Jessica Mauboy Heads For USA : Exclusive Music News
Just had a quick chat with Australian Idol favourite Jessica Mauboy, who is currently in town spruiking the new Aussie musical Bran Nue Dae, in which she revealed that she may be on her way to cracking the lucrative American market.
“I’ve got a new album coming up which I’m going to LA to write and record… the only reason why I’ve chosen to go to LA and New York is just because I wanted to step up a little bit, just to see where [musically] I can go” says Mauboy. “We’re going to meet some up and coming producers who are around my age [20 - 21] and they are really hitting it hard in LA… I think it’s their sound which is really catching me at the moment” she continued.
As for teaming up for a duet with her Bran Nue Dae co-star Dan Sultan “I would love to work with Dan, and even write something… I’d love it”. Sultan, in his unique laid back way, simply replied “Let’s give it a crack”. Sounds like a plan to me.
