Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

Its taken me a while to develop my sound, but I've enjoyed the journey! Countless trips back and forth from America going in any and every session I could find. I first started off a few years ago wanting to do folk; inspired by Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell, Sara Bareilles. But after being in LA for a while and trying to cope with its brutal/lonely nature my music took a bit of a darker turn. I still draw a lot of my melodic inspiration from those artists but the production and undertones are not as organic and more electronic driven. Now I draw a lot of my inspiration from artists such as Lorde, Banks and Sasha Sloane.

What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

Probably everything. I mean obviously, I'm so in love with music and the feeling it gives me. But a lot of my inspiration comes from my boyfriend and my family. They give me so much strength and I draw so many of my experiences from them and write about them. They are also the reasons I want to succeed in this business. 

What can punters expect from a CXLOE live show?

A dark and brooding set with musical highs and lows. Dope lighting with songs you can sing along to and cry to. I love taking my listeners on a journey as I feel I'm quite honest as an artist so I don’t mind letting people in.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

To work SMART, not hard (obviously work hard, but you get the point haha) It was given to me by a friend and artist I really look up to Will Singe.

What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

'World of our Love' by Client Liaison.

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

'Comfortable' by LANKS (it's quite a hopeful song but for some reason, I always end up balling my eyes out!).

You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

'Holiday' by KOTA BANKS DUH!

What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

I'm living over in LA at the moment so the last local Artist I saw was Aussie singer-songwriter Bobi Andenov. He performed at a local event called School Night in Hollywood and totally crushed it!! His vocals are insane and his songwriting is next level!!

Tell us about the bands or people in the Sydney music community that inspire you.

Oh gosh, there are so many. I'm so inspired by JOY and Jack River, they’re just totally running their own race and I LOVE IT! There are also two women in the music community that really inspire me as they are the most genuinely supportive women I have come across.  Nina Las Vegas and Kota Banks. They are both so encouraging of women in the music industry and don’t see other artists as competition. Which is what we need more of!! I adore these two so much. And OBVIOUSLY my manager Sarah Donelly she is a BOSS I don't know how I got so lucky.

What are your plans for 2018?

To protect my peace over here in LA and write awesome music!!!!

Meet this week's Feature Artist and Groovin the Moo comp winner, Adrian Eagle. He's currently on tour supporting Thundamentals and he's got a voice that'll melt that heart of yours. Check him out!

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

I've been working on my debut EP which will be out this year. I have been singing and writing all my life but never had the self-confidence to sing for anyone outside my family up until recently. I guess my sound came from my influences and my environment. It's a very natural feeling for me and I feel free doing it.

What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

My greatest inspiration for making music is for healing my own mental health, through self-expression, and by doing what I love. I believe music heals. Also, for my family, my people who believe in me and for my goddaughter's...the next generation. I'm living on extra life and am thankful to be here.

What can punters expect from an Adrian Eagle live show?

People can expect me to sing straight from the heart. I really enjoy singing for people for the first time and connecting with them for the very first time during and after.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

I think the best advice I've ever been given was to listen to my spirit and to do what you love. I'm not sure exactly who first told me this advice but it's been with me and grown with me ever since. I've had good advice from my Grandma and other role models throughout my years.

What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

B Wise with 'The Key ' or 'Natural Woman' by Kaiit.

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

360's track "Tiny Angel" off his latest album. he's a great storyteller and express beautiful emotion on this track.

You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

"Sally" by Thundamentals. Yeaaahh boy, such a banger - you gotta get down to this. I don't get tired of it.

What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

Have bared witness to a lot of local gigs recently. Currently on tour with Thundamentals & B Wise at the moment across the country. They've been such a great vibe and I'm learning so much from them. It's good to see how many people come out to support local gigs and the Thunda's are amazing.

Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.

I'm constantly inspired by music and the community in Melbourne. I'm inspired by Neil Morris and his project DRMNGNOW. Neil has an amazing voice and message that I hope is heard across the country. He's got a song out now on his triple j Unearthed profile with myself and brother Philly called 'Australia Does Not Exist' and I hope you check it out. I'm also inspired and very excited for Kaiit's debut EP to come out.  I'm inspired by my beautiful friends and family. Inspiration is all around me. 

What are your plans for 2018?

I am currently looking forward to releasing my debut EP 'Wings' and am looking forward to sharing new sounds with listeners. This year is special to me with a lot of exciting things happening, thank you for being apart of it triple j Unearthed and triple j.
