If live, original music is your thing…?

Those who visit or are lucky enough to live within the south-eastern corner of Queensland know how blessed we are to have such a naturally beautiful playground. Trust me, it’s so much more than that! Anywhere between the Sunshine Coast to the Gold Coast is host to a bunch of rad, locally billed, live music events. Talking it up just a little more, these events are suitable to anyone’s taste and budget.

One such series of events, is run by a collective called the East Coast Originals (ECO). Should your perfect idea of a Sunday afternoon be a free, family friendly, live music session; you’d best include one of their events on your calendar. ECO run family friendly, crowd funded events that present top notch emerging, local and touring artists.  I urge you to get on board their Facebook page and see what is coming up.

The ECO are a Not for Profit organisation responsible for the coordination and presentation of three, soon to be four events held over the south-east. Scarborough Originals is held the first Saturday of the month in Jamieson Park, Peregian Originals is the second Sunday of the month in Peregian Beach, Cooroy Originals and Moffat Beach Originals which hosted its first event on Father’s Day this year to an overwhelming crowd.

Peregian Originals hosted in Peregian Beach, has been running now for over 15 years and is an enthusiastically attended afternoon. It has hosted some of Australia’s most loved and popular new artists, providing a grass roots platform for emerging artists to garner an audience and grow a fan base, working on their musicianship for an appreciative crowd.

So, if live, original music is your thing…grab your picnic rug, round up Nanna and the kids and go check out an East Coast Originals event near you!

Getting Creative on the 'Soul Coast'

What does it mean to be a creative artist? Arts ventures and organisations on the Sunshine Coast are currently growing exponentially. The shift in how our community see and value arts and the role it has to play in our lives is ever snowballing. The creative arts inject fundamental vitality into all aspects of our growing community. In each individuals' creative expression we all gain something. Gathering within this NFP collective, the Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance, are artists, educators, innovators and philanthropists alike. Our fascination as humans in everything around us, informs everything we do. Fortunately for us living here on the Sunshine Coast we have this extremely pro active collective whom collaborate regularly to keep the arts alive and thriving, forming a recognisable identity for our generation and those to come.

The Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance have done it again with their #juiceandjam breakfast this morning. Encouraging creative enterprise, innovative d…

Filling the Girl Punk Voiid

Walking into the Foundry early, I was pretty keen on the night's line-up. There was a crowd starting to mill around the stage and a bit of a buzz to be honest, tonight’s headliners are the irrepressible Bleeding Knees Club with The Pinheadz & Voiid supporting…this was not the first I’d heard of the ostentatious girl group.  In fact I was looking forward to seeing some girlshreik, it had been a while since I’d heard an all girl punk band that impressed me to be honest.

The girls were all so comfortable in their skin on stage, an electric presence that flaunted true punk ego. They sauntered onto stage, and with an almighty bass line they launched straight into it as did the crowd. Voiid certainly have built a local following and everyone was writhing & cascading all over the joint with enthusiasm. Obvious influences came shining through, I decided I needed to have a little chat with the girls to spread the word on the hot asfuck sounds hitting my earholes…
So you got together…

Journey through Desire Path.

Talking with Yeo, I felt like I was chatting to a friend, he is humble and honest. We spoke about the themes intertwined in 'Desire Path' and how each collaboration came about.
Your last album was really playful both in the music and the lyrics.  Listening to your new album ‘Desire Path’, I felt like a it’s journey through different relationships. 
Yeah, I think even if the lyrics get really literal, music to me is based on emotion and emotions are kind of nothing without a relationship to give it context I feel.
Well when you think about, it relationships rule our lives, whether it be a friendship, family or a work colleague they are always an influence; but I feel quite a few of these tracks are about love relationships?
There’s a few on this album, and I haven’t done this for a while. The last album had a couple, but I feel like I got more honest on this one. 
I agree, you have a great way with words and that draws me in to your music. I take an expression of human emotions and …
