I’m really excited to announce that I’ve just found our I’ve won a national grant that will allow me to spend three months living, networking and making music in Nashville from February next year.
The $15,000 Nashville Songwriter Residency grant was awarded by the Australia Council for the Arts – the Australian Government’s arts funding and advisory body – and helps cover my travel, accommodation and living costs.
The residency is being facilitated by renowned Australian musician and producer Mark Moffatt who has been based in Nashville for more than 15 years and has worked with the likes of Keith Urban, Neil & Tim Finn, the Divinyls, Slim Dusty, Ross Wilson, Yothu Yindi, and Mondo Rock.
I’m also hoping to head into the studio as part of the residency.
I was lucky enough to get chosen as one of two recipients out of 89 musicians who applied for the grant from across Australia. Thanks heaps to the Australia Council!
