    Every year the music students at North Metropolitan TAFE put together and release a compilation CD showcasing the talent and diversity of the performance students, with 2017 being the second in Richmond Street Records’ Dissolved series. Bob Gordon checks in with one of the featured students, singer/songwriter, Anthony Lloyd.

    Music called to Anthony Lloyd as a youngster, but he almost didn’t hear it at first.

    “The best thing about writing and singing soul music is that it has heart, and sometimes these days people try to get caught up with being intelligent, clever and witty with their lyrics, and I don’t possess any of those skills, but what I do possess is to be honest and to be true.”

    FRIDAY

    We’re back in Bridgetown for our annual pilgrimage to The Blues. A scant three-hour drive South of Perth, this idyllic location this year hosts the TWENTY-FIFTH edition of their iconic festival: a uniquely not-for-profit, volunteer-run event attracting far too many cool musicians to spend a moment longer than necessary relaxing after driving through the glorious 33ºC spring heat.
