Sola Rosa - Sola Rosa Newsletter Interview

04 Aug 2010 // An interview by Shade

What can we expect to see from Sola Rosa over the next year?

We're looking to release 'Get It Together' in Australia later this year and in the UK/Europe and possibly the US and Japan early 2011 with tours to follow. Also we've begun working on the next album with 20 odd tunes in the bag.

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

I've always believed that musicians that are totally dedicated to what they do don't need any advice. The rest is just experience.

Who would you most like to support live?

Gorillaz would be cool. The we could watch from side of stage.

What is the best part of being a musician?

Making music and playing live.

What is in your CD collection at home?

Too much to mention. Heaps of funk, soul, hip-hop, reggae, jazz, rock etc.

What is your most embarrassing on tour/gig moment?

Back when I was an indie rocker I split my pants onstage.

What is your favourite place in NZ to be?

Waihi Beach.

What is the best gig you have ever performed at, and why?

Hard to say really, there's been a few. Most recently Queenstown Winter Festival.

How do you keep in contact with your fans?

Via our mailing list, Facebook, Twitter... and the occasional MySpace contact.

 

About Sola Rosa

Sola Rosa is one of Kiwi music’s most evolutionary and enduring acts.

With seven full-length albums, four EP's, a handful of hits, countless collaborations and numerous world tours, it’s been a 20-year labour of love for the man behind the music, Andrew Spraggon.

And although it’s punctuated with twists and turns in the form of constant change and innovation, one thing has remained the same – Spraggon’s steadfast commitment to making great albums that seamlessly blend a myriad of genres, from hip-hop and jazz, to neo-soul, latin and funk.
