Dan Whitford Interview

Chat with Dan Whitford from Cut Copy and finding out if he is a Beach, City or Country person.

I had a chat with Dan of Cut Copy last week about their latest album. What Dan has been doing during the pandemic and also if he is a beach, city or country person. Also the themes that went into their new and sixth release Freeze Melt.

It was a pleasure to be able to chat with a vocalist of a Aria award winning band and Grammy nominated at that too!

To this day Cut copy are making great electronic music which started with their roots in Melbourne and have now become a world wide name and festival staple.

An act I’ve seen live 5 times before while thinking back but I’m sure I’ve probably caught a set or two as well at festivals along the way. They’ve always been great to see live and put on a insanely good show. So once this pandemic starts to calm down I’d be keen to see them live playing new material.

They’d even be a group I’d see from my car honestly if that was the first type of live music that would be happening here in Victoria.

For a world gripped by a panddemic cut copy have done pretty well to support New order and release a new album.

Also, put their latest album into your playlist rotation as it really is a great addition to the Cut Copy discography.

Roya Naldi Interview

Interview with with Roya Naldi from Chicago about her album release. Music that inspires her and where she plays around Chicago.

I had the pleasure of talking with Roya Naldi from Chicago about her album release. Music that inspires her and where she plays around Chicago.

She has a unique style that is reminiscent of the sounds of the ’20s and ’30s and does so with an amazing voice at that too.

If you like what you heard you can check out more of her music from the album A Night in June.

I hope we can all go back to seeing live music and performing soon.

The other day I hooked up a interview with rapper Scoobie. Who I had come across through friends who sent me some links to his music. As a avid fan of rap and especially rap with a gangsta vibe I was interested and had to find out more.

So. I organized the interview and went to meet him at his pad where I got to find out more about him and his latest EP. Which I listened to in full on the way up on the train and it’s a decent release at that. Which I might add is now downloaded onto my phone and added to the ever-growing collection of great new, local and Australian releases.

I got a real Schoolboy Q vibe from the EP you can judge for yourself as you give it a listen.

He’s in the wings waiting for a chance to be something big and on his way to a solid fan base.

With hard work and dedication, this rapper will go a mile and a half.

Scoobie has an amazing view of the city from his pad where he can sit and dream of being so close to the success while looking over the CBD of Melbourne.


Check out his latest EP Drunk Broke and Almost Famous.
