Council is proud to announce its 2020 Music Residency participants as well as a series of NEW online music events performed by this year’s artists!

Cardinia Shire’s Music Residency is an annual program renowned for connecting music industry professionals with local emerging talents. It focuses on developing participant’s skills, capacity building and live performance opportunities.

This year's participants will be mentored by Jarred Young (Bad Pony, Feelds), a well-known and respected artist, manager and booking agent. Jarred will also provide training on streaming a live performance and musical performance techniques.
The 2020 Music Residency artists are:
