Special Interview: Tara

theaussieword.com meets up with Tara for a special blog interview...

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music?
Well, it all began when I was 9 years old, saw a man playing guitar in my parents pub back in Alice Springs, and I said to my father, 'I want to learn that'. From there I got a hunger to learn more and more. A bit of an obsession maybe? Or just a short attention span.

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music?
Firstly my parents, because if it weren't for them I wouldn't be making music today.
Secondly, Fleetwood Mac inspire me a lot, they're a band I always go back to no matter how I'm feeling.



What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist?
Well the biggest would be to be able to make enough money from my music so I can live off it.
It's hard to have a full time job in a different field whilst making music as well. But it has to be done!

Special Interview: KEEDA

theaussieword.com meets up with the stunning Keeda for a very special interview!

What can you tell our readers about you? I’m outgoing, energetic, edgy. I love dogs ☺ I absolutely love dance, music & fashion. I want to travel, am going to Bali in August ! I am a bit of a tom boy but love girlie things… 

How and where did it all begin? It started when I was three years of age. That’s when I started dancing. At a dance school named ‘Glenda Yee’ out west in a suburb called Liverpool, NSW. I did my first Musical ‘Annie’ at the age of 8, then ‘The Wizard of Oz’ followed by ‘Oliver’. These were amazing experiences and where my love for performance and the stage was born.

What had you first interested in music? I think my mother. She was always playing a mixture of great pop music turned up at full level. Eg, MJ, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Madonna. Music has always been a massive part of my life from such a young age. It was an escape for me, sometimes even a healing. 

Who motivates or influences your quest to make great music? I suppose my experiences as a young child and also the love for music in my family. My brother and I both started dancing at a young age and I loved music with great beats that made my feet want to move. This is what I think of when I create my music, I want people to feel the beet and connect to my songs. My inspirations and influences have been artists like Michael Jackson, Shakira, JLo, Beyonce, Madonna and some great music from Rihanna and early days Britney Spears.

What are some of your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist? Honestly for me it’s about creating great music to heal & inspire not only me but anyone else who needs it. To bring joy, happiness and inspire people. To allow them to escape from reality for all of 4mins and take them to a place of fantasy and experience my creativity. To give back to others what music gave me as a child and still does today…. Joy & Peace.
