First Ditto Music Presents Fed Square Live Event A Success!
December 4, 2015
Ditto Music will be hosting Live music events in partnership with Fed Square on the first Thursday of each month until March 2016. Last night was the first one and what an evening it was. There was a great crowd redezvoused in deck chairs in front of the stage, sitting amongst the afternoon sun enjoying each others company as our three music acts played to them.
Melbourne really brought the weather for our three Ditto Music artists, who performed at the live outdoor event. Providing entertainment and music for all, as well as catching the attention of passersby; stopping for a quick video or picture.
First to christen the stage was WAAPA honors graduate and Vanda & Young Finalist Jasmine Nelson. Jasmine returned to Melbourne earlier this year after living abroad working on her music and gigging at various venues around Europe. She shared stories of her aptly named tunes and charmed the crowd with songs from her debut album Hercules. We had the pleasure of working with Jasmine on her album release this year which was launched at Melbourne’s iconinc Bennett’s Lane Jazz Club.

After a short break, the brass-clad acoustic duo The Bean Project took the stage, intriguing everyone during their quick sound check. The duo had the audiences ears as Bryce tested out his French horn whilst Ben gave his guitar a few strums adding a sneak peak at his vocals. Having previously won the 2014/15 FreeZa Push Start Battle of the Bands, The Bean Project have been playing shows around Melbourne rounding the year out with their ‘Sprouts’ Tour Launch at the Wesley Anne, Friday 11th December.

Our final headlining act for the night was Anabelle Kay. Pulling a crowd instantly with her presence and voice during her vocal checks. The NSW Central Coast local enchanted the crowd with her all consuming powerful voice. Growing up in a non-musical family, Anabelle convinced her mother to enrol her in piano lessons. Her journey with music continued, moving to a remote area of Oklahoma (US). The frustration of living in a town so isolated led her to pick up a guitar and begin writing music using her piano know-how.
The resultis her self-titles EP, a seven track exploration and celebration of Anabelle’s musical journey to date. It was amazing to watch her country and folk stylings express her emotions and fill such a huge, outdoor, open space with simply her voice and guitar up there on stage.
