DUNEDIN MUSICIANS SET TO INSPIRE BUDDING TALENT
Calling all young bands, performers and musicians aspiring to gig and record in Dunedin, and gain insight into how the music business works – your time has come.
Craig has toured Aotearoa NZ and Europe with cloudboy, worked in arts funding and development here and in the UK, and studied Indian classical music in the UK. He plays in OMMU, Heka, Tall Folk, Lara Rose Band, The Broken Heartbreakers, and the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra. He writes and records music, and teaches violin and guitar. AMPED has been running since 2012, beginning as the Chicks Project. A project of the Dunedin Fringe, AMPED now consists of workshops with local and national industry professionals, and live gigs geared towards kick-starting the next generation’s careers in music.
“My teenage years in Dunedin were full of amazing music, made by many people who I feel blessed to call my friends now. Dunedin has a wonderful music scene, full of truly great artists, teachers, mentors, producers and audiences. I'm delighted to be helping a new generation of young artists understand something of how the business of music works, and how they can best make their way in it.”
Amped Music Project 2023 runs over four weekends in August and early September.
Amped Music Project is proudly produced by Dunedin Fringe, with funding and support from Otago Community Trust, Creative New Zealand, NZ Music Commission, Dunedin City Council, Recorded Music New Zealand, Sargood Bequest, APRA, University of Otago's School of Performing Arts, Radio One, Music Planet, and Waitati Music Festival.
