Why the name “The Bloom”? Is there a story that you’d like to share with us?

Well, I was at a bar in San Diego and when I was ordering a beer I accidentally asked for “the bloom” instead of “the blue moon” which was the beer I was trying to order. I remember thinking that time if I ever started a band that would be a good name to call it and here we are.

How do you describe your sound?

The band’s sound is indie rock/pop with a few hidden surprises along the way.

What characterizes your music philosophy?

I try to make music that isn’t too serious but I take ‘making it’ very seriously. I want people to enjoy listening to each song on a pop level but at the same time the songs have a strong songwriting undertone too for people who want to dig a little deeper into the songs.

From Western Australia to the U.K is a long way, how did that happen? Also, how would you differentiate the music scene between U.K and Australia?

I actually moved to Europe for a girl. It didn’t work out in the end but by that time I was enjoying living in a big city. So much that I’ve been here for a couple of years now and I love it.

There is a crazy amount of amazing bands in London all competing to be seen every night somewhere in town. There are so many different music scenes and clubs here which is what’s so cool about living in a big city but it’s also pretty hard for a musician.

Where I’m from in Fremantle, Western Australia, there are a few good venues that you know will have great music on every night and they are the go-to places if you want to watch a band. Although it’s a small scene I think the level of bands coming out of Perth is phenomenal. Tame Impala is a good example.

You have travelled all over the world for 10 years. It must have been a very rich experience to have met and interacted with so many people of varying cultures. What places have you been to and which is your favourite destination? Why?

I really like the south-west of France. I’ve  been there heaps of times and I have so many great friends there now. There’s good waves, great food and beautiful scenery everywhere.

You’re also a surf fanatic. So, does that help you with your creativity? How?

The places I travel to are mostly  surfing destinations and the people I meet during my travel inspire me when I’m writing  music for sure! Surfing helps me to reset my mind and concentrate on the things I love in life.

You have released videos of two songs so far “How it Starts” and “She Said”. How important do you think visual narration is to exactly articulate the meaning/emotion of a song?

I think that it is extremely important these days. Any medium to get your music heard by more people is so important! There’s never been so much music in the world and trying to stand out from millions of  musicians of is really difficult so having another way to get your music heard helps for sure!

Can you please explain, “breath is life, and life is music”.

Kind of sounds like music is as important as breathing!

Share with us about your upcoming projects.

At the moment, we are working on our first EP that we will release this summer. We will also touring across Europe in June.
