Two days ago, these lucky SEED artists got to visit the birthplace of Rock’n’Roll - Sun Studio in Memphis. (This studio is famous as the discovery location of musical legends including Elvis Presley, B.B King and Johnny Cash!!!) Click our highlights to see a few clips behind the scenes. 🎸🎸🎸 #qldcon#usatrip#australianstudytrip#sunstudio#memphis
Five very lucky Popular Music students are currently on an epic USA study trip! Most recently they have been writing songs with @mtsu students, visiting the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, meeting key industry figures - and just yesterday they had the opportunity to record their original songs at the amazing Ocean Way Studios in Nashville. Living the dream! Head on over to @seedgriffith to see videos of their travels so far. 🌟
Over the next two weeks, five of our Popular Music students have been given the trip of a lifetime to the USA. Starting with the @taximusic conference, last night they performed at a live music venue in LA (this particular clip is featuring Jordan Huxley from @yondertheband). Today they are travelling to Nashville for a week of songwriting and recording with the pros! Follow along on @seedgriffith for live story updates. 🙌 #studypopularmusic#usatrip#studytrip#qldmusic#goldcoastmusic#brisbanemusic#qldcon
Last night the Popular Music program had their third year graduate showcase. It’s always a bittersweet event - we are so excited and proud of our students, but we will miss them all! Here is a little clip of the final act from the night @yondertheband. Crowd singalongs for the win! #qldcon#qldmusic#studymusic
I am a serial outfit repeater! But who wouldn’t in this gorgeous @sabastyle dress 💁♀️ It was wonderful to sing with you @ninawildman and @phatphace9 for the @monthlymorningconcerts outreach project with @brisbaneopenhouse #mmc#brisbane#performer#soprano#griffithuni#qldcon
I had a blast doing the Australian Honours Ensemble Program through the Qld Open Conservatorium during the last week of school holiday's! I played French Horn in the Wind Orchestra & under conductor Dr Ralph Hultgren AM & was even given the opportunity to conduct one of the pieces during a rehearsal 🎼📯🎶👍 #qldcon#AHEP#frenchhorn#brassplayers#brass#windorchestra
Tonight I had the pleasure of seeing the @qldcon graduates perform one last time together following a workshop under the Uber talented @sharonmillerchip which they were part of this week and culminating in tonight’s show. Well done all! And thanks to Mr Paul Delitt who makes this happen every year. And from tonight’s talent it’s great to know Australia’s future musical theatre is in good hands! And a nice surprise to have @lucydurack and @rohanmbrowne perform as well. Good luck to all in your future endeavours! #qpac#musical#musicaltheatre#qldcon#theatre#broadway#newyork#losangeles#brisbane

Missing this show, and missing this gal. What a treat it was to get to spend four months as the strong, gentle, and loving Marmee. She taught me so much and grateful doesn’t even begin to cover how I feel about having had the chance to be in Little Women, and to have worked alongside such incredible actors and creatives. #littlewomen#qcgulittlewomen#qcgumusicaltheatre#qldcon#musicaltheatre#marmee 📷 by @nickmorrisseyphoto

What do you get if you blend warm vocal harmonies with grungy, psych rock elements? @_nightwoods_
Ahead of their upcoming gigs at @nightquarter and @thecitysoundsbrisbane, we decided to ask our fave new psych-rock act a few questions to get to know them a little bit better. Hit the link in our bio to read more! #seedgriffith#qldcon#brisbanemusic#nightwoods
Can you believe last week was the *second last* night of our @nightquarter concert series for 2018?! We can't.
@sophiakoopmusic, @tiarnihope.wav, @hazelmeimusic and @amberstoneofficial all did stunning performances and we thought it only right to share some of our favourite moments. Hit the link in our bio for our highlights! 💖 #seedgriffith#qldcon#goldcoastmusic#nightquarter
Please excuse our off-centre camera shot - we were distracted by what was happening on stage. We thought we were witnessing an illusion or experiencing some kind of hallucination! Because @hazelmeimusic is waaay too good to be true... 😜 #seedgriffith#qldcon#hazelmei

“I think that the internet has been a really big blessing and curse for upcoming musicians of this era. On one hand we have massive opportunity to release our work independently and run our own platforms, but the result of this is a market that is so oversaturated with mediocrity and content that it makes it difficult to stand out from the crowd and be heard.” ~ @thewlvsband are playing at our final show as part of the @nightquarter concert series this Friday and we thought it was the perfect opportunity to have a chat!
