Exclusive Special Interview: Benny Walker


Benny Walker catches up with theaussieword.com for an exclusive interview.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music?
I grew up in a very musical family. Both of my Grandfather's played as well as my Dad and his sister. Both my siblings and quite a few of my cousins play an instrument or sing as well.

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music?
The freedom to create and express myself through an art form that I love is what keeps me motivated. I always want to better myself as a musician and as a songwriter. That'll be a life long quest.

New Music: Sia 'Salted Wound' from Fifty Shades of Grey Soundtrack

Special Interview: Beach Youth

theaussieword.com catches up with Beach Youth for a special interview.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? Before we met together, we were playing the music all by ourselves. It all has began in Spring 2013 with the meeting of Simon Etienne and Gautier thanks to free ads on the Internet. We started playing the music together in September of the same year. What was interesting about the project was to mix the influences coming from each and every one of the four of us. 

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music? Our songwriting is meant to make people dreaming and imagine they're on California's beaches. You know here in Normandy the weather is quite bad all the year, so our will is to bring a little of sun to all the people around us. 

Special Interview: Parlement

Parlement have an exclusive chat with theaussieword.com.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? Hi! We were all interested in music from a very early age. I remember buying (Or asking for my mum to buy for me) my first albums and singles at the age of 4-5, The Who, The Police, ...

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music? That drive of making something that will stand the test of time. Good music that will be listened to in 20 years time, regardless if you know who we are or not.

Foxtel releases 'Deadline Gallipoli' SNEAK PEEK

Foxtel’s powerful new Australian mini-series Deadline Gallipoli will premiere on the showcase channel in April, with its ‘first look’ promo campaign screening from this Australia Day weekend.

Deadline Gallipoli is a fresh look at the Gallipoli legend, from the perspective of four war correspondents, starring Sam Worthington as Phillip Schuler, Hugh Dancy as Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett, Ewen Leslie as Keith Murdoch and introducing Joel Jackson as Charles Bean.

These were the first truly embedded war correspondents whose defiance ignited a change in the campaign’s course and whose commitment to the stories of the men who turned the war from a strategic failure into a triumph of the human spirit.

The four hour mini-series follows the campaign from its beginnings in Cairo through to the evacuation from the cove nine months later and finally to 2015 where the life long legacy of the journalists finds its most bitter sweet prize – those who died have not been forgotten. 

Following each of the journalists as they travel through months of this bloody battle, we see the men they meet and watch killed, the friendships they make, the woman one falls in love with and the lessons they learn about themselves and what it means to be a witness to such brutality. 

Filmed in South Australia across nine weeks, the Deadline Gallipoli cast also includes Charles Dance as General Hamilton, the Commander of the Gallipoli campaign, Rachel Griffiths as his wife Lady Hamilton, Bryan Brown as General Bridges, Anna Torv as Gwendoline Churchill and Jessica de Gouw as Nurse Vera Grant.

Deadline Gallipoli is produced by Matchbox Pictures and Full Clip for Foxtel’s showcase channel.
