Brisbane dance pop duo Bayview Terrace have released their first single My House, aided by a release strategy developed with the help of QMusic Program Manager Trina Massey through the Industry Connect music industry workshop program.
The track was premiered on music website Happy, who described it as a “layered, danceable earworm you’ll be tapping your feet to for the rest of the week”.
Comprised of Guy Stacey (vocals, guitar, synth) and Ryan Stewart (vocals, synth, saxophone), Bayview Terrace attended their first workshop in October this year and say the experience helped them navigate their way through the release process.
“We’re still a really new outfit so being able to speak with people like (QMusic Executive Officer) Joel Edmondson, Sarah Chipman (Title Track), and Trina Massey was invaluable for our growth,” they said.
“Attending the workshop really helped us to set realistic expectations and goals, but more importantly provided us with the know-how to achieve those expectations and goals. The support we were given in terms of executing a release strategy was amazing.”
Massey saw potential in Bayview Terrace right from the start “I was immediately excited by their passion and engagement,” she said.
“I’m very excited to hear more music from this act in the future.”
Guy and Ryan say they wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the program to other musicians. “Getting yourself out there, meeting like-minded people is so important,” they said.
“I think everyone walked out of the room with some knowledge they didn’t have prior.”
