Story of her life

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - WHAT’S ON -

SNEZANA ‘‘Snez’’ Dal­ceska uses her lyrics as a means to send her mes­sage to the world. The Blue Moun­tains-based songstress be­lieves no mat­ter where you are in life, you should fol­low your bliss. That’s the mes­sage Snez wants to spread as far and wide as pos­si­ble. ‘‘If you have some kind of dream or as­pi­ra­tion, go for it,’’ she says. ‘‘It doesn’t mat­ter if there is suc­cess at the end of it. It’s about en­joy­ing the jour­ney.’’ Snez says while she got into the mu­sic in­dus­try ‘‘a lit­tle late in life’’, she is fi­nally liv­ing her dream. ‘‘It’s taken a long time but I’m here. The fact I am liv­ing it is a suc­cess in it­self,’’ she says. Snez re­leased her sec­ond al­bum 8 Lives Left to Lose late last year and says it fea­tures a mix­ture of in­tense bal­lads and softer love songs. ‘‘I don’t shy away from in­tense top­ics like lost love,’’ she says. ‘‘My songs are a per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence. I take a lot of time on lyrics and melodies.’’ Snez co-writes and plays live with gui­tarist Ste­wart Peters. She says the duo’s live show is very in­ti­mate and full of acous­tic-folk-pop melodies. ‘‘I like to play a lot of in-depth songs so it can be quite raw at times,’’ she says. ‘‘I want peo­ple to take a piece of me with them.While (the show) is in-depth, it can also be up tempo. It’s my mis­sion to con­nect with my au­di­ence.’’
