When I Grow Up…
When you’re young, you always dream of what you’re going to be when you grow up… from a Ballerina to an Astronaut and everything in between. The artists on our line up are no different!
Before they hit the big time, they too had ambitions and dreams – some of them coming close to where they are today! We asked a few of them what they dreamed of becoming when they were a young’un… here are their answers!
“I wanted to be a basketball player who rapped on the side. Now I’m a rapper who plays basketball on the side so that’s okay.”
“There were a few… Tennis player, Actress and FBI agent (I was obsessed with Scully and Mulder).”
“When I was a kid I wanted to be a Machinery Vibration Specialist, but in the end I didn’t get the marks so I had to be a musician.”
“Morgan wanted to be a fireman and then aspired to be a stock broker. Fletcher wanted to be a robot scientist and later thought to be a chemical engineer. Look where we are now.”
Wil Wagner from The Smith Street Band
“Exactly what I am now except better looking and more successful!”
James Carter from Snakehips
Sam Hales from The Jungle Giants
“There was a long time there where I wanted to be a jazz drummer. Studied up a lot and started playing in the young jazz band at the Conservatorium of Music in Brisbane.
It was an obsession for a good while and then a friend of mine at school wanted to start a band… That kind of ended the jazz train for me and put me on to writing.”
Michael Richards from Violent Soho
“I always wanted to be a rock star. I got pretty close by becoming a rock drummer which is definitely something I can learn to live with.”
