Alright... It is Radio Ralph with Explodeded.com. I am delighted to be joined by Australian singer, songwriter, dancer and all around great person Kelli Brogan. Welcome Kelli.
Q. I understand you have opened for Olivia Newton John. I assume you got to meet her, what was she like?
A. Yeah I did get to meet her. She was extremely friendly and very supportive. She was very down to earth. I think there is an old photo of the two of us together on my website.
(Ralph) That's amazing.
Q. Throughout your journey as a singer and performer, have you mainly performed in Australia or have you gotten to travel different countries and places?
A. As a singer I have only performed in Australia, unless you count Karaoke in a Pub in Blackpool in the UK. I have danced in other countries, but never had the opportunity to sing/perform anywhere else at this stage.
(Ralph) I've gotten to listen to some songs from the new album and they sounded great.
(Kelli) Thanks Ralph. I am very proud of the songs and how they have turned out.
Q. Absolutely. I enjoyed them and there seemed to be a good variety in the style of songs. Was that something you focused on when working on the album?
A. When I started working on the album I spoke to the producer and fellow songwriters and said that I wish I had already released an album because the greatest hits albums are the ones I love the best. So we decided we would try for a wide variety of songs, with different influences to try to create an album that sounded a bit like a greatest hits album. One that caters for a range or age groups, genres and influences. I think we have done a pretty good job.
(Ralph) I would have to agree. I think all ages can get on board and support the range in styles of music on this album.
Q. What are you most proud of from the album?
A. I think I am most proud of the fact that I was able to contribute to the writing of a couple of the songs and I am proud of the fact that the songs chosen for the album all have a story that I can connect with and that I believe others could easily connect with also. This is important to me as I think music is universal and it connects with everyone of us. If my music can connect people through stories, memories or experiences then I have achieved my goal as an artist.
Q. What is something from the album that you hope fans will notice when they hear it?
A. I would really love fans to get a feel for my personality. I am a diverse individual, I have so many things that I love and love to do. I also have a diverse range of music that I love to listen to and sing. So I really hope that fans realize that I am not the type of artist that can only sing one style of music or one type of song (fast or slow). I can and love to sing all different styles of music and different tempos. I also really hope that they realize how much I love singing and performing.
(Ralph) OK, now Kelli, I want to give you the opportunity to promote yourself. Your Website, social media, where the album is available and anything else you want your fans to know about.
