Ever wanted to Choose Your Own Adventure?
 
I don’t mean like in the books that you used to explore as a kid, I mean in life!
 
To turn the page and venture down a path without knowing what lies ahead, just because you think that it might get you to a place that you never even dreamed of.
 
Well, then welcome to my life… and the life of record producer & Bondi Beach Breakfast host on Bondi Beach Radio, Boston Rodriguez.
 
Life is to be enjoyed and from an early age, this fast-talking, energetic North London lad has built a life and career out of exploration.
 
Whether it be writing/presenting nationwide radio music documentaries whilst living in New Zealand, opening up the eyes and world of Kingston’s youth whilst working as an art auctioneer in Jamaica or his London  journey from star music student to record producer, the life of Boston Rodriguez is one of Choose Your Own Adventure and it is truly my pleasure to bring that adventure to you!
 
Let’s get into it!

Are you happy in your chosen career? Do you set yourself little checkpoints along the way where you re-assess where you’re at? Do you actually enjoy what you’re doing?
 
On a cold winter’s morning in Collingwood (Melbourne), I meet Ashleigh Hills, Tram Sessions GM, 123 Agency project manager and Woodlock acoustic/folk trio’s band manager for the first time. Originally from Dunedin, New Zealand, Ash arrived in Melbourne 7 years ago with no real concrete career plan and then stumbled across the Tram Sessions, a not-for-profit project that sees some of Australia’s most talented musicians perform live guerrilla concerts on Melbourne’s most popular method of transport, which is filmed and shared out to the masses.
 
With well over 3m views on YouTube, Tram Sessions boast a wealth of premiere established and emerging talent of the likes of Vance Joy, Gotye & The Basics, Aussie icon Paul Kelly, Alpine, Kingswood, Bonjah & many more. If you’re a person who craves discovering the wealth of new talent in the Australian music scene, then this YouTube channel is tailor-made for you!
 
Today’s chat about Tram SessionsWoodlock, Ash’s journey of professional development through a range of 123 Agency music industry roles and Porch Sessions, felt hanging out with an old friend and a what wicked way to start the weekend early. It’s was so energizing to spend an hour or so with a like-minded soul who has built a lifestyle and career for herself pursing her passions and I thoroughly enjoy surrounding myself with people like this, because ultimately we only have one life and it’s a short one, so why shouldn’t you spend your working hours doing something you love?
 
After all, someone out there has to be successful, why shouldn’t it be you?

Fuckin’ love the boys from Bonjah. 4 dudes from New Zealand who decided to form a band, booked a one-way ticket to Australia and never looked back!

Today’s podcast chat is with Regan LethbridgeBonjah’s lead guitarist, booking agent at 123 Agency and band manager at Lemon Tree Music.

Eddie Vedder impressions, finding, losing and then re-capturing true love, busking on the streets of Melbourne to being one of Australia’s premier rock bands of the independent scene. Loved catching up with Regs and here’s just one little gem that I left the podcast with that’s applicable to all you aspiring musicians out there.

“At the end of the day, all the bullshit aside… it comes down to good songs and if you got a good song there, and you’ve got a good team and you got a little bit of luck you’re in with a sniff.”

Words to live by. Enjoy the show!

Haarlo drop 4 new singles in 4 weeks! ‘Dreamlands’ EP launch – Northcote Social Club.

Posted on Updated on

Dream-pop duo Haarlo have dropped 4 new singles in 4 weeks! Yep, they’ve let loose these beauties in celebration of the Haarlo ‘Dreamlands’ EP launch this Thursday night!

One of the elements I savor most about working at the forefront of the Australian indie music scene is the opportunity to hear & promote music at that precise moment when artists/bands are about to take that bold step out into the wild for the 1st time… the great unknown… Will people love my music as much as I do.. Will I be famous.. Will I travel the world..

In the first single ‘Dreamlands’, New Zealand-born vocalist Stacey Gardiner and talented producer/multi-instrumentalist Jono Steer (Ainslie Wills, Hayden Calnin, Eliza Hull) join forces to produce a tune that now resides in a playlist I describe as night-time sunshine.. Manuka-honeyed vocals, synths and a beat that just floats me away..

“You might like it this way, I might like it differently…”  I love it this way..

Enjoy Haarlo’s ‘Dreamlands’ EP & we’ll see you at the Northcote Social Club!

Supported by one of our recent Hot & Delicious faves, Eliza Hull and Ainslie Wills, Haarlo launch their ‘Dreamlands’ EP at the Northcote Social Club this Thursday July 11th

DREAMLANDS EP LAUNCH
11 JULY 2013 – THE NORTHCOTE SOCIAL CLUB, MELBOURNE
