Whether bowling over audiences in stage shows like Rocky Horror and Hedwig and The Angry Inch, on movie screens strapped to the front of an apocalyptic lorry with a flame- throwing guitar in Mad Max:Fury Road, or swinging between tender and bawdy out front of his own band, energetic Australian performer iOTA is always a revelation to behold. Off the back of his recent national tour for new album Wolf Number Nine and the stirring Sydney Opera House rock-musical B-Girl, the singer-songwriter has now set aside some time to sit down and chat. Five albums into a solo career that began with the 1999 ARIA nominated Hip Bone Connection, and two Helpmann Awards later (he pipped Hugh Jackman in 2007 to take out Best Male Actor in a Musical) there’s a lot to talk about.
From artistic motivations and song crafting secrets to his more recent development as a consummate visual artist, iOTA will be discussing it all with journalist Paris Pompor, answering your questions and singing us some songs.
