I’m very lucky in that many of my friends are much more talented and creative than I will ever be. These include Chris, who used to organise the Shuffle nights that I would occasionally play at, and Tim whose company Our Friends Electric is organising a series of events for Ray-Ban over the coming weeks and has asked me to play some tunes at one of them.
Tonight will see Matt Corby playing in the historic Hyde Park Barracks in Sydney, whilst tomorrow, November 16th, will see a number of up & coming local acts doing 30 minute sets with me filling in the gaps. The tour is being run off of the back of Ray-Ban’s Envision series, which aims to inspire undiscovered artists by highlighting the great work being done by inspiring people from across the globe, including LA based electronica-artists and Soundcloud superstar RL Grime and street artist Chase.
I start playing at 10am and end, after a number of great bands have played, at 6 and, with what looks to be rather changeable weather, it’s hard to know what to play. But this is the sort of stuff I’m thinking of – why not come along and have a listen? We’ll be opposite The Steyne Hotel on Manly Beach.
