My first radio interview in Europe! It was to plug my performance at the local pub 'No. 9' in the cute little city of Kristiansund, Norway. The guys literally called me at 7.30pm and said "Hey, can you come for a radio interview and performance at 8.30pm?" After a quick shower, getting dressed, applying make up and a 15 minute drive, I arrived at 8.23pm. I was pretty pleased with that haha!
While in Kristiansund, I'm staying on a beautiful island nearby called 'Averoy' with my friend's folks. I have a traditional dark red guesthouse called 'Grongen' all to myself right by the ocean!
My song 'Love @ 25' got some love & airplay from Heritage FM radio's on their International Women's Day special program.
I received an email today from Amrap (The Australian Music Radio Airplay Project) that distributes new Australian music to community radio stations nationwide. In one month, I have had tracks played from my EP on 25 different radio stations across all states (except NT), with 5 stations adding my tracks to their station library! Woohoo!
More radio airplay: 2 stations on the same day!
The Rock'n Downunder Show in Nevada City, California (PDT) from 10-12pm
The New Grooves program 96.5 Inner FM in Melbourne, Australia (GMT) from 1pm (and repeated at 10pm).
My music debuts on Australian radio on the Uncharted Wednesday Nights show, 97.9FM, Forbes, NSW Australia (AEST) 7pm.
Last July, I met Jason Lawrence (the presenter of The Medicine Show CiTR 101.9FM) while busking in front of Granville Station, Vancouver. He invited me to come on his show & play some songs as well as talk about the health activities I engage in (lemon water in the morning, turmeric and ginger, using products without chemicals, exercise and more).
Jason asked me to come on his show again this year to talk about my upcoming EP release.
I was interviewed on a local radio station in Kota Kinabalu, Borneo with friend and Indie musician Shaneil Devaser. I have now been on radio in 4 countries -- Australia, Malaysia, the USA & Canada!
