ABC set to rock Sunday nights with THE SOUND

The six-part series celebrates the movers and shakers across the Australian music industry, shining a light on some of our country’s finest musicians and songwriters, with exclusive pre-recorded live performances, collaborations and artist interviews. 

Created by Mushroom Vision, each week The Sound hosts – music aficionado Jane Gazzo (triple j, Recovery) and Double J’s Zan Rowe, will be joined by a special co-host as they talk music news and introduce a terrific line-up of performances from around the country.  Each week regular segments including; From the Vault will highlight historical music clips; Tribute will see today’s artists collaborating on iconic Aussie tracks; while Introducing will showcase performances from Australia’s hottest new talent.   

ABC Head of Music Chris Scaddan says

“As COVID-19 restrictions continue and the Australian music industry works to get back on its feet, we’re very happy to be working alongside the passionate team at Mushroom Vision on The Sound.   Australian music needs to be heard and Australian artists have never stepped back from their creativity. The Sound  enhances the ABC’s unrivalled support for Australian music in 2020, via our radio networks, video segments, TV programs, live concert streams and digital content.”

Michael Gudinski from Mushroom Vision says

“The Sound will feature artists from all walks of our incredible local industry, with more than two-thirds of each episode focused on showcasing new songs.  I’m thrilled the ABC, the home of iconic music programs like Countdown, Recovery and rage, have partnered with us to support local music in such difficult times.”

Sunday’s premiere episode sees music lover and acting great, Bryan Brown co-host alongside Jane and Zan.  With performances from artists including;  Mark Seymour and the Undertow, Kate Ceberano, Steve Kilbey, Sean Sennett, Eskimo Joe, DMA’s, BENEE, Lime Cordiale and a very special exclusive preview performance by Nick Cave.  The Sound  will be the show to watch for an exciting dose of fresh new music.
