Calvin charts course

Hills Gazette - - NEWS -

HE­LENA Col­lege song­writer Calvin Ben­nett’s sin­gle with singer Far­ra­day Tween de­buted in the top 100 chart of triple j Un­earthed.

The gui­tar-player from Dar­ling­ton and his Cur­ram­bine band mate re­cently caught the at­ten­tion of mu­sic pro­ducer Noah Shilkin, vice-pres­i­dent of WAM, who helped the 13-yearold tal­ents fine-tune their sin­gle for the ra­dio sta­tion’s Un­earthed High com­pe­ti­tion.

Calvin’s mother Elodie said the teens’ track Mean­ing of Life, win­ner of the WAM Song of the Year un­der-14 cat­e­gory, did not make the fi­nal cut in the triple j com­pe­ti­tion.

“They did de­but at num­ber 15 on the over­all Un­earthed top 100 chart though, which is in­cred­i­ble be­cause the chart isn’t just for high school­ers,” she said.

The next chal­lenge for the tal­ented teens is their first al­lages Gozzy Rock band com­pe­ti­tion over the week­end.

They were se­lected out of 54 bands for the fi­nal 12 in the City of Gos­nells’ con­tem­po­rary mu­sic event for orig­i­nal mu­sic.

The young mu­si­cians are hop­ing to add to their tri­umph at the City of Joon­dalup De­feat the Beat 2017 com­pe­ti­tion in April and first place at the bat­tle of the bands event Schol­arpalooza 2017.
