Ever since my early 20s, I’ve based my life choices and career around pursuing what I love in life and Sounds Australia Export Music Producer, Glenn Dickie is a guy who epitomises this.
 
Glenn Dickie AKA Glenny G spent 12 years as a radio presenter at 3RRR in Melbourne and then another 12 at EMI Music Australia in A&R/Promotions/Marketing working with artists such as Lily Allen, Katy Perry, Sigur Ros, You Am I, signing acts such Miami Horror, Ricki-Lee, Oh Mercy and was part of a team that signed The Cat Empire, Airbourne, Alison Wonderland and hip hop acts 360 and PEZ. 
 
He now travels the world with Sounds Australia as Export Music Producer taking the very best of Australian music to all the world’s largest music conferences including SXSW, Canadian Music Week, The Great Escape (UK), Americana, Music Matters (Singapore), Reeperbahn (Germany), CMJ Music Marathon and many, many more.
 
Amongst hundreds of others, Courtney Barnett, Chet Faker, Flume and Vance Joy all played Sounds Australia showcases in their first year of export and benefitted from repeat Sounds Australia performance opportunities in the year following.
 

Anyway, my friendship with GG started back in 2011, when the sister of a friend of mine from my Emirates Airline days checked into the Bowery Ballroom in New York at an event called The Aussie BBQ, with a line-up featuring DZ Deathrays, Paul Dempsey, Bliss N Eso, Blue King Brown and a whole swag of the most amazing Australian musicians.

I was like… “Wow… what a line-up… Whats this all about??”
 
I immediately Googled The Aussie BBQ, got in touch with The Aussie BBQ organisers (Glenny G and Aussie journalist/music industry stalwart Mary Mihelakos) and next minute you know I am jetting over to Austin (Texas) in 2013 to shoot photography/produce social media at The Aussie BBQ and whole swag of other Sounds Australia events. I then returned to the USA for 3 months earlier this year, where I recorded a number of podcasts, shot photos of Michelle Obama’s keynote speech with Queen Latifah and Missy Elliot on #LetGirlsLearn, Vance Joy’s US tour at Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Wolfmother’s SXSW packed house at Easy Tiger and much, much more (that’s actually the short version… seriously).
 
I’ve met so many wonderful people through GG and his amazing partner, Van Picken (Comes With Fries), so I was stoked to catch-up with him last week at APRA/AMCOS HQ in Ultimo, Sydney. They have both made an impact on my career & in my life. And I’m just one person in the Australian music industry… Imagine that at scale!
 
Super chats, brother & thanks for making the time. I hope that all you guys listening enjoy this podcast is much as I did. Awesome hangs!

23 degrees and the blue skies are shining in Sydney as I sit down for a beer & a podcast with Young Henrys Brewery & Distillery, co-founder, Oscar McMahon. 
 
Founded in 2012, it’s clear that Oscar’s values and passion for doing what you love in life are reflected in his business, as what started as a small batch brewery in iconic Sydney suburb, Newtown, has evolved into a myriad of connected, community-focused projects that encompass the Young Henrys Brewery & bar in Newtown, The Unicorn Hotel in Paddington, the launch of a new distillery as part of the brewery and this Sunday, Oscar McMahon & his team, held a launch event at Young Henrys in partnership with Pingala and the people of to become Sydney’s first community solar co-operative, reducing the carbon footprint of his business by committing to install community-funded solar panels on the roof of the brewery.
 
So apart from making pretty damn tasty beers (I was at Young Henrys Brewery just 2 weeks ago myself), Oscar McMahon is a super inspirational guy and for any budding entrepreneur with a idea burning a hole in their brains, then this podcast is a fantastic place to start.

Ambition & passion the keys to success with Tiff Waldron | Inspiring podcast interview

I am ambitious, I love the banter and am a big believer in surrounding yourself with passionate, like-minded souls who bring the best out of you in your personal life and professional career and quite often these mix quite well together, as I’ve discovered as a professional in both the music industry and the digital sphere over the past 10 years.
 
Back in 2010 I met an TV editor, by the name of Alister Robbie, whilst I was working as a music supervisor on Ballistyx Snowboard Show on Channel GO! Over the past 6 years our own parallel paths have driven each other forward, as gentlemen with a passion for life and shared ambition.
 
Flash forward 6 years later, Al’s production company The Post Project is thriving, and my own career and business grows from strength-to-strength and it’s exciting to think how far we’ve both come in such a short space of time.
 
One of the wonderful elements of focusing my energies on nurturing positive friendships like these, is that invariably I meet new like-minded people from their world (and them mine) and our shared network of energizing, inspiring people propels us all forward to a life of great joy and success (don’t worry, there are still plenty of challenges along the way, but I like to focus on the positive) 😀
 
Through my friendship with Al and shared our love of craft beer, I’ve met a lot of interesting, intelligent and inspiring individuals whom I now count as my friends, including ambitious Two Row Bar co-founder and Good Beer Week social media lead, Tiffany Waldron.
 
4 years ago, Tiff up and quit her full-time job to follow her passions and just two years later, out of her passion for delicious and different “frothies” and her social media work with Good Beer Week, Two Row Bar sprung to life. With five rotating taps that change weekly and feature only the best craft beer from Australia, the USA and around the world, Two Row Bar has become a  hub for Australian craft beer lovers, brewers and Fitzroy locals to call their own.
 
It’s uplifting to see so many of my friends shoot for the stars, put their money where their mouth is by taking a punt and watch as their dreams come to life before my very eyes, so if you’re energised and inspired by the excitement of discovering delicious new craft beers, learning more about the evolution of craft beer in both Australia and the USA and the not-so-secret to generating success from your passion and ambitions, then this little podcast is the one for you. 
 
So proud of you, Tiff. Let’s get into it!

Why I love The Toff feat. Ella Hooper & Texture Like Sun

Posted on Updated on

Ella Hooper live at The Toff

I love The Toff in Town.. ❤

This June has seen Ella Hooper and beautiful indie folk project Texture Like Sun performing a dual Tuesday residency at one of Melbourne’s top live venues, The Toff in Town. 3 weeks back, I had friends visiting Melbourne on consecutive Tuesday nights, so I took them down to The Toff to show-off Melbourne’s fantastic live music scene and a few cheeky beers.

Whether it be the club/bar area with dining for a few cocktails or the warm, boutique performance space with candle-lit tables, from the minute you walk in The Toff In Town there’s just a beautiful energy that just makes you feel right at home. Both weeks I headed straight to the bar, ordered myself a delicious pint of local craft beer Thunder Road Brewing Co Autumn Pale Ale and sat back to enjoy the show.

My first time live, I fell in love with Texture Like Sun immediately. Captivated from start to finish… Ella Hooper was showcasing most recent single ‘Häxan’ with boundless energy on stage and it was fantastic to be able to support one of my mates hittin’ the skins for Ella (wicked Melbourne-based drummer Ryan Mano – shameless plug 😃).

Just the perfect evening.. two weeks in a row.. bumping into familiar faces, making new friends, top-line music and a wonderful vibe… The Toff in Town is definitely up there as one of my favourite live entertainment venues in Australia’s music capital. If you’re after live music in Melbourne tonight, you now know where you’re heading.

Thank you Toff. Thank you Melbourne

Not only open 7 nights a week, The Toff features a killer, diverse array of local & international entertainment, from rock n roll soul to burlesque dancers to the Midnight Express every Thursday night, which could well see you knocking back cocktails ’til 5am on a Friday morning.. unless you’ve got a real job.. and even then.. 😉
