Chloe seizes mo­ment

SINGER-SONG­WRITER ON THE RISE

Midland Reporter - - News - WHAT: WHEN: WHERE: TICK­ETS:

WRIT­ING a mo­ment into a song is a skill that comes nat­u­rally to in­die singer-song­writer Chloe Buchanan, a 20year-old tal­ent from Gooseberry Hill se­lected to per­form at an event for ‘nat­u­ral born artists’.

Buchanan will play RA­DI­ANT on Septem­ber 13 at the Rose­mount Ho­tel, an event for emerg­ing artists to be seen and heard pre­sented by the RAW net­work.

“I will write a mini song for each of the first 20 peo­ple who buy a ticket se­lect­ing me as their artist,” Buchanan said.

“The event will show­case live bands and music artists, as well as vis­ual artists, fash­ion de­sign­ers and film, so for any­one even a smidge creative, this event is not to be missed.

“The first 20 peo­ple will also re­ceive a lit­tle video of me singing their song.”

Peo­ple who buy a ticket will be asked to com­ment on what they would like their song to be about and send their ticket con­fir­ma­tion to Buchanan via www.face­book-.com/chloe­buchanan­mu­sic/.

The WAAPA con­tem­po­rary music grad­u­ate will per­form with her band, which has Rory Shep­herd on lead gui­tar, Re­gan Dale on drums and Kyle Lock­yer on bass.

music as a blend of al­ter­na­tive and in­die-pop sounds and said she used music as an out­let for raw ex­pres­sion and emo­tion.

“I’m in­spired by my ex­pe­ri­ences and reg­u­larly write about peo­ple and sit­u­a­tions in my life. I look to song­writ­ers such as Nick Mur­phy aka Chet Faker, Tracey Chap­man and Ben Howard for in­spi­ra­tion; peo­ple who I be­lieve have used music to trans­form their per­sonal jour­ney into a univer­sal story,” she said.

RAW show­case direc­tor Laura Fair­clough said the net­work show­cased about 250 new artists in Perth each year in cat­e­gories such as music, vis­ual art, fash­ion and film.

“In terms of our se­lec­tion process, artists can ei­ther sub­mit work for re­view or through our di­rec­tors ap­proach­ing and se­lect­ing the best in emerg­ing tal­ent to show­case,” she said.

Buchanan reg­u­larly gigs around Perth and will per­form solo at Beaut­fort Street Song­writ­ers Club on Au­gust 3. For de­tails, visit www.face­book. com/chloe­buchanan­mu­sic/.
