Eliza Hull, Musician: Creative Space
Eliza Hull has a voice that you don’t forget. When you see her on stage, you are carried away with her dreamy story-telling, stirring lyrics and haunting vocals. We met long ago working at Australian Poetry and shared a love of words.
She has had a recent shift to Castlemaine, where her music has developed into a rich soundscape of indie, folk tinged tracks, which showcase her development as a songwriter.
Previous releases, including Eliza’s debut album ‘The Bones Of Us’, have been strongly supported by the likes of Australian radio stations: triple j, triple j Unearthed, FBi, PBS and 3RRR. Eliza has also had syncs through North American TV shows ‘Awkward’, ‘Teen Wolf’ and Canada’s ‘Saving Hope.’
She has just released her new single, ‘Rewind’ and is about to become crazy-busy again!
Where are you working from today?
Today I’m working out of my little bungalow studio, out the back of my house in Castlemaine.
What are you working on?
I wrote a song today, potentially for my next record. I also wrote some music for a theatre show I’m working on ‘Dendron’ which will be at the Ulumbarra Theatre in November, and I edited one of my interviews I did for ABC Radio National’s ‘Life Matters’. So as always, a bit of multitasking today.
How’s it going?
I’m busy at the moment, and will be till the end of the year, but I’m feeling very fortunate and want to try and make the most of every opportunity I’m getting. I’m trying to make sure I keep balance though.
When you get stuck, what do you do?
I stop. I find a breather always works, even if it’s just for a cup of tea.
Who sees your earliest version & at what stage?
My partner Karl. I bounce everything off him. Generally when it’s half finished, to get some feedback, and then I complete it. It’s beautiful having a partnership where I can do that. I trust his opinion.
