Jacob Diamond wins 720 ABC’s WAM Festival comp
Our good friends at 720 ABC this year were not only amazing supporters of the WAM Festival, but also of WA musicians in general. Offering one lucky Saturday Spectacular act the chance to record for free in their state of the art Studio 620, as well as the free use of an expert sound technician and producer, they asked punters on the day to name their favourite bands and include the #720soundcheck. The result – congrats to Jacob Diamond!
His performance at Universal Bar saw a heap of critical acclaim (including making the Au Review’s Top 5), and punters agreed with his set being the most talked about on social media for 720 ABC’s competition. He’ll also be interviewed and play a song or two on 720’s Drive with John McGlue 4.15pm Thursday 20 November, so keep it locked. This is just another fine step 720 ABC has been taking to increase the diversity and quality of their local music coverage, so expect even more WA-music focused initiatives to roll out soon.
