Happy New Year!
2019 is already shaping up to be a good one, with plans starting to gain some traction and having already played three gigs in the first week of the year.
My schedule is beginning to fill itself up quickly and my excitement is only growing.
Stay tuned for new music soon!
I've got a good feeling about this one.
Triple J Comp Winner
This year I decided to take advantage of being in high school for once and entered Unearthed High. 'Empty' reached the top 100 on Unearthed within its first week and remained for 2. Though never gaining airplay, the decision to upload this track was undeniably the best I've made as it scored me the chance to step up as a support act for Aussie Indie legends The Rubens on the Cairns leg of their Lo La Ru Tour and I couldn't be keener! (Tickets found on the Rubens website)
This year I was lucky enough to have a local Townsville radio station Triple M pick up my song '7 Wonders' and request a live on-air performance. Similarly, The Hills Radio station in Adelaide who requested to play the track earlier in the year. Brisbane Radio Station Triple Z and Cairns radio station FNQ Originals 89.1FM also surprised me by airing my Triple J Unearthed track 'Empty'. With new music on the way, my aim to air on Unearthed remains, but I'm thankful for the support of these community stations xx
More to Come
Over this year I've had the chance to headline a show for the first time, start playing more professional gigs and have the honour of being a support act to different local artists and friends such as The Broadcast Fiasco and Late November. More recently I've booked gigs at The Ville Resort/Casino and new local restaurant The Shorehouse. I'm excited to launch into 2019 head first and full time having just graduated high school!
Small Stage Headline
The month of May saw a small milestone, with my first headline gig. Taking place at Small Stage Townsville, hosted by Neighbourhood Sessions, it was a great experience and opportunity for me to show myself in a way that I had total control over.
Where it all began
I grew up in a musical family. I started tapping at a piano from about age 2 and I fell in love with it. Self-taught, I took on more challenges and started to pick up a guitar around age 11. I never looked back and decided this was something I might be able to do for the rest of my life, which is what I intend to do.
