Bronny AC - Blues / Roots, Australia (ArenaCast E87)

About: Bronny AC is a Blues and Roots artist hailing from Melbourne, Australia.

"Bronny AC combines gutsy vocals with slick guitar skills to produce an impressive sound. 
Being a huge Tommy Emmanuel fan, Bronny was blown away to receive an encouraging phone call from him after he heard her demo. This inspired her to refine her guitar skills and a year later she was awarded the ‘Australian Young Guitarist of the Year.’ 
Bronny has performed with many accomplished musicians over the years and has just recorded a brand new EP ‘Oh me Oh mi,’ which showcases extraordinary musicianship and songwriting ability."

1). How does autumn influence your music?
Autumn brings with it a certain calmness. The weathers still quite cold and it's a great time to spend indoors with a guitar in hand writing music.

2). What book or movie has influenced your creative work the most?
This is Spinal Tap.. Joking.. There are many books and movies that have influenced my music. There's nothing like feeling inspired after watching an uplifting movie or reading a book and putting that energy into a song. I particularly enjoy reading autobiographies of my heros, Eric Clapton's was the last one I read and it reminded me of why I love music so much.

3). Do you perform cover songs at your shows? If yes, what songs?
Yes, I usually sneak a few covers into my shows. Some favourites are:
May You Never - by the late great John Martyn
Tuckers Daughter - Ian Moss
Harley and Rose - The Black Sorrows
Cryin Shame - Diesel

4). Were you good in school? Do you miss your school years?
Well, I definately enjoyed getting up to mischief at school due to a combination of boredom and rebelliousness. I'm sure there were a few teachers that were glad to see the back of me. Yeah I do miss it. I don't think I ever appreciated just how good I had it when I was at school. I mean you're there 9 till 3, with an hour for lunch and you spend everyday with your friends. Pretty damn good really.

5). Would you like to be a superhero? What superpowers would you like to have and why?
Oh definately. I think the ability to fly would be pretty amazing. Flying would be the ultimate feeling of freedom. Being able to shoot up into the sky and soar to exotic destinations. No need for cars and no need to endure horrendous public transport.
