Well I thought I was just going to be going to work as per usual tomorrow- but it seems I’ll be getting on a plane and heading to the red carpet of the Sydney Opera House as a finalist in this year’s MusicOz Awards.
It’s an expensive undertaking to fly up there at short notice (as everything in being a musician seems to be hard on my bank balance!) but I think win or lose- sometimes you need to take opportunities such as this to stop and acknowledge the hard work that you have put into creating a song and let it be celebrated by yourself, your peers and the industry. All too often we have already moved onto recording the next song while the previous one is just finding it’s way out into the world- so tomorrow night, I’ll pop on a frock, enjoy a little bit more sunshine than we currently have in Melbourne- (although Melbourne in your defence you really have turned it on today!) and celebrating the diversity and depth of Australia’s unsigned talent.
You can watch the awards live and then on repeat right here:
