Year 12 and Prep buddy program lunch
On Wednesday 2nd Aug Nick K, Tom B and Cyan C travelled to Melbourne to record at Studio 52, a music recording studio owned by Empire Records. The three-piece band known as ‘Comfort Zone’ wrote and recorded two original songs with sound engineer Trevor Carter. Trevor has more than 30 years in the industry and has played a large role in writing for, recording and signing bands and artists such as Silverchair, The Cat Empire, Delta Goodrem, Axle Whitehead, Missy Higgins and many more. Comfort Zone blew Trevor away by their style and skills and he spoke to them about their future in the industry. Their tracks form part of an album that sees East Loddon P-12 College join students from Boort and Pyramid Hill on an album funded by the Loddon Shire. This album will then make up part of the Kool Skools Project that sees schools from across the country nominated for awards in a similar format to the Aria Awards. These awards are highly sought after and are often judged by big names in the music industry such as music promoter Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum. Thanks to Mrs Merryn Arthur for accompanying the students with me on what was a very long but very rewarding day. The album is expected to arrive to schools for sale in early Term 4 (be sure to get your copy signed before they’re famous!).
