Rachel Cousins was among the per­form­ers high­lighted dur­ing the New­found­land Mu­sic Show­case held as part of the Live at Heart New­found­land Global Mu­sic Busi­ness Con­fer­ence.

The in­au­gu­ral event kicked off on Wed­nes­day, Oct. 10 and ran through to the 14th.

Cousins, who lives in St. John’s with her par­ents Wayne and Hilda Cousins, who grew up in Point May, viewed the con­fer­ence is an op­por­tu­nity to open the door for her out­side of the prov­ince.

“There’s so many dif­fer­ent peo­ple here, they (or­ga­niz­ers) said that al­most every con­ti­nent is rep­re­sented here…just in this room,” she ex­plained to The South­ern Gazette. “So when you think about it, just the mas­sive amount of peo­ple that are rep­re­sent­ing the in­dus­try, there’s just so many op­por­tu­ni­ties if you talk to the right per­son you could end up trav­el­ling and play­ing your mu­sic in other places.”

Cousins was look­ing for­ward to tak­ing part in Jeff Bova’s “Un­leash Your Cre­ativ­ity” work­shop. She was also look­ing for­ward to the mu­sic.

“A whole bunch of dif­fer­ent mu­si­cians I’m ex­cited to be watch­ing and see­ing,” she said.

Other lo­cal acts per­form­ing at the show­case were John Saun­ders of Burin and Grand Bank trio Skid­der­pup.

Rachel Cousins was among the list of per­form­ers at the Marystown Ho­tel and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre on Wed­nes­day, Oct. 10.
