I would say the music scene in Perth is a little more intimate. People are really excited to be there. Melbourne feels more commercial.
The Sun started from an acoustic experiment but listening to it now I hear a bit of RHCP and Millencolin.
We started tracking a few years back with Damien Young at Pony Music. The legendary Mark Kennedy joined us with percussion and Barney Loveland did the mastering.
Myself and Mark Kennedy did the producing with tips from my favourite human Damien Young. It was a great vibe. Great professionals.
The song started by bashing an acoustic at a friends house one night and the lyrics just fell from the sky. I couldn’t stop playing it for at least six months.
Definitely eager to put out an album next year. I feel it will hold the best of my songwriting so it’s important to get it right. There will be some big rock tracks surrounded by more relaxed Americana and roots-based tunes.
Lately I’ve been playing the Doomity indie/ alt-country playlist on Spotify which holds pretty much all of my favourites.
Outside of music, I’m a mad Essendon supporter in the AFL. I love the ocean and Alexandria Ocasia-Cortez.
