Are you a muso serious about your career?

How serious are you?

There is a lot of dissent in the ranks regarding the 'lack of work' and I hear it often, yet I re-list so many names regularly in the gig guides... I have found over all these years there are a few pitfalls that some tend to fall into.

HEADS UP
MMAD  logo imageWhats On Logo button image MMAD THE STUDIO:
Lay down your sound, to help others find theirs

Musicians Making a Difference (MMAD) have recently launched a state of the art recording studio in the heart of Gosford. Thank to the support of Lucy Wicks MP, the Thyne Reid Foundation, and a successful Pozible crowd-funding campaign ‘The Studio’ at The Lounge Room is something truly special. Enter the control room through the enormous custom timber barn-door and take a seat on the signature antique leather lounge. You’ll immediately notice the floating ceiling baffles, completing the custom look while adding to the acoustic treatment, designed by professional sound engineers. Glance through the beautiful large window into the spacious live band room - complete with an in-house drumkit, upright piano, and plenty of room for full bands to lay down their unique sound live.

Sound Engineers and Producers will drool over the set-up, with highlights including the UA Apollo 8p, Audient ASP880, Native Instruments Complete 11 and Complete Kontrol S61 all capable of infinite production possibilities, which will sound beautiful playing back through the Adam A77x monitors. Studio sessions will benefit from specialty coffee served direct from The Lounge Room, optional catering packages and NBN Wi-Fi throughout the venue.

If all that’s not enough to get you excited, here’s the real kicker. The Studio is MMAD’s latest addition to a growing suite of social enterprises that seek to empower local creativity while looking out for the most vulnerable young people in our community. Any profits made from studio hire will be filtered straight back into the delivery of creative therapy programs that give a voice to disadvantaged young people and help them realise their true potential.

From the beginning the vision of this studio was that it would record the sound of both established and emerging artists, successful bands as well as disenfranchised youth reclaiming their self-belief. That vision is now a reality - and you can be a part of it.

For the month of March to celebrate the launch, ALL studio bookings are eligible to receive 20% off the standard hire rates.

The Studio is located in The Lounge Room at The MMADHOUSE, 342 Mann St, Gosford.

For standard pricing and further information visit: www.mmad.org.au/the-studio

Hoodoo Gurus imageWhats On Logo button image HOODOO GURUS - YOU AM I:
The Hoodoo Gurus and You Am I have been sharing stages for the last 25 years from New York to Nambucca Heads and are joining up to do it again, taking their iconic brand of rock and roll to Perth, Canberra, and regional areas around Australia in July and August.

The Gurus and You Am I boast nineteen acclaimed studio albums between them, most of which reached the upper echelons of the charts and went gold or platinum.

Both bands love playing their rock and roll and there’s not many around who are any better at it.

So, getting these old mates in the tour van for some gigs around the country seems like one hell of a good idea, with all the makings for a night to remember!

Pete Murray imageWhats On Logo button image PETE MURRAY ON THE COAST:
Byron Bay singer-songwriter and one of Australia’s most loved musicians, Pete Murray has released his new single,
Take Me Down, alongside the announcement of his sixth studio album, Camacho - available 2nd June.

With over one million album sales to his name, the quiet achiever of Australian music will showcase new tracks and old favourites on an epic 33-date national Camacho Tour that will kickstart in Lismore on July 12 and finish up in Darwin on September 9.

Beat-driven and anthemic, Take Me Down cleverly reveals a new direction for Pete, yet still manages to feel like a catch up with an old friend - his smooth, familiar voice both warm and inviting. “Take me down is about a beautiful relationship with an unknown future,” insights Pete. “It’s about not knowing how much time is left and being in the moment. It’s emotive, moody, sexual and vulnerable and will probably increase the population of this country!”

Determined to shake things up and find a fresh sound for the album, Pete explored different writing and recording techniques. “My main goal was to work with loops and beats and to have cool, phat drum sound,” says Pete. He collaborated with hip hop producer Trials (AB Original) to achieve the drum sounds he was looking for, and saddled up with an array of well-known industry talent to get the Camacho show on the road. “There was only one guy that I was interested in mixing this album and that was Eric J Dubowsky. He was starting to do a lot of phat, warm sounds and I really wanted this flavour of mixing on my album.” Also in the assemblage was Aussie producer Tony Buchen (Montaigne, The Preatures, Bob Evans), Sydney-based producer One Above aka Andrew Burford (Hilltop Hoods, Drapht, Allday), and ARIA winning producer Jon Hume (Matt Corby, Lisa Mitchell).

“The thing I wanted to do different with this album was to take my time and get it right. So many times in the past I have jumped into a studio for 4 - 6 weeks and recorded an album. Once the recording time is over, so is the album,” explains Pete, “with Camacho there was no rush, it was going to be finished when it was finished.”

And finished it is – guaranteed to be lapped up by new and old fans alike, Pete Murray has delivered a cool, uplifting, emotive, and powerful album and it will be celebrated and brought to life on stages across the country, taking in capital cities and a host of regional centres throughout July, August and September.

Pumped to hit the road and play his new tunes for fans across Australia, Pete enthuses, “I’m really excited about playing the new music and cannot wait to get out there and see the crowd’s reaction.”

Camacho is set for release on 2nd June and is available to pre-order from www.petemurray.com - all album iTunes pre-orders will instantly receive the Take Me Down single.
