Who are you and where are you from?
Ziggy Alberts from the east coast of Australia.
What inspired you to get into music?
My parents bought me a left-handed guitar when I finished school. I had no plans to be a musician, but was already pursuing writing heavily – so it just came together really naturally .
What have you done?
Two albums, two EPs… so tours, hundreds of shows… and looking forward to my third album ‘Laps Around the Sun’ coming out 9th November this year
What are you like live?
One of my highlights of the year was playing Byron Bay Bluesfest in April. It was the biggest show I’d ever played…The bigger shows have been an interesting transition, but, what’s more important is the consistency of shows. Playing shows – especially big ones – is a lot more fun when you are in the rhythm for it.
What makes you different?
Home-schooled. Independent. Fun. Enjoys sleep, long walks on the beach. But only when there aren’t waves. Then Ziggy Alberts enjoys surfing. He is a little weird and left-handed.
Physical vs Downloading vs Streaming…How do you listen to music?
I’m streaming a lot now, but I love hard copy CDs and vinyls whenever I can find them !
What have you been listening to?
I’ve got a playlist called ‘my friends’ on my Spotify and I love jamming out to the incredible community of musicians I’ve connected with – go check it!
What are your aspirations for the future?
Being healthy and leaving a positive impact on the beautiful planet we live on – enjoying the ride along the way.
Catch Ziggy Alberts at his London Scala show on September 27th…
