The wave of new talent emerging from the Gold Coast will be celebrated in the latest SEED Volume 4 album, launching at Miami Marketta on Wednesday 2 September.
Featuring the cream of the crop from Queensland Conservatorium’s Bachelor of Popular Music program, the night will showcase ambient rock artist Aquila Young, indie folk band Fox and Fiasco, electronic diva Phoebe and blues folk master Fletch.
The event will also feature the exclusive premiere of SEED Stories, a series of artist documentaries presented through a partnership between More Gold Coast, the Queensland Conservatorium and some of South East Queensland’s best filmmakers; and a sneak peak of the Espial exhibit by the Queensland College of Art.
As always, this year’s SEED album is diverse, presenting a wide range of artists and genres including dirty jazz, psychedelic rock, indie folk and floating electronica.
Seed is an innovative initiative led by Queensland Conservatorium and Griffith Enterprise, to give emerging contemporary artists a head start.
Each year the Bachelor of Popular Music students’ best songs are compiled into an album and distributed through major online stores.
Featured artists then receive genuine career building and learning experiences, industry connections and numerous high-profile performance opportunities including a ten-week concert series at QPAC and festivals such as the Bleach* Festival, Blues on Broadbeach, Broadbeach Country Music Festival and many more.
The BPM is the same program responsible for launching the careers of musicians such as The Kite String Tangle, The Delta Riggs, Bobby Alu and The John Steele Singers.
7.00pm, Wednesday 2 September.
Miami Marketta, 23 Hillcrest Parade, Miami Gold Coast.
