Texas-based country music singer/songwriter Granger Smith is in Australia with a headline appearance at the Groundwater Festival on the Gold Coast, along with sideshows in Sydney, Melbourne and Townsville. Granger kicked off the mini-tour at the Rooty Hill RSL in the heart of Western Sydney.
We sat down with Granger in Sydney shortly before he hit the stage and got to talk about his career to date.
Granger has been writing, recording and performing for nearly 25 years, with much of that being self-financed and produced, before landing a publishing deal in 2000 and moving to Nashville for a few years to learn more about song-writing and recording gear, after which he went home to Texas to finish his college degree and start a band.

With a reputation for delivering blistering live performances and their latest EP ‘Holy Sick’ in tow, WAAX will be hitting the stage at the 2016 ‘The Blurst Of Times” Festival. We caught up with WAAX drummer Tom Bloomfield for a chat.
First of all, congratulations on the release of your 2015 EP ‘Holy Sick’.
‘Holy Sick’ has been extremely well received. Do you enjoy the writing/recording process or prefer touring and playing live shows?
On Monday I sat down to speak with one of my favourite musicians of all time, and I’m not too proud to admit, I was extremely nervous. While she may refer to herself as “…just a chainsaw carver from the San Fernando Valley…”, the rest of the world know Cherie Currie as the fifteen-year-old singer who revolutionised the music industry and redefined women’s role in rock. As the front woman of the world’s first ever all girl rock band, playing alongside Joan Jett to make music history, Currie’s life sounds like something Hollywood would dream up; and the rock and roll powerhouse isn’t finished redefining music yet.
