I’ve been a fan of Ben Mason for a long while now. I discovered his music via MySpace a few years back and I remember that his tunes were on the top of my heavy rotation list. Why he wasn’t more famous back then I don’t know: his songwriting is timeless, heavily influenced by the sixties and seventies with a soothing voice and moving lyrics.
Facing a tough job market, even for an MBA, I know have to differentiate myself from my fellow applicants. I researched “creative job searches” and came across some inspiring, breakthrough ideas by Alex Brownstein and Brandon Kleinman.

Mila Kunis came on the show expecting to talk about her latest film Oz, the Great and Powerful. But what she didn’t know is that it was the interviewer’s first interview.

Vanity Fair recently had paired personalities who would probably never meet and imagined the conversations they would have. These are hilarious: Martha Stewart, for instance, moans about Tom Waits’ dismal gardening skills, to which he wisecracks, ‘I’m the killer, Martha, but you’re the one who’s done time’.
Example is one of Britain’s most renowned acts – bringing a unique mixture of rock, rap and dance to the music scene. We caught up with him ahead of his visit to Australia for the Groovin’ The Moo tour to talk London, dubstep and getting married.
Coming from humble beginnings (a collaboration between members of Tragic Delicate and Karnivool), Birds of Tokyo have gone on to become one of Australia’s most influential bands.

Collarbones are Sydney’s Marcus Whale and Adelaide’s Travis Cook, a couple of friends that met over the internet and used to chat about music after school on MSN. What they didn’t know in those days was that their chats would lead to them being one of Australia’s most interesting and exciting electronic music duo’s.
J Award nominee, remix king and festival essential Flume (aka Harley Streten) is almost certainly Australia’s man of the moment. Going from playing small shows as a relatively unknown artist to playing festivals like Splendour In The Grass and Falls, it’s definitely been a whirlwind year for Streten.
