Interview with Mojo Juju

Set to perform as part of the The Age Music Victoria Awards in just under a month, I caught up with Mojo Juju about who she might be voting for and being back on the road!

You released an amazing track Think Twice back in August and toured across the east coast, how were those shows and being back on the road?

The East Coast tour was great. It’s been awhile since I’ve been on the road, so it was nice to get back out there and play again. Things have changed a lot though, so it was fun but a little nerve-wracking to test out some new material and a new approach to the live show.

I saw you recently headed over to Perth! How often do you get over there? I know it’s hard one to route in for a lot of artist.

It’s been even longer since I’ve been to W.A. (Sorry about that). I’m struggling to remember when exactly. The last show I remember playing was for Perth International Arts Festival. We did a show with Nick Waterhouse at Chevron Festival Gardens… so it’s been a couple of years. I love it though. Anytime anyone in W.A. wants to invite us over, we’ll come!

You’re performing with the EG AllStars at The Age Music Awards after party, can you tell us a bit about that performance? Aannnnddd possible to get any sneaky info on who you’ll be voting for in the awards?

Yeah, I’m looking forward to this show. I’ll be performing my latest single ‘Think Twice’. There’s a lot of great artists performing. I’m looking forward to it.

As for voting… It’s some pretty stiff competition, some hard decisions to make. But I will say I’m a big fan of Remi and A.B. Original. I’m hoping to see those guys take something home.

You’re set to drop your album early next year, how is it coming along? Is there a solid release date yet?

Again, I’m gonna keep a lid on this, but it’s definitely coming, so stay tuned!

We always like to ask bigger musos what local acts they’ve been vibing on, who are you loving right now?

So much amazing talent in this country right now. Sampa The Great, Ecca Vandal, Kaiit… lots of women doing great stuff. In fact, my BFF, Kira Puru is about to drop a single any second now. Keep an ear out for it…
