Q&A with Your Shot Winner: CHIVERS

Q&A with Your Shot Winner: CHIVERS

Hot off the back of her Your Shot Sydney win, CHIVERS is the next big thing to hit Australian music. Your Shot presented by Alcatel is the same DJ comp that taught the likes of Tigerlily the tricks of the trade, with contestants having little to no DJ experience at all, then going on to train with some of the industry’s best such as Zannon, Clueless, 15grams and Robustt at The Academy for 6 weeks. Contestants then perform an epic set at the Your Shot event days to battle it out for the title.

Having won the Sydney edition of Your Shot, CHIVERS will now get flown to play her set at one of six epic prize destinations, either Creamfields (UK), Hideout Festival (Croatia), Snowbombing (Austria), ZoukOut (Singapore), The BPM Festival (Portugal), or CRSSD festival (US). If you want YOUR SHOT in 2019, you can pre-register.

How did you get your start in the industry?

I got my start in the industry from applying to Your Shot! It was an incredible experience which I was lucky enough to be a part of. I was so shocked that I won but it was such an amazing weekend! If you wanna check out my winning set, this is it.

Best part of what you do?

The best thing about what I do is getting to choose the music being played and seeing everyone enjoying it!

And the worst part?

Haven’t found a worst part about Dj-ing yet!

Any interesting experiences you can share?

I’ve been asked to do a guest mix I’m pretty excited about, so that will be cool to be a part of!

Favourite album of all time?

Billie Eilish – Dont Smile at Me.

Best live performance that you’ve ever seen?

Paramore back in 2010 was wild.

Favourite venues to hang out in?

Chinese Laundry and World Bar.

Take us through a typical day in the life of CHIVERS.

Well I work at Lovisa as an assistant manager during the day. But at nights, I’m working on all my sets for upcoming gigs.

What advice would you give to someone looking at getting involved in the music industry?

Just give it a go! If you’re not sure how to get into it 100%, register for Your Shot. It was such a good starting spot for myself to get into the industry!

Any news or final comments?

I’ve got some upcoming gigs which I keep everyone posted on via Insta and Facebook! Also if you’re keen to give Your Shot a go, pre-registrations are already open on their site. You won’t regret it!
