RADIO PRESENTER | CABLE TIES
Nick Brown is co-host of PBS FM’s breakfast show ‘The Breakfast Spread’ and member of Melbourne three-piece Cable Ties who released their self-titled debut album this year to glowing reviews, scoring both Triple R and Triple J’s coveted ‘Album of the Week’ spots and selling out their launch shows around Australia. We’ll talk to Nick about the importance of community radio for early career artists, the experience of releasing and touring the Cable Ties album this year and how he balances presenting a radio show with making music.
Romy Vager is the front woman and principle songwriter of Melbourne’s RVG who recently re-released their debut album ‘A Quality of Mercy’. Traversing both the personal and political, Romy moves effortlessly from imagining herself in the mind of the Bali Nine to exploring the isolation of being trans. With a festival appearance at Meredith later this year and official selection to showcase at SXSW in 2018, things don't look like they'll be slowing down for RVG. We’ll talk to Romy about her decision to re-release their debut album and the importance of finding the right team to support her musical vision.
