Diana Anaid is back. It's been nearly twenty years since her epic hit "I Go Off", but her goal is still the same - to offer healing to the disempowered.

Diana Anaid took some time to chat with Music Love about her new album, how the Australian industry has changed over time, and how her quest to help the disenfranchised hasn't changed -  in fact, it burns stronger than ever.

Caiti Baker is one of of Australia's leading ladies of soul, but her journey has been marked with overcoming big struggles. She gets up close and personal in this must read interview.

When Caiti Baker opens up her mouth to sing, you are assaulted with soul, heart and brutal honesty. While she is a typical blues and soul artist influenced by Aretha, Etta and such, her music is not just a nod or tribute to the great sisters of roots and blues, rather Caiti herself has battled and overcome many struggles. Couple powerful stories of living with and through chronic fatigue, bipolar disorder and a time of separation from her dad - a formidable blues musician himself - with a musical sensibility and sophistication, and Caiti Baker has the je ne sais quoi to match the greats.

Sophie Payten is working on her 6 year degree in medicine, while her musical moniker Gordi is forging a global music career.

Sophie Payten shows such remarkable dedication not only to her music, but also her studies. This demonstrates an air of gratitude, humility and faithfulness which ought to be recognised and will no doubt carry Sophie - known artistically as Gordi - on to many a success. Perhaps as a doctor, but without a doubt as one of the finest artists to ever come out of Australia.

Kate Bradley and Liz Thomas were sick of hiring gear, so created a brand new musical equipment crowdsource space called Everywhere Roadie.

Being an independent musician is expensive. Often the cost of performing is equal to, or in some cases, greater than, the money you get at the end of the night. The overheads mount up. Line items like gear hire, photographers, petrol, van hire, accommodation if you are out of town, and so on and so forth. One day two musicians from Melbourne got sick and tired of breaking the bank to perform. So they came up with an idea called Everywhere Roadie, a website where you can locally and cost effectively crowdsource everything from an amp to a camera. It's so wonderfully simple, it's nothing short of genius, and it's hard to believe no one else has thought of it. Launched in June 2016, Everywhere Roadie is now being delightfully hit up by happy musicians in Australia, New Zealand, US, Canada, UK, and Ireland. Kate and Liz are headed to music festival South by Southwest as one of twenty music start ups chosen to showcase their ideas, and the two took some time before they leave for Austin, Texas to tell Music Love all about Everywhere Roadie.
