Australian DJ/singer GG Magree has never been one to contain her excitement.
No, instead she harnesses it to fuel her energetic, wild performances when she heads on tour. She has been requested to work alongside several prominent musicians like Zeds Dead, Ghastly and Yellowclaw, among others. She has been on tour for much of the summer, and on Aug. 24, she will take her talents to Columbus for the Breakaway Music Festival.
The Lantern was able to ask GG Magree several questions in an exchange over email about her career to this point and what she sees ahead in her future.
This is the first of the Breakaway Artist interview series where The Lantern will speak with artists performing at the Breakaway Festival from Friday, Aug. 24 through Sunday, Aug. 26.
Q: When did you start singing/getting into music/producing etc.
GG: I really got into Djing when I was in university, I threw raves and then I was like mm now I want to do the music. So I thought myself how to Dj and completely became obsessed with it. I actually kinda fell into singing. A homie of mine who goes by “Nghtmre” asked me if I could sing and I lied and said YES, I then went away and 2 weeks later wrote our song we have together called “Frontlines”.
