RIVAH represent! Yas, girl! Aussie pop artist & global jetsetter, Rivah, joins us this week on the Hot & Delicious Rocks The Planet! weekly entrepreneurship podcast.

I met this little lion and massive ray of sunshine 6 years ago at SXSW Music in Austin, Texas, and we’ve been friends ever since.

We soak up RIVAH’s travels since our last podcast together 4 years ago, exploring her journey from Brisbane to Auckland to Melbourne, New York City, Los Angeles and all the way back again.

Living all over Brooklyn, a place that now feels like her “first home”, RIVAH is all set to jet back to the USA in a matter of weeks once her O1 Alien of Extraordinary Ability visa is processed and she shares the joy and musical evolution of her self-titled debut EP, snapping up a record deal with Inertia Music, her pinch me moments, the importance of authenticity, openness and honesty, philosophy, ambition and so much more.

So much positive energy, RIVAH lights up the room wherever she goes and damn, you need to hear her sing! Let’s get into the show!

Interview #21 – Bec Laughton. 

Little bit pumped for today’s podcast as I’m catching up with one of the most lovely, energising and positive humans I know, Australian indie soul songstress, Bec Laughton.

Now I met Bec about 2 years ago at the world’s largest music conference at SXSW in Austin, Texas and first came across her live tunes when I was shooting photos and providing social media for a series of international music showcases called The Aussie BBQ for Sounds Australia at the conference. For those of you who are musicians with a burning desire for success, Sounds Australia are an Australian organization tasked by the Australian and Federal governments to export Australian music to global markets.

Anyway, when Bec hit the stage at the first official event I was attending and I heard her voice for the first time I was like… WOW! Who the fuck is that? This little pocket rocket’s got some pipes!!! Think old school funk, r&b, soul.. think Eryka Badu think Lauren Hill.. seriously check this shit out…

I kept bumping into Bec at showcases all over Austin and we became buddies on that tour, staying in touch and I was just chuffed to have her chillin’ like a villain on a beanbag at my castle in the sky recently, chatting about her life so far and the next steps in her exciting career.

In today’s podcast we chit chat about her time in New York working with Grammy Award-winning producer Michael League and Snarky Puppy, going off the grid for 6 months as part of massive global management deal that she’s recently signed (currently living in an undisclosed international location recording a brand new album with some of the music industry’s top peeps.. VERY exciting!), being a female drummer with the most amazing voice (my words not hers), writing music for yourself from the heart and the balance of living in the moment whilst maintaining the tireless tenacity for the future. 

And when you hear her this little lion open up her lungs and sing for the very first time you’ll be like.. what the fuck… where did that come from? Ah-mazing! And maaaaan, does she just have the most magical smile that lights up a room.

Seriously.. once you’ve had a listen to this podcast come check out her jams that I’ve loaded up onto the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet blog…

Pocket rocket alert! Pumped!

Off to see Bec Laughton tonight at The Toff In Town. I first met Bec back in Austin (TX) last year at South By South West when I was there shooting pics for the Sounds Australia and The Aussie BBQ. Bumped into Bec quite a number of times at SXSW and what I noticed about her that week is a magic little smile that sets the room alight wherever she goes, amazing stage presence, energy and damn.. can that girl sing!

After galavanting the globe yet again, Bec Laughton has dropped her latest bit of magic, the new M & R EP, simultaneously releasing the title track and video of the same name, complete with national Australian tour. Can’t wait to hear these jams live tonight!

So much soul and so fuckin’ sexy!
