The Soundcheck is Tiana Speter:

A music livin’, review givin’ girl from the Gold Coast with an ear for talent & a nose for new tunes.


While generally leaning to the heavier realms, Tiana is an eclectic musical sponge with tastes ranging from Meshuggah to Mozart, Ray Charles to Run The Jewels – plus everything in-between. Tiana brings extensive experience in TV, music and professional writing into each of her projects, including as a host for various podcasts and online video series and as a writing gun-for-hire for a range of PR companies, bands and labels. Can she talk and write underwater? Yes, and she'll do it while drooling over riffs and making accidental puns.

Tiana’s personal career highlights (so far) include: chatting with Tom Morello about the legacy of the electric guitar, challenging Herman Li (DragonForce) to a Guitar Hero battle, finding a link between a love letter and House of the Rising Sun with John Steel (The Animals), coining the phrase "inspiration lasagne" with Jimmy Barnes, evaluating broken wrists with Simon Delaney (Don Broco),  inviting Matt Caughthran (The Bronx) to play in her living room, accidentally hanging up on Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), unpacking the importance of safety and inclusion at gigs while drinking vodka over Zoom with Frank Carter, learning about stranger danger with Jay Whalley (Frenzal Rhomb), accidentally breaking glass during a chat with Dave Bayley (Glass Animals), relishing in the joys of black clothing with Lzzy Hale (Halestorm), establishing the empirical importance of the Nintendo Switch with Sam Vallen (Caligula's Horse), realising a mutual love of childhood radio shows and The Little Mermaid songs with Emily Hampshire (Shitt's Creek), offering to make cut-off jeans for Corey Glover (Living Colour), getting a Zoom tour of Hans Zimmer's London apartment by the man himself, getting a personal showing of Aunty Donna's hallowed sketch Post-it wall and finding out why Lajon Witherspoon (Sevendust) once lost his mind when his dentist drove past.

If you're looking to discover new music, tell your story, learn new stories or just fall back in love with the music world all over again with no gate-keeping, no bullshit, and not just copying and pasting press releases: this is the place. Come check some sound.
