GC musicians get set to quit their day jobs

Six lucky Gold Coast musicians are about to get the career-boost of a lifetime. Thanks to funding from Council’s Regional Arts Development Fund and Indie Now, those six artists will receive the tools they need to create a viable business and quit their day jobs once and for all.

Indie Now is a professional development program designed to assist musicians to develop sustainable businesses. It is the brainchild of Emily Holler and Karen Andrews Latter – passionate advocates of the local music industry. But the program also draws on the expertise and resources of Griffith University, Blank GC, Pollination Music, J Music Australia, Miami Marketta and others.

Together they will offer training, mentoring and professional development tools so artists can sustain a viable career in the music industry. Themes will include marketing, finance, bookings administration, branding and most importantly—releasing products effectively.
