‘But I wanted to create shows that reflected the tone of what we were going through rather than act like it was business as usual.

‘I asked Elton to come on my show, to pick some records, we’d do a mutual playlist and chat about music.’ 

The New Zealand-born presenter also revealed: ‘There is a sense of openness and a willingness to connect within the artistic community that I don’t think I’ve ever experienced before.’

Zane he is renowned for interviewing the likes of Kanye West, Lorde, Adele, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga and Amy Shark, but even since his humble beginnings his creative endeavours demonstrated an understanding of music which run deeper than most.

For as long as the  presenter can remember, he was naturally pulled toward the melody and rhythm of music.

‘For me it just stuck. I would just go down to my parent’s record collection when I was super young and just rifle through the vinyl and just ask them ”put this one on” or ”put this one on”,’ Lowe told Daily Mail Australia.

‘I just remember that it was something I just got lost in… That’s when I realised, ”okay, this is more than just entertainment” – this is really a form – for some people, a deep form, of expression and for other people, its survival.’

Zane would appreciate key moments where music could resonate with his family and friends, before analysing how it emotionally resonated with him.

‘It allowed me to feel things I didn’t know – that I wasn’t sure I could I feel without music.

‘It’s just kind of always been something that I’ve moved with in my life and I’ve always felt that this was my primary passion,’ he said.
