Singer Sandie White

Long standing Australian Jazz singer Sandie White interview broadcast on Fine Music 102.5FM Sydney Australia. Sandie tells of her many years of travel singing from South Africa to Europe and gives some tips for new freelancers in building their career.  Note that she talks about "sitting in" o jobs as a form of audition which the Jazz musicians are so much better at encouraging. She moved from one country to the next, building a freelance career from scratch each time.
Very interesting conversation! I wish we'd had more time.

Singer José Carbó

Australian Opera Baritone José Carbó interview broadcast on Fine Music 102.5FM Sydney Australia. José talks about playing the ultimate baddie role in opera - Scarpia from Puccini’s Tosca and collaborating with guitarists on his latest album.  Listen to how we build the story around the purpose of the concert, then help the audience picture the benefits of visiting a venue way out of the city.

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!

Conductor Sam Allchurch

Director of Music Sam Allchurch from Christ Church St Laurence interview broadcast on Fine Music 102.5FM Sydney Australia. I'd interviewed Sam before so we decided to focus this interview on the amazing refurbishment of the 1840’s church where the choir would be performing. When you are promoting a concert, include as many features as you can. A show is an experience. It's not just the music or the costumes but where the venue is situated, the individual performers or the way they work together, the foyer, the food/coffee/wine, the merchandise, the acoustics, the seating, the nearby restaurants. Think broadly about all that the audience will experience before, during and after the performance when you're selling it. Make clear, appealing pictures they can see in their head.
