17, female, gay, brown skin & chasing the same dream even if the odds are already against me. I’ll never be ashamed of who I am. The world is mine. If you’re rocking with me, all love is for ya’ll.
This week on triple j Unearthed we're featuring 16 y/o legend, Hoodzy!
Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
The Hoodzy sound definitely came from a lot of trial and error and using different aspects from a lot of genres but my sound is hands down inspired by the grime scene.
What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
Putting my people, my sisters, everybody that I represent on the map.
What can punters expect from a Hoodzy live show?
High energy, blasting sounds & a safe environment for everybody in the place.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
The best advice I’ve been given was to never change myself or my sound for anyone. That came from my no.1 supporter who happens to be my girlfriend.
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
Its definitely gotta be Kaiit and her track 'Miss Shiney'. If those vibes don’t cheer you up I don’t know what will.
What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
Now that ones gotta be Kobie dee and his track 'Jody'. The storytelling in that track is just mind blowing.
You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
I think we all know Onefour. Spot the Difference is the only real way to kick off a dance floor.
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
It was a free show on the beach that Montaigne played. It was crazy. That lady can move.
Tell us about the bands or people in the QLD music community that inspire you.
It’s gotta be Jesswar from QLD. Just the power and confidence that the girl brings is crazy. Definitely something a young girl like me would look up to.
What are your plans for 2019?
The plans from 2019 is just to establish my music in the scene & bring as much energy to the table as I can.View Profile Hide Interview
