Featuring Ruari O’Driscoll
The fourth instalment of Exude Spotlight Artists features Ruari O’Driscoll, a multi-instrumentalist who’s best known as the drummer in Redferrie. In this episode we speak about Ruari’s musical pursuits, the state of gigs during Victoria’s lockdowns, and a bit about Great Southern Nights, New South Wales’ COVID-safe music festival being held late this year. We delve a little into what music might be like post-COVID and how heavily influenced a lot of music is from their times or the artists’ genuine interactions or emotions. We also comment on some government funding to the music industry — before getting a tad political about it. Oden’s back, too!
