INTERVIEWS

the AU interview: Casey Martin of Run Rabbit Run (Melbourne).

Melbourne quintet Run Rabbit Run may be new on the scene, but their debut release "Down The Line" is a promising number that could quite easily rival any established folk band.

the AU interview at BIGSOUND: Jono Graham & Sarah Corry aka Left. (Sydney)

One of the many BIGSOUND acts who made their mark on Brisbane last week was Sydney's Left.. The electronic duo of Jono Graham and Sarah Corry were joined by a drummer for their official showcase at The Brightside, where they pulled off a great show, despite suffering some tech issues at the end. What we saw though, was some great sparks of potential from them and it's not surprising Left. has been making considerable progress on the local circuit in recent times. Teaming up with Adit Gauchan (Horrorshow), Left. have been crafting some delectable pieces of sultry and chilled out music that more people are sure to be getting around before 2014 is over.

the AU interview: Seth Haley aka Com Truise (New York)

When I had the opportunity to grab New York's Com Truise for a few questions after his show as part of Brisbane Festival, I understandably jumped at the opportunity. We started off talking about Australia. I asked him, “What were your expectations about Australia if you had any at all?” he said quite matter of factly “Kangaroos” and laughed. He went on to explain further how his trip has been as well as a great discussion about his music.
