After Dark Adventures

An Interview with Miles Bonny


A creator of sexy, soulful sounds against smooth beat melodies, Missouri’s Miles Bonny was recently in Australia for a rare tour, only appearing in Melbourne for one date, supporting Osunlade.

The Kansas City-based artist has been making some of the best smoothed out soul on the planet and Melbourne was lucky enough to get a taste of his music.

The 5 to 9 Life, on the other hand, was lucky enough to grab an interview with the musician.

An Interview with Blu


If you didn’t already know, LA duo Blu & Exile are heading our way to embark on a whirlwind Australian tour this week.

Contemporary west coast Rap star Blu is riding on the edge of superstardom, with countless releases of solo albums, mixtapes and instrumental compilations that still has him flying under the radar to many people.

Check out my interview with the one and only Johnson Barnes aka Blu.

An Interview with Ta-ku


This next edition of the ‘After Dark Adventures’ is a pretty special one.

2012 has been a pretty crazy year for The 5 to 9 Life. Not only did I get to do some travelling, but I also was introduced to some new Australian talent – musicians, beatmakers, artists, writers, athletes, and the list goes on.

As a writer, I have been lucky enough to interview some of these people that I’ve been introduced to, and so I was very excited to have recently been given the opportunity to interview the talented Ta-ku.

An Interview with Lauren Abedini

An Interview with Mell Hall

Talent in a creative field namely. Talented individuals that you should all get to know a little better.
