APRA|AMCOS celebrated another great year with Christmas Drinks and nibbles at The Jade this year. It was fabulous to touch base with so many people from across the music industry. What a lovely community we have here in SA.
I finally made it to a Pat Pattison songwriting workshop in Melbourne first weekend in August. I have heard so much about this man’s skills, I am over the moon that I finally got to experience this first hand.
More songwriting in August when Lou Bradley and I met with Rod McCormack in his studios on the NSW central coast to begin work on a new recording. We were joined during the week by Gina Jeffries, Max Jackson and seven of their long term students. At the end of the week we had a swag of new songs and I shall be returning in November to start recording.
I had a wonderful July, spending time doing what I love the most, that is writing songs. I attended two face to face and two online workshops with the amazing Francesca de Valence from iheartsongwriting club. Great advice about building momentum, staying on track, getting through writer’s block and much more.
I also spent two days at Indie Con which was held right here in Adelaide. This Independent Music Conference, is designed especially for indie artists, labels, etc. For a bit of glamour I also attended the AIR Awards Ceremony in the beautiful Masonic Hall. Such exciting stuff happening in the music industry, it is hard to keep up.
