Hang 5 with The Hour of Love’s, Gina Martin

Who’s your favourite GC artist/band?

There are so many amazing Gold Coast musicians, it’s really tough to choose just one! I’d have to say it’s tied between three amazing bands: Street 66, White Lodge and Salvadarlings.

 

What do you think is the best thing about living on the GC?

For a long time I really didn’t appreciate the Gold Coast, but now I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. The culture that bubbles here just below the surface is mind-blowing and the creative people I have met and love are really what makes this place home.

 

The most under-rated musician right now?

Hmm… This is tough because it’s easy to confuse little known with under-rated. Astro Travellers out of Brisbane are definitely under-rated. They are so damn talented!

 

What brought you to Rabbit Radio?

Lovestreet Studios brought me to Rabbit Radio. I was studying at the time, trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life when the idea of radio started calling. Rabbit Radio were just starting up and Lovestreet were lucky enough to secure a weekly show. I stepped in and haven’t looked back since. The team behind Rabbit Radio and the amazing presenters do such an incredible job. We all bring something unique to the table and I’m very lucky to be apart of that team.

 

If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?

Life is too short to drink bad wine. Also, pay for your music. For musicians to create the music that you love, it costs money, and I think some people don’t realise just how much. It’s really important to support independent artists and bands by paying a cover charge at a venue and, more importantly, for venues to pay bands. Buy a CD or a T-shirt because that money is going to pay for that bands next album.
