Why is Great Southern Nights so important to NSW’s live music industry?

Great Southern Nights is an important initiative to get the music industry back on its feet after a tough couple of years. But it's not just about supporting musicians, but for the venues, the crews behind the scenes and the live agents, too. We all need this!

How do you feel about performing at Great Southern Nights?

I'm stoked to be part of the Great Southern Nights line up. There are so many incredible Australian acts to see in so many incredible venues all across New South Wales.

What are your three not to miss performances at GSN 2022?

There are so many fantastic performances to choose from, but I would have to say Electric Fields (Oxford Art Factory, Sydney), JK-47 (Albury Beer Deluxe, Albury) and Peking Duk (Beach Hotel, Byron Bay) are my highlights.

What excites you most about performing in Wollongong for Great Southern Nights?

There is something really special about the Wollongong crowd; they just really get amongst it and are really incredible to perform for!

For anyone planning a trip to Wollongong to see your GSN show, what would you recommend they do and see while they are in town?   

If you’re visiting Wollongong and surrounds, there’s no going past Anita's Theatre in Thirroul  for live music every time. Grab a bite to eat at Papis or The Swallowed Anchor, and drinks at Juniper Bar, The Frisky Flamingo, and The Scarborough Hotel.

What’s your favourite live music venue in Sydney, and why?

Enmore Theatre. I opened for Dizzie Rascal there in the very early days of my career and I just remember being up on the stage and kind of getting a sense of where I could take my live shows in the future. It was really special and has stuck with me ever since.

Where do you love performing in regional NSW?

Wollongong and Newcastle have to be my favourite NSW regions to perform in. They always have the best vibes and the crowd brings so much energy!

Where is your favourite place to travel in NSW, and why?

My favourite travel destination in NSW would have to be the Hunter Valley, every time! I love the scenery, the cellar doors and incredible food on offer.

What is your favourite restaurant in NSW, and why?

Stanbuli in Enmore! If you know, you know! It's SO GOOD!!

What is your favourite go to café for a coffee in NSW, and why?

Paramount Coffee Project. I stay in Chippendale a lot and I just know every time I go in there the coffee is going to be on point. They do a mean scrambled eggs too.
