Mushroom Group launches new music-focused podcast Some Of My Best Work
Mushroom Group has announced a new music-focused podcast exploring the creative process of artists.
Some Of My Best Work pairs music and culture journalist Jane Rocca with a number of prominent musicians to discuss the creation, release and impact of their most acclaimed musical works.
The seven-episode series will feature appearances from Australian and international artists such as Mansionair, Jack River, Adalita, Alex Gow, Ladyhawke and Hayley Mary.
Episode one, which is out now, sees Rocca connect with Gordi to discuss the making of her song ‘Volcanic’, a standout track from last year’s Our Two Skins.
Rocca said that hosting Some Of My Best Work was a “wonderful extension” of her career as a music journalist and touted the podcast as a must-listen for music fanatics.
“These artists tell the story of the songs that mean the most to them – it takes them right back in time and seeing their expression/emotion and reliving a moment through storytelling is what makes these conversations sacred,” Rocca said.
“Sometimes it’s a familiar song, other times their choice is a complete surprise; yet what makes it so magical to listen to is the deeply personal journey that got them there and reflect on what they consider a particular song as some of their best efforts to date. Some Of My Best Work allows musicians the opportunity to delve into their creative past and pinpoint a milestone moment.
“As someone who has loved interviewing musicians, artists and celebrities about their lives for print media over the past two decades, the opportunity to host SOMBW podcast is a wonderful extension of that conversation.”
Some Of My Best Work marks the Mushroom Group’s third foray into music podcasting, following on from last year’s 180 Grams and the recently launched weekly podcast Hit Different.
