Despite what the movies might have told you, being a musician – particularly when you’re just starting out – is a cold, hard slog.

 

You never know how much money you’re going to have coming in; you’ve got to make your own way to gigs at far-flung locations around the country; and you work long, strange, mostly nocturnal hours.
 
But no matter how hard being a muso...

How do shows in Melbourne compare to playing overseas? Like Melbourne, I find European cities very accepting and engaging when hearing new genres and a variation of styles. I don’t think audiences differ in terms of music culture-diversity and the appreciation for live music.

We all have our vices. Big or small, varying levels of intensity, they exist.

 

Tim Hulsman’s latest single, Monster, is in his own words about “addiction in all its forms.” Though it's easy to muster up thoughts of rock’n’roll type addictions, and while the song is about that, Hulsman says, it’s also about the everyday vices, about the addictions masquerading as...

The release of their second EP, Purple Jake, will be celebrated by a live performance from the surf-rockers themselves. 

 

Recently having completed a Gasometer residency, the band will drop more of their contagious surfer tunes with the five-track record and a launch gig to match. Eddy Dillon's jangle pop stylings and Scout's catchy punk songs will grace the stage before Water...

Hey there. Who are we speaking to and what instruments do you play?
Hey to you. You're speaking with James. Mcrobin is my solo project and I play guitar, keys and sing.
 
Can you tell us a bit about your average rural performance, and what makes these gigs so enjoyable?
I grew up in North-East Victoria, near Mount Buffalo, so I head up that way as often as I can...

Singer/songwriter Danny Ross has been playing music for more than half his life, but he appears to have had a wavering commitment. Ross fell in love with music in the mid-‘90s at the age of ten, but didn’t release his first EP until 2009; he had a major breakthrough as a finalist on the 2013 series of The Voice; and he recently re-emerged with the single We Are Songs, taken from the...

1. The First Song I Wrote
I was seven-years-old when I wrote my first song with my best friend at the time. It went like this: “Friends forever, make it never, that we’ll fight again. Sorrow truly, if I lose you. Then we’ll meet again.” We thought it was genius.
 
2. The Last Song I Released
I’ve been working on my first solo album, Night Underground for the past two...
