Didirri

Read Interview

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

I developed a sense of storytelling and everything else kind of just fell into place. Ideas are always changing and growing and expanding so it's hard to tell when or how I developed a sound. I like to work in a cave when recording. I like to listen to very specific artists and draw inspiration from them. I learnt to trust my gut feeling a lot. I learnt to not be afraid to tell myself that something isn't right or isn't working, always remembering that things need time to simmer and to spice them up in the right way. And I keep trying to add things to tracks that are just for me and that no one may notice.

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

Greatest source of inspiration would definitely be other musicians and other artists. Just other people and their stories really. I'm reflecting on my own experiences and tying theirs together.

What can punters expect from a Didirri live show?

It will depend on whether they see me perform solo or with the band. They are definitely two very different experiences but I try to make it feel like I am always playing to each audience member one on one.

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

"If you have a plan B you don't realistically think you can achieve plan A. If you fail to achieve plan A, just make a new plan A and screw plan B" - Jack the Bear (Mastering Engineer).

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

I always go back to Paul Kelly for inspiration. He's great to get over anything you're going through. 'Meet Me In The Middle of the Air' is the song by Paul Kelly that I would recommend.

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

'Boys Will be Boys' by Stella Donnelly.

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

'The Cracks' by Peter Sonic.

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

Tom Walker and the Sick Individuals. Mesmerising.

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

Yes, yes, whatever... Hayden Calnin, Sonija Yves, Jordie Lane and Angie McMahon. They are all just being very, very real!

What are your plans for the rest of 2017?

MAKE SOME MUSIC!!! The EP is nearly done.
