An Exclusive Interview With Aspiring And Talented Artist Daniel Hennessy
Daniel Hennessy is a 32 year old aspiring and talented artist, from Brisbane, Australia; who has hit the ground running since producing his music in 2017. “People often ask me, what’s my genre of music? I just simply say I’m an artist in the industry, [sic] I mean some of my songs I sing are pop/acoustic and a lot of other songs are hip hop, so it just depends on the mood and how the music sounds I guess”.

Q:When you decide it’s time to make a new record, is that more exciting or stressful?
Ans: I would have to say both. Sometimes it can be very stressful especially finding the time to produce a new record. Other times, I can experience writer’s block and that can really throw everything off.
Q: How easily do songs tend to come to you?
Ans : It comes and goes, a lot of it depends on my mood and how I’m feeling so I just make the most of it.
Q: For our readers who have never heard your music, explain your sound in 5 words?.
Ans: I would have to say energetic, powerful, big, emotional and catchy
Q: At what age did you start singing?
ANS: I think I was about 16/17, people said I was good so I’ve kind of just gone with that ever since haha.
Q:Who are your inspirations?
Ans: I have so many, I love Bliss and Eso, 360, Hilltop Hoods, Eminem, Post Malone the list goes on.
Q: If you could perform with anyone, in the future, who would it have to be?
Ans: I would love to perform with Bliss and Eso, their performances are full of energy!
Q:Do you have any events coming up or recording going on right now?
Ans: I’m currently in the process of producing an E.P so I’m very excited with this production coming out. Once I send it off I will start looking at doing some gigs.
Q: Which famous musicians have you learned from?
Ans: Honestly, Ed Sheeran. During an interview I watched, his advice to upcoming artists was to just keep putting your music out there- even if its not that great, because each song is an improvement from the last.
Q: How do you balance your music with other obligations – mate, children, job?
Ans: It can be very hard trying to balance everything, I honestly didn’t expect to be this busy with my music but I generally try and spend an equal amount of time with all of my commitments. A lot of the time it doesn’t go to plan though haha.
Thanks for taking time out of your day:)
