Roots to Grooves – Angus & Julia Stone

Welcome to our weekly podcast “Roots to Grooves”.
Each episode explores the music, life and careers of musical artists from their earliest beginnings through to their most recent releases.

On this episode Jay and Jesse discuss the career and creative approaches of Australian folk and indie pop group, brother and sister duo “Angus & Julia Stone“.

Angus & Julia Stone” are a brother and sister indie folk duo originally from Sydney, Australia.

These siblings grew up with music in their veins, given the fact that their father, John Stone, was a fledgling musician throughout their childhood. In fact some of Julia’s earliest musical memories were that of hearing the bass vibrations coming from their household basement as she was falling asleep, and as her father would be rehearsing with one of his bands.

However it was her brother Angus who would first pick up the guitar and start writing his own songs, eventually revealing his creations to Julia and teaching her how to play the guitar.

In their formative years Angus and Julia would each write their own songs and perform them around various open mic nights in Sydney. Despite performing separately, they would each show up to the others shows, and support by providing backing vocals.

Eventually Angus and Julia realized it might be cool to join forces and write and record together. This led to their debut release, the EP “Chocolate and Cigarettes”, which attracted the attention of a publishing deal and eventually a record deal.
