The annual Electronic Music Conference (EMC) was held in Sydney earlier this month, hosting guests and speakers from around the world. QMusic was able to provide independent Brisbane artist, MARLOE., with the opportunity to attend the conference as well as arranging a one-on-one with 120 Publishing and a co-writing session with Akacia.
Combining dream-pop and soaring lush vocals with hints of electronica, MARLOE. was excited to harness the opportunity to spend time in the studio with other talented producers as well as gain insight into how publishing can turn a profit for emerging artists.
"Just being around all these talented and knowledgeable people and getting to pick their brains about their day to day taught me a lot about the many avenues you can explore as a writer within the industry."MARLOE.
Spending two days at Forbes Studio, MARLOE. worked with both Akacia and Alius on various tracks for both herself and other producers, where she “learnt so much from her when it comes to songwriting”.
The one-on-one with 120 Publishing “opened my eyes to the world of publishing and how it can differ from boutique agencies to the bigger companies” MARLOE. says.
Venturing down to Sydney and spending time with industry professionals, MARLOE. was astounded by the passion and support that others in the industry shared with her and her work.
“You don’t have to be a big well-known artist for others within the industry to be excited by your project and want to help it grow. I definitely didn’t know this and was amazed by how many people genuinely wanted to help in whatever way they could to see me succeed, and help me forge those connections to make that happen.”MARLOE.
With an opportunity like this, MARLOE. feels that she has forged connections that she believes will assist her long into the future. To stay in the loop with more opportunities like this, be sure to join our Industry Connect mailing list below.

Australia’s live performance industry needs an assurance from the Federal Government it will be included in the next economic stimulus package. This is urgently required to prevent a complete and permanent industry shutdown, costing thousands of jobs and forcing the closure of performing arts and commercial companies and venues for good.
