Interview with Dynamic Acoustic Duo, ‘All About Her’

‘All About Her’ are a young and up-and-coming local Adelaide band. The acoustic duo, consisting of Jess Vogel on lead vocals and Andrew Baldino on guitar, formed in November, 2010. Their set-lists feature their own spin on a broad mix of Top 40, alternative and older classics. As Andrew states, “The balance between Jess and I makes for a dynamic mix of songs and energy.”

I had the opportunity to catch up with Andrew Baldino and find out more about this exciting duo.

How did ‘All About Her’ form?

It was pretty random! We actually met one night as we both were filling in for another band’s gig. After a few quiet drinks later that night, Jess and I ended up having a bit of a jam session on my couch and we said to each other, “we should create a duo!” The rest was history!

Where did the name, ‘All About Her,’ originate?

After Jess and I decided to join forces, I asked some of my mates to help us out on a name. I told them that our duo was actually all about Jess so one of them said, “Why not All About Her as a name?” Pretty simple really! Plus Jess is a lot prettier than me so it’s only right that all the attention is on her!

For those who don’t know much about your music, describe what type of artist you are.

Well I guess we’re really striving for a fresh and modern sound, as we tend to play a lot of current hits. We actually played at the Oxford last week and there was a big crowd as it was the last stop for a university pub-crawl. They were really responsive to our set so we see younger audiences as our target at the moment. With that being said however, we also like to play some alternative stuff and we’re slowly building up our repertoire to become a really versatile act for all audiences.

Who are your major influences?

I can’t really pinpoint one or two major influences because we play so many genres. We play tracks from the Temper Trap to Beyonce and Whitney Houston so you could say we’re really quite eclectic.

What is next on the agenda for ‘All About Her’?

Our main aim as a duo is to become a force in the Adelaide acoustic scene and continue to play gigs at cool venues like the Earl of Aberdeen. Ultimately, I guess we want to be well respected in the industry.

‘All About Her’ are set to play at the Earl of Aberdeen (Coopers Alehouse) this Friday, the 20th of May from 7.30pm.
