Melbourne Music Week will open with a statement on 11 November with a concert called Her Sound, Her Story, featuring Julia Stone, Ella Hooper, Mama Kin, Montaigne, Mojo Juju, Ecca Vandal, Elizabeth Rose, Airling and Nyne. It’s already sold out, but if you’re in Melbourne and still want to be part of the action, get to the free photographic exhibition of the same name. 

The portrait series features over 40 of Australia’s most renowned women in music. Kate Cebrano, Renee Geyer, Clare Bowditch, Tina Arena, Missy Higgins, Julia Stone and newer artists like Vera Blue and Montaigne will all be featured at the exciting exhibition celebrating a long history of Australian women in music. 

The exhibition has taken two years to put together by Australian photographer Michelle Grace Hunder and filmmaker Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore. Claudia says, “Using different platforms, incorporating dialogue and interviews, portraiture and film, we see the project Her Sound, Her Story as a fantastic opportunity to create social change and inspire a new generation of women who think for themselves.
