We were digging his new single ‘I Will Not Let You Down’ so much, we decided we just had to Get To Know Isaac Cavallaro a little more.
The Brisbane native has teamed up with fellow Brisbanite Zefereli for this altogether alluring piece of atmospheric, glittery dance/electronic pop.
So join us as we Get To Know Isaac Cavallaro.
01. Name : Isaac Cavallaro.
02. Where are you based? Bases loosely around Dr Seuss’s ‘Oh The Places You Will Go’.
03. How did you get your start in music? No one can tell you how to play music… so a desire for control and denomination?
04. Give us five words to best describe you as an artist. Integrity, independence, improvisation, DIY, patience.
05. Tell us a little bit about your sound and how it developed. That’s for the listener to decide. As for how it was developed… it’s a case of capturing bliss, trauma, nostalgia and then translating that as best as I can.
06. Who have been your musical influences? Nothing stirs a cheeky melody like a bowl of granola with some fresh berries.
07. What are your favourite songs of all time? That’s a rather overwhelming question to be honest. Since music is fundamentally a creative pursuit, and creatively stems from being playful and open to all possibilities… it seems dubious to limit oneself to a list of five songs stemmed from a place of competitiveness. Regardless, Deerhoof are a great band with solid tunes and philosophies.
08. What was the first album you bought? ‘Ninja Turtles’ (the soundtrack).
09. Give us a little fun fact about yourself that people might not know. I just twisted my ankle trying to jump over a bin in The Bahamas.
10. What would your chosen career be if music wasn’t an option? A bin jumper, definitely.
11. What’s the best advice you’ve been given in your career? “Music begins where words end”. It’s not advice but when I heard that last night, I knew bin jumping wasn’t for me.
12. Tell us about your latest release. It’s a fairly user friendly composition with a collection of diatonic notes playfully dancing with a house groove. It’s not the melody or the lyrics that matter, it’s how the song makes you feel. I have my intentions, but your take is just as valid, if not more important.
13. What do your future plans involve? Change is good and thankfully it’s reliably constant. I guess then a new single that uses no tonal centre, aggressively attacking an experimental groove-less drum sequence.
14. Where can our audience catch you live? My location changes daily as I’m currently playing drums on a cruise ship in The Caribbean. Google “Adventure Of The Seas” and get yourself a ticket.
