Posted June 03, 2019 06:16:11If you’re looking for a new musical direction in your life, you’re in luck because there are plenty of options available.
The Australian music scene is a great place to find the music that you want, says Australian artist Sarah Tannen.
“There’s a ton of music to be found in Australia and I think that’s the reason why I’ve been a singer for so long, it’s the music I’ve grown up with,” she says.
“I’ve been doing it since I was 12 and I’ve always had a strong musical sensibility, so when I started to write, it just clicked for me.”
The 22-year-old Australian singer has been releasing her own music since 2014.
She says she has always been attracted to a more contemporary sound, and says she started singing with the likes of Lush, Pussycat Dolls and FKA twigs.
“They were like my family,” Tannens says.
“I’m from a rural family and I grew up listening to their music.
I grew in love with them.”
It’s always been my passion.
“Music has always shaped my life and I can’t really talk about what’s going on in my life without it.”
But when I go to a venue I’ve never been to before, and I’m in a room full of people who I know are very happy to be there, it really does make it feel like home.
“When I’m at a gig and people are dancing, I know I’m connected to my audience.”
Tannen’s songwriting is driven by the love of music, and the lyrics are often a joy to read.
“Some of the songs are very tender, like ‘You’re my rock star’, ‘I want to be your rock star’,” she says, describing the songs in her catalogue as “love songs”.
“You have to be in love to sing them.
You need to love what you’re doing.”
The singer’s music has been featured in local and national publications, as well as a number of local bands including FKA Twigs, The Hypebeasts, and Zonk.
“We all have our own music.
We all have songs, some of us are really good at it, some are just good at playing music and some are really bad at it,” Tans says.
While the singer has enjoyed success in Australia, she’s never stopped working on her music.
“A lot of the bands I’ve worked with have been really amazing,” she explains.
I’ve also got a writing partner who does lyrics and lyrics write songs, and we write music.””
But I’m also a musician.
I’ve also got a writing partner who does lyrics and lyrics write songs, and we write music.”
Music is a part of life, and for the singer, it is always a source of inspiration.
“You get the songs that you’re writing, but it’s all a part and parcel of being alive,” she said.
“So when I’m not writing, I’m just thinking about the people that I’m with.”
