There’s a lot of great music to be found in Brisbane, you just have to know where to find it. That’s where I come in. Like everyone, I love music and get a thrill from discovering a new favourite band. Living in London further fuelled my appetite for music, as I was able to attend cheap gigs, Europe’s best festivals, and was generally surrounded by incredibly creative people. As I rediscover Brisbane I’ll be uncovering emerging local artists and talent in the city’s evolving music scene. As a Creative Drinks contributor I’ll be providing you with the latest music news; info about the best upcoming gigs and festivals; and the coolest music venues around Brisbane. If you’re an aspiring artist or in a band feel free to contact me at
