Q&A: Pina Tuteri
Define your genre in five words or less:
Country pop rock.
What do you love about making music?
Well it's definitely a big rush, my favorite part is being able to share a story.
What can a punter expect from your live show?
To share emotion, and a bit of rock to roll you round.
What’ve you got to sell CD-wise?
This is my first recording in over 15 years, Wonderyears… will be available July 21.
What do you think a band has to do these days to succeed?
Just play and love it, and whatever happens you are always doing what you love.
What's your favourite song, and why?
To Look At You by INXS. Just listen to it.
When, and why did you start writing music?
I was about 13-14 and I wrote a song about feeling locked up, and I guess the more songs I wrote, the more I realized that this is my life, and I struggled to share it, and still am a mess before getting on stage till today, and I never want that to change.
Do you have a pre-gig ritual? If so, what is it?
Yeah vomit baby… and scotch mmm.
If you could go on tour with any musician or band, who would it be?
When’s the gig and with who?
The Bendigo Hotel in Collingwood is sharing with us on Saturday July 21. M.S.O and Bill Papa will join me and my special guest band, Di Watson, Tony Corsetti, and the amazing Julia Watt and David Bleus, who also recorded and produced Wonderyears… with me.
