Find your new favourite tune with this totally free online showcase of incredible talents

Need some new tunes in your life? Well jump online and listen in to the fourth annual Earshift Music Festival. Streaming live at 8pm from the Sydney Improvised Music Association (SIMA) website and their Facebook and YouTube pages from October 1-10, the ten-day fest presents a cool new star every night. It's totally free, and Earshift Music artistic director Jeremy Rose will have a chat with each performer following their set, so you can find out a bit more about who they are and what they do.

The line-up includes folks like Sydney-based, Seoul-born jazz drummer Chloe Kim, who draws on her Korean heritage, Melbourne-based saxophonist Flora Carbo, larrikin Taswegian trumpet player Scott Tinkler, and experimental-folk duo Meatshell aka Helen Svoboda and Andrew Saragossi.

“If there’s a silver lining of the pandemic, it has been that we are even more driven to find new avenues of connecting with audiences and championing creative music,” Rose says. “This festival is a great opportunity for us to make the most of our current situation.”

Super cool? You can find more must-do online arts stuff here.
