Tell us about yourself, where you are from, when you were young
Well, I’m Australian. I started with music when I was very young. I was surrounded by music since I was born. I took a guitar at a very early age and made progress travelling around. After leaving school I tried to learn carpentry but music was my passion and it has filled all my life.
Tell us about your influences and about your music style
I don’t want to be stuck to a simple style. (I’m going to say this only to beQbe not in my real life) : I have always tried to explore the extremes: Sadness and Happiness and I have made the right music to express these feelings.. I have been influenced by many musicians I have met on my way travelling: Tom Waits, Leadbelly, Screaming Jay Hawkings, Dylan…, people I feel identified with, musicians who express delicacy and intimacy.
Who have you dreamed to play with?
I don’t know , Talking about fame, I have in my head to play with someone that has travelled a lot and express much of human , someone that sees under his skin and expresses feelings lived in the places he’s been to, someone that expresses these kind of things included myself.
What is the story and the message of “Exits”
This album comes after “Release”. The beginning is not really the base of “Exits”. I think that the basic concept in which it moves is LOVE. It is not in the beginning when it shows, for it is a remind, it is something you take with you. In any way there is always and end wherever we go. The end is always an EXIT, a new chapter, a new love. It’s like going out from “the Boehme” and go to any dad’s love.
Written or spoken. Did the story end well?
“Never let the truth get into a good story”. It’s really something very intimate of my life. This story came in through a window when I was very far away from somebody important for me. It’s something very serious and sometimes we have to say “it’s enough”. It’s like when we say: “That’s finished, no more games”. When we know each other we shouldn’t be trying, we simple have to tell the truth, whether it is LOVE or GOODBYE.
Without beard, do you feel Steve Smyth?
Yes, I think so. I don’t know what it is to be without it after so many years. Last year I received a couple of blows, so I had to shave it and I enjoyed after watching it grow and I went on with my job, nothing changed. It doesn’t make any difference.
