Canadian Music Week chooses Australia

17 Dec

Canadian Music Week (CMW) has announced that Australia will be the ‘spotlight country’ for CMW 2015 (5-9 May 2015 in Toronto). The event will highlight Australia’s strength as a music exporter and follows a very successful CMW 2014 for Australian music. After showcasing Australian talent in previous years including The Jezabels, The Falls, Jordi Lane, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Blue King Brown, The Beards, Kate Miller Heidke, DZ Deathrays, The Lazys, Busby Marou, Emma Louise and You Am I, CMW 2015 will see Australia take the international focus.

Of course this opportunity is primed for WA acts to grab their fair share of the spotlight, and WAM and Sounds Australia ecourage WA acts to apply by December 31 to be in the running to showcase.
