The Red Deer Festival is just around the corner and with such an epic line up we grabbed some of the artists to have a bit of a chat about all things music, and why you must see them at Red Deer. Consider it an inside look at what to expect from this fantastic festival and what you want to highlight.
We caught up with MC Wheels, an inspirational musician and one not to miss. See why he deserves your attention.
In what ways do you hope to inspire others with your music?
I want to show people that no matter what challenges you face in life. You can always overcome it with hard work and determination. And would like to inspire people to chase after their dreams.
What challenges have you faced in the Australian hip-hop scene?
Finding that very it’s a very hard genre to really make a name for yourself. I also feel that maybe me being in a wheelchair holds me back a little bit. Feels like maybe some people don’t know what to expect from a wheelchair bound rapper.
Which classic/iconic song do you wish you had written?
Eminem ‘ Lose Yourself’ is just real hard hitting song about the realities of chasing after your dream. You really do only have one shot you have to take it as best you can. It’s a real anthem wish that I was able to craft that magic.
Who is your musical hero?
Bliss N Eso are my favourite musical artist’s. Found them when I was struggling to find my voice. And they really helped pave a path with the sound I wanted to take.
So, we haven’t heard from you for a while. What projects have you been working on?
This year I release my second album called Darkside of Happiness. Did the album launch at the milk factory in Brisbane. I also played at the first event of the Moffat beach originals. Hoping to have a good end to 2017 with a couple more gigs.
