UM Interview: Sulene
South African born artist and Berklee graduate, Sulene recently released her 4 track debut EP Holding Words Back. Amandah Opoku caught up with Sulene to talk about her musical inspirations, debut EP and much more!
Amandah Opoku: For the record, please state your name
Sulene: Sulene van der Walt
AO: Why did you start creating music?
Sulene: Creating and performing music became a part of my life as similarly as learning to read and write. In fact, I think I knew how to play twinkle-twinkle little star on the piano before I knew how to speak English. My mother is a classical pianist, and I grew up in South Africa on her teachings. I started composing when I was 12-years-old and unintentionally started honing the craft until one day I realized it would became my career, and eventually a choice in life-style and life-long pursuit. When I was 14-years-old I discovered Hendrix and the electric guitar and the rest is history.
UM Review: Hedley -“Wild Life”
Hedley -Wild Life
Record Label: Capitol Records
Release Date: May 20th, 2014
Reviewed by: Amandah Opoku
Vancouver, BC’s multi-platinum selling band, Hedley, are back with their 5th studio album Wild Life! A follow up to 2011s anthem filled album, Storms, which showed a different side to the band with pop, infused tracks producing a darker and more mature sound when compared to their previous releases. Wild Life is no different.
Hedley is no stranger to change as they’ve repeatedly stated that “[We] don’t think that we ever want to stay stagnant and…we always enjoy trying new things.” With 5 albums under their belt, Hedley continues to evolve both musically and lyrically by pushing the limits on what they create. We see things come full circle with this 11 track album as it picks up where Storms left off, seeing a more dominant presence of electronic influenced tracks.
The album kicks off with lead singles “Anything” and “Crazy For You,” both introducing the world to Hedley’s new sound. The electro-influenced tracks shows how far this band has come in their decade long career - from their once pop punk centred tracks found on their debut album release in 05. The quartet’s single “Anything” adds to their previously released hit anthems “Invincible” and “One Life” from Storms. As the previous two tracks from Storms encouraged listeners to stand up and take charge, “Anything” encourages one, that nothing is impossible, and to chase your dreams.
