Emecia are an awesome Australian band and they have their debut album out now and this is what they have to say.

https://www.facebook.com/emeciaofficial/

1. How did you get into music?

I grew up listening to my dad’s music collection, which comprised of mostly 80s rock and metal. He had cases of mix tapes he made over the years. A lot of stuff that was fast, aggressive and full of passion.

2. How did the inspiration for the album come about?

It was something we’ve wanted to do for years so it inevitably had to happen. It’s essentially a time capsule of thoughts and feelings; trials and tribulations that we’ve all encountered over the last few years. There are lots of things in there that nearly broke me but ultimately made me stronger.

3. How does a song start for you?

Thoughts float around in my head until I purge them on to paper. It usually starts off as a tangled mess. As I keep writing, I start to understand what I’m trying to express. The hard part is working out how to say it.

4. Where do you get your inspiration from?

Life. Things I see, hear, feel and experience. I draw inspiration from anything and everything.

5. Has your song writing changed from when you were starting out?

The way a song forms is still very similar, but these days we have our own little home studios, so the production side of things has become a lots more streamlined. It’s become a lot easier to start putting something together and then tweak it until we’re all happy with the result.

6. What has been the best piece of advice you have given about your music career?

Never expect anything.

7. Do you have set theme for your music or does it go with the flow and changes?

If it’s eating away at me, it’s probably what I’m writing about at the time. Writing, and just generally keeping creative, stops things from eternally rattling around in my skull.

8. Do like to write without inspiration or distractions or do you need a bit of both?

When I’m ready I write, I write. I don’t think you can force yourself to create. It happens when it happens. It’s a cathartic process, for sure.

9. How important is having a plan in place for your music?

Very. We are constantly setting ourselves new goals. It helps drive us to keep pushing forwards. I don’t ever want to fall back on being satisfied with what we’ve done. We always strive for better. Complacency is the death of art.

10. How important is your brand Emecia?

It’s a big part of me. It’s full of my blood, sweat and tears. It’s used as a tool to express things that I don’t know how to express in any other way.

This is the video clip for Hen amazing song In Red. The song is great and the clip is amazing. Really well shot and directed. If you haven’t already go get the song it is great.

Destiny Love

Inspiration is a word I don’t use all that often but when I do it’s for people that inspires with their hard work, their attitude to life and of course for me positivity. Destiny Love is one of those people and for good reason. To me she inspires people with what she does and who she is as a person. For starters she just really lovely, she cares about others and her positivity as a person will light you up.

She has a way with words, every time she writes something, you know she thought about it and it comes from the heart. She is writing a book which I am very much keen to read when it comes out. She is a great singer and her songs to me, breath positivity, harmony and bliss.

She has courses you can do on Udemy which is awesome to me. She does voice over work which I have been using. She hosts Cacao ceremonies until now I never knew what they were. Being there for others is something. I admire a lot. Vocal Opening, Embodiment, and Retrieval,
Meditation and Restorative Yoga Support, Relationship and Life Coaching are just some of the things she does.

There is really so much I could say about her and she writes far better than I do. But all that she does is just amazing. Being there for others, helping others with the skills that she has. She does Yoga, she has videos up on YouTube which you can watch. Her energy and passion are really infectious.

You can donate to her which I do to support in all that she does. You can find more about her at her website here. This beautiful person inside and out, is someone the world needs more of.

Alli Walker

What can I say about Alli Walker is that she is so unbelievably beautiful, she really is such a beautiful woman with a flawless figure. You can tell she takes care of herself.  She is a fantastic singer songwriter, great voice and killer tunes. She is extremely hard working and dedicated to all that she does.  She is also an inspiration person with all the she does and continues to do so. This gorgeous talented Canadian is my site’s beauty of the week and she is going to be a star mark my words.

Hen has released her amazing new song In Red today and it’s a killer track and you can get it from all good digital retailers and streaming services.  But I always buy from ZDigital and they usually offer Flac yay (Note I ain’t getting any money from the plug)

So go on and give it some love and can’t wait for the album

Youngblood have done it again with an amazing new tune and clip Better When You’re Close. It’s an amazing tune and Alexis delivers again on the vocals. They are still one of my favorite discoveries and was worth the trip to Sydney to see them play and of course interview Alexis. I want more.
