Where are you currently based?
Melbourne. Born and raised.
How did you first start playing music?
We had instruments all around our house. My Dad and older brother are also musicians. I didn’t really start super young though – I was only about 16 when I started practicing properly
What’s been happening recently?
Lots and lots of gigs. Music as well as being a passion is also my career, so during the week I perform around town and work at Hit Makers Australia – a Singing & Songwriting school I opened in 2013. I also dedicate at least one day a week to writing for other artists and sync agencies. So heaps happening at the moment!
Your latest single ‘Back Home’ will be out on February 18, what influenced the sound and songwriting?
I love the funk. Funk is a genre, but it’s mainly a feeling, you either have it or you don’t. It’s something that’s written in my upbringing. My Dads band The Declase Brothers were huge influences – my uncles on Bass and Drums just created a groove it’s hard to explain. I have an uncle who DJ’d back in the clubs when funk music was at its peak and he would play us stuff you didn’t hear on radio. It was all around me.
How did you go about writing Back Home?
I was actually going to write something for a house artist hence the straight four to floor drums, but when I started adding elements to it I knew where I had to take it.
Back Home is taken from your sophomore EP ‘Coloured Floors’ that’s set for release in the middle of 2022, please tell us about what this EP means to you:  My first album CASSANDRA is mid tempo hip hop and r&b with massively emotional songs to me. Written in a tough time of life I mean the first line of the first song is “I’ve been lookin for something to get me outta my daze”. Coloured Floors is the sun coming up, it’s for the dance floor. I needed to do it to show both sides of my personality.
Where and when did you record/produce/master and who with?
The album is far from just my input. It has the blessing of about 10 other legends that sprinkled their magic on it. I’ll name names soon but yeah there’s some awesome humans that helped me
What can we expect from this EP?
8 songs. 5 of them will hopefully make you dance. The other 3 is me showcasing my songwriting a little more. There’s a song called ‘Cool’ which I think is my favourite one. Don’t expect anything just play it loud and get what you get!!
Who are you listening to at the moment?
Morning Maxwell
Don Blackman
What do you like to do away from music?
Spend time with my family. Life feels like it’s flying by these days!!
What’s planned for 2022?
After this album my focus goes back to the behind the scenes side of things – writing and producing for other artists and creating more opportunities in the industry that way. I’m totally happy moving forward if Mack Moses is the guy you see when you Google who wrote a certain song as opposed to the guy on the artwork
Favourite food and place to hangout?
Ok, so my wife made this dish the other week, she’s vegan so it was like Tofu, Chickpeas, Rice and veggies with all these spices.. man I don’t know what was in it but I reckon it’s my new favourite meal. I added heaps of chilli too it was amazing hit me up if you’re reading this, I’ll ask her the recipe!!!
