SARAH JANE WENTZSKI:
I moved to Melbourne in 1999 from Apollo Bay
, which is a small country town on the south coast of Victoria. I really didn't fit in
there, so music was also a kind of a way that I felt
Isolation and displacement are really big things for me at the moment
. My mother passed away
just under six months ago and being able to create and to write about it was my way of dealing with
A lot of my music draws from experience that I've had
, just stuff that I see. It's my way of articulating myself and being able to express myself emotionally in a way that I feel comfortable, in a way that I feel will be understood. Song writing gives me this freedom of innuendo and hiding between the lines
and skirting around
the point but making my point perfectly well known.
When you get those moments when things just kind of click
and that's the fun time.
