WAM Member Spotlight: Whildfyre semi finalists for ACMF

16 Nov


The Australian Music Children’s Foundation (ACMF) mission is to ensure that all Australian children, regardless of their cultural backgrounds or socio-economic and geographical circumstances, have the opportunity to benefit from a musical education. Every year, every student from every school across Australia is invited to put pen to paper and enter their original song in ACMF’s annual National Songwriting Competition. Winners receive prize-money which can be allocated towards musical equipment and tuition. ACMF’s annual National Songwriting Competition is a nationwide initiative designed to encourage creativity and self-expression through songwriting.

Excitingly, WAM Members and youth act Whildfyre have been shortlisted for their song In London in this years ACMF National Songwriting Competition, taking their song to the final judging round. Made up by Emerson Galic (Vox, Guitar), Quinn Galic (Guitar, backing Vox), Draven Andrews-Clarke (Drums) and Partick Cooke (Bass), this is an incredible achievement and means the band are in the top 15% of entries received! Final prize winners will be announced in the next few weeks so stay tuned.
