The SongCraft event series is a fascinating discussion and insight into the process of songwriting. Join us for our SongCraft panel at Gold Sounds Music Conference, featuring some fantastic and acclaimed songwriters; Jonnine Standish (HTRK), Raquel Solier (Mod Con/Various Asses) and Dallas Woods. The sessions will be facilitated by Annaliese Redlich (Neon Sunset RRR, Imperial Leather). You will need a ticket to the Gold Sounds Music Conference to attend this event.
Artist Jonnine Standish’s solo work both dilates and deconstructs the damaged, sensual minimalism of her iconic, decade-plus collaboration alongside Nigel Yang in HTRK. Skeletal rhythms slink and echo through dimly lit streets framed by fragments of guitar, bass, breath, keys, scrapes, and haze, anchored by Standish’s narcotic, nocturnal voice. Supernatural, her 2019 EP is a chic suite of stripped, spectral dub, and 2020’s Blue Hills, ventures even further including, haunted assemblages of memory and melody.
Raquel Solier aka Various Asses, is a producer of abstract bass music, as well as the drummer in MOD CON. As Various Asses she is a master at creating powerful, build up-driven bass music, performing frequently along the east coast of Australia since 2015. Various Asses' disrupted dancefloor forms are instantly recognisable, the raw power and menacing charm secured her recognition as one of the most important abstract bass music artists of the last decade.
In the five years he's been releasing music, Dallas Woods has used his songwriting as a powerful platform to speak about his experiences in life as an Indigenous man, the justice system, racial stereotyping and his own personal struggles. He has sold out shows across the country, appearing at Bluesfest, Groovin' The Moo and supporting the enigmatic Sampa The Great and Baker Boy. Dallas has reached 1m + streams on 'Heaven of My Own' and his viral earworm 'If It Glitters It's Gold.'
