321 Sessions at Gold Sounds Music Conference

Event Published Wednesday 28 September 2022
321 Sessions at Gold Sounds Music Conference 2022

A day of in-person collaborative sessions taking place at the Gold Sounds Music Conference in Castlemaine. 321 sessions are a fantastic opportunity if you are looking to sharpen and hone your songwriting skills.

That's right: three songwriters, two hours, one song.

321 Sessions provides a no-pressure environment for songwriters to collaborate outside their usual creative zones. Successful 321 applicants will be matched in a session with two other APRA AMCOS members/artists to write in a studio space for two hours to create a new song! Lunch will also be provided.

This year we welcome Naarm/Melbourne based songwriter and musician Cash Savage to curate the 321 sessions. Cash fronts and manages Cash Savage and the Last Drinks, a critically acclaimed, internationally renowned six-piece, with strong ties to the Melbourne music scene. Successfully touring Europe multiple times to sold out crowds and a revered presence on the Victorian festival circuit. Cash grew up in a large, musical family. Her earliest performances took place on the porch of her family home in a small port town in South Gippsland.
