Following the success of past projects across WA, the Sounds of the Great Southern is the newest addition to WAM’s “Sounds of” programs, which aim to provide recording skills development to emerging musicians and skilled audio engineers in remote and regional areas.
Like WAM, Brookfield Rail is a passionate supporter of promoting local talent, and working to provide the necessary skills and opportunities to regional communities to allow that talent to be showcased to the world.
Brookfield Rail has had the privilege of supporting three of WAM’s ‘Sounds of’ Projects across three very diverse regions: the Wheatbelt, the Goldfields, and now the Great Southern.
Manager Corporate Affairs Melanie Henley said there was no doubt that regional WA was home to some serious musical talent, and the Great Southern was no exception.
“The calibre of the artists on the Sounds of the Great Southern is truly mind blowing. Hearing their performances at the launch, it is evident just how much musical talent lives in the region. It may just be the best Sounds of Project yet,” Ms Henley said.
“Through our ongoing partnership with WAM we’re proud to say we’ve been involved in developing the regional music landscape in WA and contributed to the beginning of what is hopefully many long and successful careers in music.”
Artists included The Tidswell Twins with The North Albany Senior High School Band (Albany), Willow (Denmark), 40 Kays Out (Katanning), Ron Coyne (Albany), Rastatrix (Denmark), Blue Stuka (Takalarup), Carla Geneve (Albany), Mary Jayne & The Smoke Detectors (Denmark), Kris Nelson (Albany) and Isla Imogen (Albany).
