Interview with Koi Child

Get the low-down on this hard-to-categorise, but amazing fresh Fremantle jazz-hip hop band – fronted by Shannon Cruz Patterson – who have had a crazy, crazy couple years. In this interview, the guys, with an average age of around 25, expose their musical backgrounds, and their hopes and aspirations, and why they love the music they love. After the incredible Kevin Parker of Tame Impala fame spotted them and then produced their first album, Koi Child, to great acclaim in 2016, the guys have been working on their second album.

Hear how they got to be what they are and where they want to be going. Sam Newman starts the interview ball rolling at 00:00. Christian Ruggiero takes over the beat at 14:43. Yann Vissac at 30:56. Shannon Cruz Patterson comes on stage at 43:55. Blake Hart drums in at 1:02:18. And finally Jamie Canny finishes it off at 1:15:45. Do enjoy it!
