
A headache they don’t regret.
4. How important is having the right sound engineer in making your live show sound good?
It’s very important. But it’s also important to have enough money at the end of the night to pay them. Often that part of the arrangement is missing.
5. What is your favorite place to play?
Do you mean where? And doesn’t favourite have a u anymore? Sorry…we played in France last year so I’m going to say France. Anywhere in France, well almost anywhere.
6. Are you happy how things have gone for your music so far?
With how things have gone? Sometimes.
7. Who do you enjoy playing with the most?
My nieces and nephew.
8. What does the rest of 2015 have in store for you?
This tour, some other musical projects and what ever else is willed upon us.
Yes Episode 2 is up now with interviews with Kelsey Lewis and Dear Plastic. Watch it people.
Both these tracks are very much worth your time in having a listen to them. I dig them both and the Draw clip is really cool.
Tully On Tully Live @ The Toff In Town 25/4/2015
Tully On Tully played a cracker set on Saturday night and the room sounded fantastic, The soundie did an excellent job of mixing the room. The band was really on fire, I really loved the new songs they had performed, and they were energetic and live. The slow ballady type tunes really got to show off the song writing, lyrics and vocals of Natalie Foster that really shined. They are good band, and with the new stuff they performed, it’s only going to get better for them. The crowd really went nuts for Stay. The song about going to sleep just won me over. All These Words is a song rip to be cranked and played over and over again, it’s a song that really grabbed you in their set. The musicianship on the night was first rate, the band really delivered a solid set that if you just saw them for the first time you would be blown away. Tully On Tully are band that are going to go places and if they keep delivering performances like they did on Saturday, they are going do it.
Gordi is a fantastic Australian singer songwriter that is gaining fans and media a buzz at a great rate. I wanted to find out more, so naturally this is what she had to say.
Absolutely. People have been so receptive to the music I’ve put out in these last 6 months. The support from the blog world and other forms of media has been fantastic and it’s been great meeting people at my recent run of live shows
It’s always different but I get the same feeling every time. Like this thing is welling up in my chest and I have to get it on paper, whatever ‘it’ is. Sometimes it’s lyrics first, like I’ll be driving along and a line will cross my mind so I’ll record it in my iPhone notes and when I get home start working from that. Basically if I get a whiff of inspiration from somewhere I try to churn out as much as I can before I lose the thread.
The support of Triple J is so important to me. It gives me exposure that is impossible to get anywhere else and to an audience that I’m trying to have my music heard by. I have a tremendous amount of respect for the people working there and I have the feeling that once they get behind an Australian artist, they really give you all the support you need. There really aren’t many countries that have a Triple J, so Aussie acts are extremely blessed! Our community radio network is also fantastic!
They could come from anywhere, but usually by brainstorming a few different ideas. I worked with my manager and a videographer friend on the video for Nothing’s As It Seems. We’re about to film a new one for my latest single ‘Taken Blame’. The brainstorming of ideas usually comes from watching hundreds of movies, shows, other video clips and finding inspiration there.
It means a lot of writing and a lot of touring. The most important thing right now is building my fan base both here and overseas.
Adria awesome new song off their amazing EP is worth a listen as so is getting the EP which totally rocks. Check it out peeps.
Those cool cats in Passerine have a sick new gig happening on the 22nd of May at The Espy and it’s totally free. So many good electro acts to get down too, it’s gonna be a ripper.
Have you seen The first episode of The Parx-e Show yet.
Yes after months even a few years of the idea. The first episode is now live and for your viewing. It can be viewed also at 1080p for those who decided to do so.
The first episode of The Parx-e Show has interviews with Australian actor Ella Cannon, Canadian singer songwriter Heather Longstaffe, American singer songwriter Karen Waldrup and Melbourne band Passerine.
Future shows will be a lot shorter episode 2 is only 25 minutes
It’s been a long time coming is The Parx-e Show but end of next week. The first episode will be up if all goes to plan. I’m happy how things have turned out for it. Got some great interviews, but future shows will be a lot shorter in length. A new compilation CD is in the works too, yep I ain’t stopping for nothing. The site will always be here for me. I am a one man operation, I have 10 more interviews to go until 600 interviews. Not bad for a non cool, not hipster not writing for some cool website with cred. Nope I am me and me only.
So if I am a little slack, it’s because of The Parx-e Show and many other things. But I dig what I do and are happy because of what I do. I enjoy doing it a real lot. Have made some amazing friends because of it.
So I ain’t going anywhere.
These guys will be hitting the road in May to support their new EP.
I’m sorry for the lateness in any site updates or what you call it recently, The Parx-e Show is be to launched on the 10th and is fixing up the final bits of the first episode so it’s a cracker for you to watch. But these are the artists I am loving at the moment.
Saw them twice a week ago bought merch and have been a fan ever since they released their first song. Music is so catchy and a joy to the ears.
These Melbourne cats know how to turn it on music wise and write some cracking catchy music and yeah see their interview in the first episode of the Parx-e Show
I love Julia music think she is a fantastic singer songwriter from Adelaide, keep missing her shows, due to me being away but plan to have her on the Parx-e Show.
This artist now living in Melbourne will be one of the surprise albums of the year, I have it, she gave me a copy and yeah it is so good. Her song Keep Her Close is on my last compilation CD which you can still get for free off my website.
Yeah I dig them, so what, I think their music is excellent, great songs, new album is really good and Shots is my favourite track off the album.
I am a Oasis fan and not ashamed to admit it, but Noel new album has some solid songs on it. Like this song.
I really dig Destiny debut album, I think it is unique and special. If you get a chance to check out Home in the Light, do so it’s really well written and sung.
I saw these guys in LA in January at The Whisky and loved what I heard and bought their EP straight away and was hooked and can’t wait for more from them.
Saw this cat play at B.B. King Club in Memphis and was blown away, He gonna go far.
