What would you say is your greatest strength as an artist?
We both have written together for years now but I think we still find ways to amaze ourselves with how well we can work together. We learn more techniques and knowledge about collaborating the more time we spend in the studio.
Also, given how we’ve had experience writing in styles of Electronic music, R&B, Pop and retro sounds of the 80s, show that we can really have fun pushing our professional boundaries as songwriters in different genres of music. I guess this would be our major strength.
What is your creative process when making music?
Segana for us encapsulates the essence of 80s-style music and aesthetic, so when we decide to write songs together, our minds are automatically drawn to that mindset.
We just bounce different ideas off one another and the piece develops as it goes really, it absolutely helps when both of us are inspired by the same type of music styles and genres
How long have you been making music and what attracted you to it?
We met each other at JMC Academy and became very good friends. We began writing together about a year into our course so we began to write together around 2018. We have had a large break between songs but expect things to quicken up from now on
What is the biggest challenge you have had to overcome as a band/artist so far?
Definitely trying to get the songs played. The pop scene is very competitive and there are so many avenues to choose from as far as promotion goes. We are currently trying a few new approaches and expect to be playing live concerts later this year. This should really move things on a bit.
What streaming sites do you think offer the most value to a band?
We currently concentrate on Spotify, SoundCloud and YouTube music but at the moment Spotify is our favourite platform
How do you think social media or the internet has affected the music scene in your country?
The social media platform and the internet, in general, have really opened up opportunities for independent bands to market and promote their music. The services are slowly evolving and getting better at targeting desired audiences. It should only be a matter of time before the marketing of music breaks out from the current tight control of the major record labels.
What are your friends and parents thoughts on your career?
Our friends and family are very supportive of our band Segana. We get a lot of encouragement and assistance in heaps of different ways. We are very grateful for everyone’s support and encouragement
What does your current song mean to you?
Honestly, just originality. We make it known to ourselves as much as possible that we don’t want to make music that will just fit the market. It’s inspiring that we can go to our roots of musical influences, creating a vintage sound that only we can make. That is something as well we take pride in sharing with our fans not just in Australia but around the world too.
What is one message you would give to your fans?
First of all …..THANK YOU, second of all… we hope that our next song (coming soon) will be the best one yet. Look out for our live concert and shows toward the end of the year, we are currently practising hard and arranging all the logistics.
