Such a wonderful thing to be on this sampler. A big THANK YOU AMRAP for considering my track and including me on the sampler very VERY Happy.
Amrap has announced the 12 winners for the Amrap ‘Fresh From Queensland’ sampler. With over 75 artists submitting tracks for consideration the sampler showcases the best and brightest of the Queensland music scene. The Sampler will be distributed nationally in November to over 300 community stations and to delegates at the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia’s (CBAA) National Conference.
The sampler showcases a range of genres and up and coming Queensland artists including Drawn From Bees, Little Scout, Ball Park Music, Blame Ringo and Hunz.
Select artists from the sampler are performing an exclusive showcase for community radio broadcasters, music directors and QLD media at the Amrap Fresh From Queensland showcase. The showcase is held on Friday November 20, 2009 at The Troubadour in the Fortitude Valley as a part of the CBAA National Conference.
In addition to featuring on the Amrap ‘Fresh From Queensland’ sampler all 12 winners had their featured track added to Amrap’s AirIT. AirIT is community radio’s free online portal of new release Australian music. Broadcasters from around Australia use AirIT to access music via CD and digital download. AirIT was launched in September and predominantly contains Australian music from major and independent record labels, with artists from the Amrap ‘Fresh From Queensland’ sampler being amongst the first unsigned artists accessing AirIT.
