Each week, Andie is joined in the Waffle Music studio by one artist or band for an intimate chat – covering topics like the creative process, the benefits of social media, on-tour shenanigans and more.
The podcast provides a fantastic opportunity for musicians to step out from behind the microphone and connect with their fans (and new ones!) by sharing their own stories.
Being a platform for music discovery, guests are also invited to play an in-studio, two-song acoustic session as part of the interview.
Andie says, “my aim for Waffle Music is to showcase all types of music, especially Aussie stuff, and expose music lovers to new bands and artists. It also totally taps in to my own personal love of music. The Waffle Music podcast format means that I can chat to musicians in a long form way, so we can discuss more than what is sometimes possible in a brief ‘promo chat.’ This has lead to some fascinating and hilarious stories. I can’t wait to share them with everyone!”
Episodes 1-6 feature pop band Vaudeville Smash, Gustaf from Melbourne/US based rockers goodbyemotel, indie guys Pretty City, Melbourne’s Buchan, Brisbane’s Hey Geronimo and MC Momo from hip hop duo Diafrix. Upcoming guests include Hamish Anderson and Animal Hands…to name a few! Look up Waffle Music on iTunes to listen, or stream the shows at wafflenetwork.com.
Professional artists and bands with original music interested in appearing on Waffle Music can submit their details at wafflenetwork.com. Interviews are recorded in person in Melbourne, so artists will need to be local or touring at the time.
