Brisbane indie-electronic outfit Strangely Enough are going from strength to strength, with a little help from Industry Connect.
Formed in 2017, Strangely Enough is fronted by Brisbane-based multi-instrumentalist and studio engineer Greg Olley.
The band have been taking huge strides of late, scoring a premiere for new single Graceville over at Scenestr followed by the track quickly picking up airplay on triple j's Home & Hosed. The band also unveiled a video for the single via Music Is My Muse, which will play on MTV this week as part of their 'Upload' playlist.
Olley has been attending QMusic's Industry Connect workshop program, and says the information and advice gleaned from its facilitators has helped greatly in moving the band forward.
"Attending these workshops allowed me to communication and coordinate much more effectively with my PR manager...The guidance from Trina and other presenters helped me to plan out how I would make the most of my release by helping me to turn my release into a campaign."Greg Olley
"I think most musicians operating at my level can get a lot out of these workshops," Olley said.
"They are targeted really well being more advanced than a basic introduction to the music industry but not aimed musicians who have already made it".
Songwriters who participated in Industry Connect in 2017 & 2018 can now apply to be part of AMPLIFY, a newly announced songwriting and development opportunity.
