Cellist Zoe Knighton

Australian cellist Zoe Knighton talks about the World Premiere work "Hidden Thoughts 2: Return to Sender" by Katy Abbott. The libretto was created from some of the 2,000 Australian letters sent to the asylum seekers held in Detention camps on the island of Nauru which were returned unopened. 
The quartet has built a huge following over the past 20 years. She mentions the value of artists in society which is something you need to remember as well. It's time for the world to change their view on Artists always being starving or doing gigs for free.  Find your own value in what you contribute to the world - have a good think about that - then the vibe you put out when you go talk to fellow artists or clients will change their view of you.

Artistic Director Violinist Madeleine Easton

Australian Artistic Director violinist Madeleine Easton interview broadcast on Fine Music 102.5FM Sydney Australia. Madeleine talks about her work in London with some of the great orchestras there, her connection to Sir John Eliot Gardiner and her founding the Bach Akademie Australia. You'll find a more recent interview when I first started DrummRoll with some wonderful career building tips and hints.  She's so enthusiastic, it's no surprise she was able to go overseas and build a freelance career from scratch.

Artistic Director Cellist James Beck

Australian Cellist / Artistic Director James Beck interview broadcast on Fine Music 102.5FM Sydney Australia. James talks about the ways he opens the senses of the audience to more deeply appreciate music via the Sydney Art Quartet.  He's got an interesting story about working in another industry to be able to look back at music and change the way he presented it. This spurred him on to start a very different type of group where the performance was an experience including other senses.

Singer Songwriter Katie Noonan

Australian ARIA Award winning Singer Songwriter Katie Noonan interview broadcast  on Fine Music 102.5FM Sydney Australia. Katie talks about the making of her album “The Glad Tomorrow” with the Australian String Quartet using poems of Australian Indigenous poet Oodgeroo Noonuccal.  Katie's interesting to listen to because she's built on good solid singing skills which allows her to work with musicians from many different genres. This introduces her music (=albums) to many different audiences too. So, someone who may have seen her with a Rock band might remember her name and go see her in a Jazz concert. She's brilliant at always finding new ways to grow and perform. Never predictable!
