Six Questions, Six Minutes with Singer Songwriter Glenn Rosborough
1. What was your inspiration to become a musician?
My parents always had music playing in my house. That sounds like a generalisation but it was morning noon and night. My dad’s a big music collector and I suppose it was kind of our house’s religion in a way. It was always a huge part of life and to me it seemed like any other career to get into.
2. How did you start your musical journey?
I started playing when I was 10. A guitar always sat in our kitchen, and on the bookshelf was a book. On the front it said “play all these songs with these 3 chords”and I did, very badly
3. Where do you take creative inspiration from for your songs?
My life really. I write songs about things that have happened throughout my life, it’s helped me keep my head on straight. Even with broader, more political topics. Writing has always been like that for me. It’s how I try and make sense of it all for myself
4. What’s the wackiest gig you’ve had to date?
I played a festival once and a man dressed as a cow had a fight with someone dressed as a turtle because he inappropriately pulled one of his udders
5. Other than being a Singer Songwriter what job would be your dream job?
I would love to have been an astronaut. Space travel is amazing. I spend long nights outside star gazing and taking photos with my telescope. I’m a huge nerd in general. Plus a lot of astronauts start off as test pilots, sounds like pretty awesome to me.
6. You’ve played international concerts and festivals but what concert lineup would be your ultimate gig?
Jeff Buckley first on and St Vincent main support, and Bowie as headliner.
