Everyone has to start somewhere. Ever dreamt of putting on gigs, managing an artist, or making a record but you only have skills and knowledge for part of the dream? MusicNSW is here to help.

A new course ‘Welcome to the jungle: Getting started in the music business’ is being presented in Byron Bay.

Pat Davern (Grinspoon)

With over 500,000 albums sold in Australia so far, Grinspoon guitarist and songwriter Pat Davern demoed the four-piece’s recent seventh LP Black Rabbits, at Byron’s own Music Farm Studios, which he happens to be co-owner of, alongside good pal Pete Murray.

Chryss Carr established marketing and PR firm AUM after 20 years in the music biz, following stints at labels Mushroom and Virgin/EMI. Her clients include major festival Bluesfest, events like NT’s National Indigenous Music Awards, and local artists such as Skipping Girl Vinegar.
