Local Byron singer songwriter Nick Cunningham has scored the spot on the Falls Byron line-up for this year after thousands of votes were cast for the Foster A Band competition.

Nick is a folk singer/songwriter based in Byron Bay who has released two EPs – ‘Letters’ (2015) and ‘In Between’ (2017). 

I’m really pumped to have the opportunity to play at Falls Festival!’ said Nick.

He was up against plenty of quality competition with Aine Tyrrell, Banksia, Garage Sale and Gratis Minds in the running.

‘We had an incredible range of northern rivers talent in our Foster A Band comp for Falls Byron and the best response yet from voters since we launched the initiative in 2016,’ said Falls Byron Director Brandon Saul.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
