I am a big believer in the simple letter. To your parents, your siblings, an old friend, a lover, even someone you see regularly – there’s something special about penning and popping in the mail a handwritten note to a loved one. Women of Letters was a genius idea that has turned into an incredible ongoing series of heartwarming events – a tribute to the forgotten art of letter-writing, which ordinarily involves five women writing a letter to a topic (such as: “To the moment that changed my life” or “To the night I’ll never forget”).
As the nation remembers our unforgotten soldiers this ANZAC day we also celebrate some brilliant successes in Australian music. Big news for Australian artists with new signings, competitions for budding artists, and some meaty updates from across the shores.

She's one of Australia's most recognisable and respected vocalists and in May and June, Kate Miller-Heidke will be the latest artist to embark on the 'Heavenly Sounds' national tour! Set to entertain audiences in various cathedrals and churches around the country, Miller-Heidke and longtime collaborator Keir Nuttall will perform in a special intimate duo format.
This year’s Pyramid Rock Festival on Phillip Island in Victoria will be remembered by me not only as a paddock full of beer cans and flocks of seagulls. It will instead be remembered as the New Years Eve that someone threw a basketball at Dominic Simper of Tame Impala’s face. But let’s go back to the beginning, a time of sobriety and a lot less violence.
