Clear Effect

Have you always been musical?

Evie: I’ve been musically inclined for as long as I can remember! I began singing and playing piano at a very young age.

Singing/performing/entertaining is one of the most important aspects of my life – it helps me to express and release my emotions, gives me a source of inspiration unlike no other and rewards
me with an unmatched, indescribable ecstasy. Being a musician has sculpted me into who I am today – I simply would not be the same person without it.

Reece: I have been musical from a very young age. It all started when my uncle offered to teach me a song on his guitar at the age of 7 although he was very unwell. Not long later, he unfortunately
passed away and the desire to still learn a song for him was there. My next birthday, I received my first guitar and now I have more musical equipment then I could ever dream of.

What/who are your musical influences?

Bailey: Since a young age and my mothers fondness of him, I have always looked up to the last true Rockstar, Michael Hutchence. From then on the likes of Indie bands, Spacey Jane, Ball Park
Music, The Vanns, Holy Holy, Lime Cordiale and R&B/soul artist, Khalid have really had an impact on my musical taste and eagerness to pursue a musical career.

What/who are you listening to now? And the favourite line from a song?

George: Right now I’m listening to Mac Miller, Ocean Alley, Sticky Fingers and a lot of rap. Do you still practice regularly?

Bailey: All the time! Whenever we get together during the week which is usually around 2 times a week, the day before a gig, the morning of a gig and right before we jump up on that stage!

What instruments do you play?

Darcy: In the band setting, the drums. Although the first instrument that I started learning was the guitar, then the piano, then the drums.

George: I play the guitar, bass, drums and a little bit of keys. In the band I’m on the bass and I love it.

What gig would you like to have been/ gone to?

Evie: Put me in the front row at a Sticky Fingers, Russ, or Billie Eilish concert and I’m in heaven!

Reece: I would absolutely love to see my friends, and incredibly talented, ‘Jesse Morris Band’ play again.

Bailey: July 13 1991, INXS at the Wembley Stadium.

Darcy: I think QUEENS performance at Live Aid would have been truly something out of this world
and if I could only pick one to have been/gone too, that would definitely be it. Absolute legends and
changed the music scene forever.

George: Rage Against The Machine live at Woodstock 1999, they’re the band that I would’ve
loved to see back in the day. I’d love to go throw down in one of their mosh pits!

If you could play any gig or venue, where would you play?

George: I’d love to headline splendour or something like that.

Darcy: If we ever had the chance to perform for Triple J’s like a version, that would be the highlight
for me. I’ve watched so many different artists put their own spin on classics and it just blows me away every single time. How they can change it enough to bring a whole new meaning to a song and how they can evoke different emotions.
