Tell us your history.
SIORE is an Indie pop duo from Melbourne that formed with Jessica (vocals) and Paul (guitar and keyboard).
 
We initially joined together to play music and within a few months had over a dozen original songs and performed them at any opportunity we could at various venues and open mic nights around Melbourne.  
 
We are both deeply interested and passionate about music, which has always been the core driver and foundation of everything we do. 
 
Paul’s first experiences of music was at age seven when his sister would teach him songs that she had been learning in her guitar lessons. 
 
Jessica sang in choirs from the age of five, and had a passion for writing lyrics and songs from an early age. She has early memories of her father playing blues on the stereo when her mother was out so loud the windows would shake and they would dance on the furniture. 
 
A lifelong love of playing and listening to music developed for both.

Tell us the problems you are facing as a musician
The music industry has changed dramatically, that presents challenges and opportunities. 
 
The online world of social media and reaching audiences presents new opportunities, but there’s also huge competition and people are bombarded with information. 
 
It’s about creating engaging content that appeals to audiences and cuts through the white noise. 
 
In order to do that you need to be constantly creating, sharing and coming up with new ways to reach your fans.

Discuss the recording and production of the song.
We were lucky to work with veteran ARIA nominated producer Stuart Stuart, who’s worked with Sheppard and the Veronicas first album who’ve reached international success. 
 
His input was invaluable and for two weeks we recorded in his studio in Brisbane and really immersed ourselves in the songs and creation of the EP. 
 
It was an incredible amount of work, rewriting and sometimes frustrating but we’re so pleased with how it sounds and can’t wait to share it.

Elaborate on your music career, experience and future goals.
We want to continue to create and write the best possible songs we can and secondly to bring those songs to as many people as possible. 
 
We want to inspire and motivate people, even if we touch the lives of one person and there is something in our music they can relate that is the greatest reward.

Brief us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.
Songs tend to reflect the mood or the situation one is in when they are written. 
 
For us it’s about sharing what’s inside our heads with the world, it’s often the biggest healer; it’s raw and often emotional. 
.

Brief us the top-secret behind making a hit song.
Great songs tend to come out when something significant has occurred, it can be a tough moment, where you may feel sad or upset or just the same it may be something marvelous has happened and you want to tell the world how happy you are, in those instances the melodies and lyrics seem to flow out almost as if by themselves.

Tell the advice you will give to an upcoming artist.
Keep going, keep creating and never give up on your dreams. If you feel like your motivation is low continue. Even one thing you do that day will keep you forward, surround yourself with other musicians and people in the industry who can lift you up and support you to greater heights.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.
We generally start with a verse or a chorus melody or work on some guitar chords, then add bit by bit, adding a pre-chorus. Sometimes it happens in unexpected places, in the car, in an aeroplane, walking in the rain.
