Connecting Song announces three musicians as part of mentorship project

This year, Connecting Song is giving three bands the opportunity to work with music professionals to record an original song and video clip.

After much competition, the three lucky applicants for the project have been chosen. The initiative brings music experts Adalita, Trem One and Tim Neal together to mentor the chosen performers in an amazing environment.

The chosen musicians for the initiative are rock singer Jeff Harwood, blues and roots musician and radio presenter Tex Miller, and hip hop performer Trem One. The lucky three will have their songs debuted at Geelong After Dark – an opportunity too good to miss. Connecting Song is partnered with Mountain to Mouth, a project that held an 80 kilometre walk titled Extreme Arts Walk involving masses from all over the Geelong region.

The artists have been asked to create songs and video clips based on a certain location in Geelong. City of Greater Geelong General Manager of Investment and Attraction Brett Luxford commented that he was “thrilled to support the development of these artists from three very different genres of music”. He was totally supportive of the event, and in relation to the artists stated that “through their work, we will all gain a deeper understanding of their sense of place and connection to the land, while perhaps reflecting on our own experiences…and that’s what a contemporary songline is really all about”.

An amazing event, and a real chance to get involved with the creativity and musical interpretation of Geelong locations and what they have to offer.
