Stonefield Vs Owl Eyes
AMY FINDLAY ASKS BROOKE ADDAMO
What made you want to be a musician?
I started singing lessons at the age of 12 and fell in love with music I progressed to writing and other types of music at 16 and haven’t stopped. I love the beautiful way it allows me to express things I can’t always in my daily life.
What has been the biggest challenge with recording your album?
I think it’s really a mental thing for me sometimes I over think things way too much and I get a bit lost in side my own head so clearing my mind and thinking positive has been a bit of a struggle.
What are you most looking forward to about having an album out?
I am really looking forward to playing my new songs live and mixing up my set. There are a variety of songs to play around with now, which is exciting.
What are your plans for the future? Overseas?
I have really strong plans to head overseas next year but want to focus on getting my album out first and getting a reaction in Australia first.

What made you get involved with The Line?
The Line approached us about being ambassadors and to be honest, we weren’t quite sure of what it was all about. After doing a bit of research and learning that the main message is about respect, we felt strongly about spreading this message that we feel not only ourselves, but everyone can relate to. It’s a bigger issue than a lot of people realise, so I think if we can make some people stop and think about where they draw the line, then that’s great.
What song of your own are you most proud of so far and why?
Ruby Skies (our new single) is our proudest song. It’s a track that has a depth that our other songs don’t have both musically and lyrically. It’s a strong story that is very close to us and I think that when you have that deeper emotional attachment to a song, it’s a powerful thing.
What are you most looking forward to on this tour?
We’re really looking forward to going to new places that we have never been before. One of my favourite things about music is being able to use it as a tool to spread a good message. We also get to go to the snow which is pretty cool, and we have never had so many girls on the one tour so that will be a lot of fun and something different!
What are your plans for the future?
Lots more new music and hopefully having a crack overseas! We would love to play at the Great Escape and begin touring internationally. Who knows what it holds for us, but we just hope to be able to continue what we’re doing, working towards bigger and better things.
