Jane Rocca, music and culture journalist, takes us through the events that lead to it’s creation, how it was released to the public and the lasting effect it’s had on their creative career.
From Jane Rocca, host of Some of My Best Work:
“These artists tell the story of the songs that mean the most to them – it takes them right back in time and seeing their expression/emotion and reliving a moment through storytelling is what makes these conversations sacred.
We reminisce about the grunge era of Geelong, a time when riot girl movement, feminist fanzines and dirty stoner riffs tore through our youth louder than a fuzzy wah-wah pedal ever could.”
I’ve loved reconnecting with singer songwriter Adalita in SOMBW. We met in Geelong in the early 90s with her band Magic Dirt; I had them perform at a fundraiser at the Barwon Club via my then radio show Collusion on 3YYR and it evolved from there. It’s great to see how much her career as a singer songwriter has evolved over the decades – she’s championed her voice and confidence and willingly shares the details with us in SOMBW.
Sometimes it’s a familiar song, other times their choice is a complete surprise; yet what makes it so magical to listen to is the deeply personal journey that got them there and reflect on what they consider a particular song as some of their best efforts to date.
SOMBW allows musicians the opportunity to delve into their creative past and pinpoint a milestone moment.
As someone who has loved interviewing musicians, artists and celebrities about their lives for print media over the past two decades, the opportunity to host SOMBW podcast is a wonderful extension of that conversation.
