Bustling times for musician
RISING country music star Becci Nethery shows no signs of slowing down with a swag of award nominations and gigs already lined up for this year.
Later this month, the Chillagoe songstress will perform at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, where she is a top five finalist in the APRA/ AMCOS TSA new songwriter of the year category for Your Hand Slips In To Mine.
“It’s all super exciting,” Miss Nethery said.
“We’re only a month into the year and I need a nap or a holiday.”
Miss Nethery will take part in 14 performances during the Tamworth Country Music Festival, including a benefit concert for Chloe Chappel.
Miss Nethery will perform alongside Adam Harvey and The Long and Short of It to raise funds for the three-yearold who was diagnosed with Leukaemia.
“Chloe is the most lovely little girl,” she said.
“I’m stoked to be perform- ing with those artists in a benefit concert for her.”
The future will be even busier for Miss Nethery after she finished studying her Bachelor of Music degree, where she received a High Distinction for her final recital.
“I’m waiting to get my final marks and with any luck I’m going to graduation,” she said.
“I plan to stay in Sydney and focus more on my music career and start teaching students and doing some gigs.”
While her busy schedule has prevented her from returning to the Far North, she has not forgotten home.
“It’s been a really awesome couple of years,” she said.
“I want to come back as soon as I possibly can. I miss home so much.”
