With an already busy schedule including his popular HEAVEN’S GREATEST HITS shows and an 18-week run of shows with 1927 in 2023, multi-Platinum Award-winning Australian talent, Singer / Songwriter / Musician, the launch of Get Set Productions sees Singh is expanding his repertoire once again.
“’Get Set Productions’ sees me bring together (under the one umbrella) a variety of shows, to provide a home, to grow and produce new shows,” Jason Singh said.
The next step into producing shows for other artists came in 2020 during the pandemic, when Jason found himself looking for ways to support other artists by providing a sense of purpose during a time when it was hard to find one.
“Speaking to friends and peers in the industry it was clear to me, that so many had feelings of despair and I wanted to do something, to help,” Jason said.
Out of this came a series of tribute shows designed to suit venues and their density limits as they gradually came out of COVID restrictions in Victoria. These shows have since continued to grow.
“I’m very much an ideas person and I love creating, but I can’t do it all. Over the years I have learned so much about the music industry and I’ve always tried to share that where I can. Creating shows for my peers became a way to offer more than supportive words; an opportunity to share my skills and experience with other artists to help grow and nurture their careers.”
Tickets for the show go on sale December 20 at 10am. Head here for more info.
