The Secret Whisper
The Secret Whisper are Brisbane band who are one of the hottest upcoming bands on the music scene in Australia. They have recieved airplay by Radar Radio and now has gotten radio play on over 42 commercial stations including B105, Southern Cross Today network 2DAY/FOX/MMM. All I can say is that these guys are real good, their music is something special and I talk to Jessica from the band all about it. This is a band I reckon you need to go get their music now.
1. How did the band form?
We’re from a small country town in Gympie where everyone know’s everyone! The guys started a new project and asked if I was interested in singing and it went from there!
2. What has been the highlight so far?
On our arrival into Sydney for our show at Oxford Art Factory, we were told our single had been added to 42 commercial stations (B105, Southern Cross Today network 2DAY/FOX/MMM) around Australia and that our film clip was being played on Channel 10 that weekend!!
3. How did the video clip come about for the song Remember When?
I knew a guy from Gympie that was doing really well with short films, Cody Richardson – we actually went to uni together as well. I asked if he was interested in shooting our film clip and from there he got an incredible team together. The story line was about being tested on where my heart belongs which was set in a huge haunted mansion. I was followed by memories which were symbolised by the projector in the clip.
4. What inspires the band when writing music?
Lyrically personal situations are always inspiring me, usually those about being caught up in a love tragedy haha melodically I guess I draw from my favourite artists, Coldplay is a huge influence of mine.
5. What was the inspiration for the EP Le Jeune Amour?
Le Jeune Amour translates to Young Love – so it’s a literal journey of this I suppose. The Love of a passion, a person and just being alive!
6. Who have you guys enjoyed playing with recently?
Melbourne band Thnkr absolutely blew me away – those guys are amazing! I hope to see them go far.
7. What is the music scene like in Brisbane?
There is some good music coming out of Brisbane and venues like The Zoo are always my favourite!
8. How did it feel to get on Radar Radio?
I’m so humbled by it! It feels amazing.
9. What advice could you give to some one wanting to give a career in a music a shot?
Be prepared to have you heart broken and crushed trying to get where you want to go. Persistence and hard work go hand in hand.
10. How has touring helped the band?
Absolutely – new people got to hear our music and we got to meet a lot of new people. It’s great to just get up in front of an audience who have probably never heard your music and see how they react.
11. How did David Holdredge get involved with the EP?
Our engineer for the EP Sonny Truelove asked if he was interested and he was, amazingly! We are very happy with the work Dave did on our EP.
12. Who would the band most like to work with or play with?
13. How has radio and the media received the EP?
We’ve had a few reviews of our EP so far, none of them have been bad yet! haha
14. What is next for the band?
I’m am off to Africa for a month after our final show of the tour, as soon as I get back we’ve got some dates supporting our childhood muses The Getaway Plan and after that we are heading to the studio to record a new single!
