Meg Mac Showcase

SBA Music was invited to Meg Mac's showcase at Leadbelly in Newtown earlier this month. She did a short set of about 45 minutes sharing songs off her long awaited debut album Low Blows; highlights included the songs Maybe It's My First Time and the single also titled Low Blows. The crowd listened listened closely as Meg Mac shared anecdotes of her song writing process and then delivered her performance with full gusto, from a place of authenticity. Her powerful and unique vocal timbre truly shone out as she sang to the backing of an excellent band. Meg Mac had the house rocking!

Check out her track Low Blows below:

SBA Music attended the Hearts for Arts: Music & Law event at the Giant Dwarf theatre in Redfern earlier this month. The event was hosted by the Arts Law Centre of Australia who pride themselves on empowering artists and creative communities through law.

The talk was presented as a panel with some of the best legal minds in Australian Arts law taking the velvet seat; Jules Munro (Simpsons Solicitors), Chloe Martin-Nicolle (Sony Music Australia), Duncan Collins (Ministry of Sound Australia) and Suzanne Derry (Arts Law), who skillfully guided the conversation. 

A number of interesting topics were covered including, the inner workings of a label and the music business, the difference between major and indie labels and the key principles of music licensing and copyright. One thing that stood out was that the music industry has a fast changing landscape driven by technological advancement and in order to make it in the business, one needs to be dynamic and adaptable in order to keep relevant.

Launching Pad: Ruel

At just 12 years old, Ruel was discovered by M-Phazes, the award-winning Australian producer/songwriter, when his father sent M-Phazes a demo, but did not expect to hear back.  In development for the past two years under the wing of the prolific producer, 14 year old Ruel co-wrote ‘Golden Years’ with M-Phazes' long-time collaborator Thief.  Set to be one of Australia’s brightest rising stars, Ruel just completed a support slot with alternative R&B artist Gallant, with a debut EP executive produced by M-Phazes due later this year.

Check out the single 'Golden Years' by M-Phazes Feat. Ruel.
