We sat down with the ever-so passionate Kyls Burtland as she shares with her thoughts on her latest nomination and the future of her musical career.

1. What is your inspiration for the nominated song? (Destination Flavour Scandinavia)

I was trying to capture the pristine beauty of the Norwegian ‘Fjords’ somehow in this theme.  I chose a wall of cellos and violins to suggest the grandeur of the mountains, and tinkly bells layered on top to suggest the sparkle of snow falling.

The theme also hopefully captures the elegance of our celebrity chef host, Adam Liaw, a Singaporean-Australian who won ‘Master Chef’ here in Australia, and is much loved by Australians for his gentleness and brilliant food.
