WA'S Finest Vol.1 Wrap Up Vol.2 & 3 Launch

WA’S Finest kicked off on Saturday Fep 9th with a fantastic workshop presented by Myles Mitchell. Myles brought a plethora of experience to the table in his discussion of performance technique. A great turnout of 11 locals representing different age…

Grand Casual Tour Update

Has been a super hectic fortnight for my good self, some absolutely golden ups and downs. But that’s life, constantly evolving quick to change. Like the late great Bill Hicks said “it’s just a ride”.

 

November on the…

Swamp Thing!!!!!

Over the past five years I’ve met and had the pleasure of working with some brilliant musicians both local and touring. When I think back upon my favourite live performances there is one act that stands firmly above the crowd…

Touring in regional WA

Touring really is an epic proposition for musicians. There are so many obstacles to getting out on the road. In a perfect world Comfort Inn, Ibis or one of these chain accommodation type setups would offer discounted rates for musicians…

Activating Spaces

It’s an interesting thing, activating venues and spaces that are not generally recognised as locations for Live Music. Castletown is home to one such venue. The Travellers INN Esperance has seen a lot of changes over the last 10…

Cleverest Name I've Heard in a While

Mt Cleverest hit the road for their first Southwest tour tying in Bunbury, Margaret River and our very own Esperance. 

Based out of Perth the lads recently released their first ep “Money” which is the true catalyst for…

The White Gretsch Hangover

I think all artists reach a point where they become disillusioned by their previous work. 

Old styles feel bland, lacking energy and just well and truly spent. 

My solo performance has been feeling a little like this of…

1 (uni) degree of separation

I studied Tourism Management with a minor in marketing at ECU. I scraped through with the bare minimum results as no doubt a lot of teens flung straight from Tee Exams into University have done. Wild weekends and bad choices…

Winter Musings

Do you ever feel the urge to just throw your phone, television, or computer directly at the wall? Imagine that initial emotion of relief as a device that systematically draws your productivity, motivation and social interaction splinters into a sprawling…

The Hunting Birds come to town

So I’ve been delving into The Hunting Birds sound and I must say I’m Impressed. They throw down a super cool groove, which is refreshing for a band that breathes in indie folk influences and exhales fluid rock. Their…

The Lineup - July 2018

You must remain creative to stay ahead of the game. 

Society is so fast paced these days people crave new and exciting experiences, new and exciting looks, new and exciting sounds. 

These things once so new quickly…

The Cannery Arts Centre have launched a group for musicians, songwriters, poets and other artists to collaborate and learn from each other. 

The inaugural Social Sound meeting was held on Tuesday, June 19. 

The event featured presentations…

Ash Grunwald Interview

It's been a while since we heard from Ash Grunwald. A household name in the noughties, his latest album 'NOW', came out in late 2015 before things went pretty quiet.

There's noone that silence was more deafening for than…

WAM Esperance/Goldfields Tour Wrap up

Local music acts and regional communities both felt the positive impacts of WAM’s new Goldfields-Esperance Touring Circuit, which saw over 600 people attend four free entry shows headlined by Lenora-based act The Tapping Stickz and Esperance three-piece Grand Casual in…

The Bridge - May 2018

Just as great music tracks embed themselves in the psyche and play over and over again as the soundtrack to our lives, amazing movie scores have that exact same ability to resonate. 

Often cinematic music becomes as recognisable…

The Lineup - May 2018

 

Over the last two weeks I have had no gigs. 

Seems rather odd to have a couple of weekends free. 

What I’ve noticed most is the impact a hectic schedule has on valuable relationships. It becomes very…

Ash Grunwald comes to town!

Ash Grunwald needs no introduction having been a key player in the Australian blues scene since early 2000. It is with great pleasure that we announce that on the 25th of May he will perform an exclusive Esperance show in…

CanJam Volume.2 was successful beyond our wildest imaginings. The Cannery Arts Centre Gallery is a sublime space for live music, and all in attendance experienced a thoroughly intimate vibe. After a hectic…

The Lineup - February 2018

How easy is it to become overwhelmed? Life happens at such a fast pace, where all guilty of taking on more than we can handle. I absolutely love what I do though I regularly question whether I’m heading in…

Valentine’s day is just around the corner, I hope your prepared. To be completely honest I’ve never really been overly excited about the date, dubbing February 14th hallmark day. Quite possibly…
