Alternate Pop Sweetheart Making Soundwaves

Emerging young Sunshine Coast songwriter and alternative pop artist Doolie has been gaining popularity while catching the attention of a host of music industry professionals in Australia and abroad. Doolie's strong lilting vocals and modern percussive driven sound is a refreshing entry into the current music scene. Putting a lot of focus in the last three years into live performances, Doolie has an EP release marked for the end of 2016 and admits, building a career whilst a challenge, is a top priority.  As she draws inspiration from established musicians like Banks, Vera Blue, Airling, George Maple and Flume, it is clear Doolie is carving her own niche in today's scene. The recent nomination for 'Most Promising Female Songwriter' in the Queensland Music Awards is an indication of her talent and dedication to her passion, as these nominations are generally reserved as a benchmark for musicians who have a more established profile. Culminating in a win for ‘Best Song’ in the schools category at the QMA’s for her soon to be released single ‘Pristine’, it looks like the momentum just keeps gathering. This award had her up with some of the most impressive artists known on the Sunshine Coast including Bearfoot, Ayla, The Brains Trust, Paul Cowderoy and Sahara Beck.

"I'm super excited to have been nominated for the QMA's in two categories. It's a great start to my year and now I can really see it heading in the direction I want it to."

So I say... Take yourself back to the last time you were listening to the radio and had to raise the volume cause you were groovin’ in your seat…smooth and confident with a little sass, the superb vocals from this young lady are going to skyrocket her to success. Doolie has been writing and recording since the age of ten with a list of festivals and performances under her belt to rival any artist. 2016 has been a busy year for and attending her recent EP Launch the crowd was certainly taken with her upbeat lyrics and catchy tunes, the upcoming release will no doubt see Doolie blast into the alternative pop stratosphere with ease. Her live band performance is something else and I can certainly see her emerging directly with a very bright future, supporting acts like George Maple, Airling, Elizabeth Rose and the like, with her amazing talent.

Filling the Girl Punk Voiid

Walking into the Foundry early, I was pretty keen on the night's line-up. There was a crowd starting to mill around the stage and a bit of a buzz to be honest, tonight’s headliners are the irrepressible Bleeding Knees Club with The Pinheadz & Voiid supporting…this was not the first I’d heard of the ostentatious girl group.  In fact I was looking forward to seeing some girlshreik, it had been a while since I’d heard an all girl punk band that impressed me to be honest.

The girls were all so comfortable in their skin on stage, an electric presence that flaunted true punk ego. They sauntered onto stage, and with an almighty bass line they launched straight into it as did the crowd. Voiid certainly have built a local following and everyone was writhing & cascading all over the joint with enthusiasm. Obvious influences came shining through, I decided I needed to have a little chat with the girls to spread the word on the hot asfuck sounds hitting my earholes…
So you got together…

Journey through Desire Path.

Talking with Yeo, I felt like I was chatting to a friend, he is humble and honest. We spoke about the themes intertwined in 'Desire Path' and how each collaboration came about.
Your last album was really playful both in the music and the lyrics.  Listening to your new album ‘Desire Path’, I felt like a it’s journey through different relationships. 
Yeah, I think even if the lyrics get really literal, music to me is based on emotion and emotions are kind of nothing without a relationship to give it context I feel.
Well when you think about, it relationships rule our lives, whether it be a friendship, family or a work colleague they are always an influence; but I feel quite a few of these tracks are about love relationships?
There’s a few on this album, and I haven’t done this for a while. The last album had a couple, but I feel like I got more honest on this one. 
I agree, you have a great way with words and that draws me in to your music. I take an expression of human emotions and …
