Young Indigenous singer/songwriter Aodhan is only 16 years old, and is already making his mark on the music scene in Australia.

Winner of JJJ’s Unearthed High Indigenous Initiative in 2019, Aodhan draws inspiration from a range of writers, genres, and eras. Here we catch up with Aodhan for a chat about his career, life and advice for anyone else following their dreams.

What inspires your music / lyrics?

I would say mainly other artists’ music is one of my main sources of inspiration, as I’m sure it is for lots of other artists as well. Otherwise, I find myself taking ideas from lots of small things — like turning a light off for example.

Can you tell us a little about what it was like winning the JJJ Unearthed High Indigenous Initiative?

Winning that comp was massive for me, I was absolutely over the moon about it! I got to work with one of my all-time favourites, Josh Pyke, as a part of winning and we ended up creating my fifth release, “Drive”. Unearthed High has really opened doors for my career and I doubt things would’ve worked out the way they have if it wasn’t for that competition. Super, super grateful to have come this far!

Favourite musician, band, style of music?

It’s hard to narrow it down to just one all-time favourite, but at the moment I think my favourite band is Wallows. They’ve got that perfect blend of indie pop and rock that I can’t get enough of and their songs are insanely good.

Packing for a holiday, what is in your bag and where are you headed?

Basically all of my music gear for both recording and performing and it’s off to Byron Bay. Might need a bigger bag…

Do you have any advice for anyone else your age pursuing their dreams?

It’s honestly just what everyone else says after their success. Just try the best you possibly can and good things will eventually come your way. And the most important part of all is to just enjoy it. Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing, just create what you wanna hear and have fun!
