West Australian Music (WAM) launched the CD Sounds of the Great Southern at the Albany Town Hall on Saturday 27 May.
Following the official launch, the artists played their music at a concert, which drew a capacity audience who showed great appreciation of the songs.
Sounds of the Great Southern was a GSDC-supported three-week recording session that brought highly regarded sound engineers together with ten of the region’s most talented groups and solo performers, giving regional musicians access to top quality sound engineering skills and equipment.
The CD was the Great Southern component of a WAM musical talent development program that is covering the state’s nine regions.
The recording is available free from the Vancouver Arts Centre and community resource centres in the region.
