Eden Roberts: The Interview

New Zealand experienced a one of a kind television event in the form of The X Factor which debuted April 21, 2013 on TV3. Now you may have your opinion on Reality TV talent shows like this one and how they’re a detriment to said person that participates in them, but I still watched it regardless cause you never know who emerges from said contest. I took that lesson when we interviewed Owl Eyes (aka Brooke Addamo) who was on the sixth season of Australian Idol and look how she turned out.

Enter 19 year old singer/songwriter Eden Roberts, one of the finalists that was on The X Factor and probably my personal favorite out of the lot. She had a lot of Spunk, integrity and an uncompromising spirit. During her time on The X Factor she sung a Dolly Parton track and one of her own tracks that she penned much to the chagrin of the voting public that wanted a more pop sound than indie (even though they were spoiled for choice!).

Although Eden was the first to be eliminated, she was humbled with the experience and it got her some much needed exposure.

With that said, how did we managed to get an interview with Eden?

Well it was through a series of events that culminated in her  contacted us a while ago, we didn’t hear back from her and just recently we meter maid her music through the Hype Machine, got in contact with her yet again, met in the middle and here we are.

Recently she has been to America doing gigs here and there and keeping very busy since she decided to go into music full time. We commend her ventures into American as our audience is predominately from the USA.

Eden was happy to grant us this interview and here’s what she had to say!

POOL Announce Video of New Single ‘Lipstick’


Watch Here http://bit.ly/1no1nTr

Lead singer David says: “We wrote Lipstick in May 2012 when we just got a new vocal effect which also has autotune on it. We always wanted to use autotune in our tracks so we were really happy about this new toy. When we played Lipstick with autotune on, my vocals it just had this electric feel which has become an essential thing for the song. It was quite hard to write the lyrics for Lipstick. I always knew what they would be about but it took me quite some time to find the right words.”
