UPDATE: The wonderful Jacqui Louez Schoorl has been added as a panellist to our Vivid Ideas event! She is nothing short of a powerhouse. Our interview here!

Where does one start with Jacqui Louez Schrool? Firstly, she is without a doubt the loveliest and kindest person one could ever hope to meet. Ask anyone, and they will verify this claim. On to the professional stuff. Jacqui is the CEO and co-founder of Jaxsta, which is a huge music database. Jacqui is also the founder of a wonderful networking group in Sydney for women who work in the music industry - Women in Music Sydney. Before Jaxsta and Women in Music, Sydney,  Jacqui was kicking goals all over the film and music industry. Jacqui’s career spans two decades, encompassing roles in project development, physical production, post production, film distribution and marketing, for the likes of Channel 9, George Lucas and Baz Luhrmann. Jacqui took some time out of her very busy work and travel schedule to answer some preliminary questions about her life and work in music and film.

Kate Bradley and Liz Thomas were sick of hiring gear, so created a brand new musical equipment crowdsource space called Everywhere Roadie.

Being an independent musician is expensive. Often the cost of performing is equal to, or in some cases, greater than, the money you get at the end of the night. The overheads mount up. Line items like gear hire, photographers, petrol, van hire, accommodation if you are out of town, and so on and so forth. One day two musicians from Melbourne got sick and tired of breaking the bank to perform. So they came up with an idea called Everywhere Roadie, a website where you can locally and cost effectively crowdsource everything from an amp to a camera. It's so wonderfully simple, it's nothing short of genius, and it's hard to believe no one else has thought of it. Launched in June 2016, Everywhere Roadie is now being delightfully hit up by happy musicians in Australia, New Zealand, US, Canada, UK, and Ireland. Kate and Liz are headed to music festival South by Southwest as one of twenty music start ups chosen to showcase their ideas, and the two took some time before they leave for Austin, Texas to tell Music Love all about Everywhere Roadie.
