WAAPA’s Music Artists present original works alongside reimagined classics from the popular music cannon in an annual showcase called Songbook Sessions. Playing next Wednesday and Thursday at The Edith Spiegeltent at ECU Mount Lawley, the academy’s rising musical stars will feature in solo, duo, trio, full band and even full vocal choir renditions across the two nights.

WAAPA’s strong Contemporary Music program has consistently produced formidable talent – as demonstrated by national stars such as Tim Minchin and Meg Mac, through to more recent up-and-comers like Dulcie, Blake Rose and Sydnee Carter.

Vinnie Crea, Coordinator of the Music Artist program and Music Director of Songbook Sessions, is looking forward to showcasing the exciting talents of his current cohort of students.

“The Music Artist students gain immense benefit from collaborating in an extremely talented, ‘hand picked’ cohort. The real-world, hands-on preparation for this show is totally relevant to their professional working life as performers,” says Crea.

When it comes to an artist’s success in the music industry, Crea believes that mastering the art of simplicity is key.

“Keeping it simple is so important, yet so hard to manage. Too many artists overcomplicate their songs or music and it becomes inaccessible to a mainstream audience,” he says.
