The State Of Music is a weekly live-streamed series, featuring exclusive artist interviews alongside live performances from Australia’s best and brightest musical talent, from established household names to the hottest emerging acts.
Curated, professionally filmed and recorded by Mushroom, the episodes will be broadcast on YouTube, Facebook and the Victoria Together website every Sunday night at 7.30 pm AEST – starting this week, Sunday 3 May.
Kicking off proceedings in Episode One are four of Australia’s biggest names in music (in alphabetical order): ARIA-winning WA outfit BIRDS OF TOKYO; guitar and songwriting local hero DIESEL; Melbourne singer-songwriter, and producer and multi-instrumentalist G FLIP; and one of Australia’s most loved singer-songwriters JAMES REYNE.
Mushroom’s very own MICHAEL GUDINSKI will also join to discuss the creation of Music From The Home Front and how he pulled the event together in a week with the help of long-time friend Jimmy Barnes. Episode 1 will be hosted by radio legend ROSIE BEATON, former triple j Super Request host and big Aussie music fan.
What’s more, fans will be able to interact live with the show’s talent, submitting questions for artists to answer via a moderated livestream. Tune in to watch your favourite homegrown names from the front row comfort of home.
