“The whole Americana renaissance is something I’ve definitely noticed,” Lost Ragas told us in 2015. “Festivals we’ve been getting picked up for are getting more aligned with this movement, like Dashville Skyline in the Hunter Valley and Out on the Weekend in Melbourne. But I think Australian music has always had a strong country scene. There are so many artists, and if you look back there’s a really strong Aboriginal scene aligned with it too. There’s a whole culture of great country singer/songwriters in the Aboriginal community, all over Australia.”

“I really play music for myself. It’s a contradiction, of course, because then you record it, you play live shows and hope people like it. But my main drive to pick up a guitar is kind of selfish, it’s just something I need to do. I think a lot of musicians are like that.”
