What is your stage name?
Our name is Mister Co.

We came up with the name on our honeymoon in Tasmania. We narrowed it down from 20 other names, and decided to go with it because it sounded like a possible cafe name in our home town Melbourne.
Where do you find inspiration?
We draw inspiration from our lives and the experiences we have been through, we think of our music as the soundtrack of our life.
What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
We were both surrounded by all kinds of music throughout our early years and both were on stage from a young age.
And music is how we both actually met, when we were a part of our school production in high school.
Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?
One of our inspirations would have to be Berry Gordy. Connor loved researching his career and learning the business behind the music industry. Which is why we have a massive canvas of Hitsville USA up in our home.
How did you learn to sing/write/to play?
We were both getting lessons at a young age all the way through our schooling, and have continued learning, developing and performing to today.

Connor – Chris Brown & Rihanna world tour 2012
Oscar – Gorillaz world tour 2010
How could you describe your music?
Our genre meets in the middle of both our sounds, Connor being heavily influenced by rock, pop and soul and Oscar being influenced by soul. bigband and jazz, we seem to meet in the middle of all that.
Describe your creative process.
We both find and create a vibe together, then Oscar takes the vibe and starts constructing an arrangement. While Connor is working on hooks, melody and lyrics, after we write something solid we come together and fuse it.
What is your main inspiration?
To get our music heard and share an experience of us with the world.
What musician do you admire most and why?
We both are obsessed with Allen Stone, he is a genuine freak of nature. We saw him only a couple of weeks back and the energy he and his band leave on that stage is absolutely insane.
Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?
100% on every step of our journey we feel it changes and evolves into something new. By far the best thing about being an artist.
Who do you see as your main competitor?
Honestly we have never looked at that way, being a husband duo we compete with each other more than anyone.
What are your interests outside of music?
We actually run a property investment firm in Melbourne, Victoria called Pinnacle Choice.
If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?
An entrepreneur is something creative with a splash of business.
What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
Staying motivated and continuing to push yourself to become better at what your doing.
If you could change one thing in the music industry, what would it be?
That social media had a little less control over success in the industry.
Why did you choose this as the title of this project?
We were meditating under a full moon after we started the song and thought the night was beautiful so we said lets call it tonight.

We are planning to release another single in February/March next year that’s a little more upbeat and fun.
