Summertime Sessions in the Village organisers have launched a new program giving young Gold Coast artists an opportunity to perform in front of the city’s music fans.
‘First 15’ allows an up-and-coming youth performer to strut their stuff for 15 minutes before the two more experienced artists at the weekly Mudgeeraba event.
Jacob Biermann kicked things off for the summer series in October. Jacob, currently studying at Kings Christian College hopes one day to pursue music professionally. He’s placed first, second and third consistently at the Gold Coast Eisteddfod and has performed at both the Mudgeeraba and Gold Coast Shows and with Youth Music Venture. Jacob opened for Sophia Koop and ARIA-Award nominee Emily Wurramara.
He’ll be followed on Fridasy 2 Novemer by LaShae Stockman, an 11yo uke player from Mudgeeraba Creek State School who’ll share the lineup with Tonesandi and Harry J Hart.
And 12 year old Charlie Mitchell (pictured) will appear on Friday 16 November ahead of performances by Maite Inae and Ben Goldstein. Charlie is only 12 years old and already has achieved so much. He’s only just started playing guitar to accompany his singing and is keen on a career in the music industry. He’s participated in the Youth Music Venture, performed at the Gold Coast Show and has busked at local markets and placed first at the Gold Coast Eisteddfod. You can check out his music on YouTube and Facebook under ‘Charlie Mitchell Music.’
