For my new monthly interview for Tradiio, I've chosen to introduce you to the Australian pop/rock band The Encounters. They have released their debut EP "Things That Aren't Real" in March and their single "Sweet Side Effect" attracts more and more listeners every week on Tradiio.
TID - Could you tell us few words about The Encounters ? How did you come together ?
Forming in Perth, Western Australia, late 2014, brothers Callum Robertson (Lead Guitar) and William Robertson (Bass) joined with long-time friend Lewin Riddell (Lead Vocals and Rhythm Guitar) to begin a new musical project. Releasing their Debut EP ‘Things That Aren’t Real’ in March 2015 saw the band growing a steady fan base and wanting to begin gigging around the local scene. While studying music at uni Will met drummer Oly Gordon and organised to jam with the band.
After his debut album "We Are Fools", the australien singer-songwriter Riley Pearce is back with a new single called "Roskie".
This song is relaxing, as Riley Pearce knows really well to do. It's like an invitation to travel. The melody of "Roskie" make me think about a road trip.
Jessica Morhall is a talented Perth-based singer/songwriter whose musical journey continues to evolve and grow. She began learning the piano at 8 and at just 12, started writing her own songs.

Having just released his debut EP We Are Fools in June, It hasn’t taken long for Riley to receive praise for his hard work and musical talents. The 20yr old musician from Perth has seen two tracks off his EP receive multiple airings on Triple J national radio as well as being the featured artist on various local stations.
