Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
I never know how to explain my sound. I see my music as little stories. I try to create sounds that match the lyrics of each song. So my sound changes a lot as I'm going through different things in my life emotionally.
What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
Just whatever I'm feeling really. I could be anxious, sad, frustrated or broken hearted (or all those things at once!) to help me get through things I'll write stuff down. Honesty is a big inspiration for me.
What can punters expect a SOLO live show?
At one of the first gigs I ever did I performed new songs from EP2. I got so connected to one song in particular and I started to cry. I have a whole range of emotions at my gigs. I also love to dance and get a bit sexy. Lol. I love it.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
"Don't let things or people steer you off your path. Stay focused on your path." - Peter Stormare
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
Lyrics are kinda sad :( but the beat is fun!!
What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
That's mean! Maybe a happy cry? Or just a good cry. We all need a good cry sometimes.
- Blacken The Borders. Awesome song from her new EP.
You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
Tell us about the bands or people in the Sydney music community that inspire you.
My producer and friend Neal Sutherland is always inspiring me. Neal is so talented and has always supported my music, he is so much fun to work with! Everyone at Free Energy studios were I record always inspire me. Anyone who is doing what they love really.
What are your plans for the rest of 2015?
I'm going to release my EP2 before the end of the year. I just finished filming an ABC show called 'The Beautiful Lie' so now I have time to do some gigs! Very excited. I'm filming video clips soon. But other than that, I'm not sure! We will see where life takes me.
