At Music Love, we endeavour to place a big bright spotlight on women from all over the music industry in Australia. Actually, over the past six months since our launch on 2 November, we have profiled just over 100 women in music. And it would seem, that our audience and those beyond, cannot get enough. So we decided it was time to hold an event where we can all come together in the same room and hear from women who have incredible careers and stories. It is with this in mind, that we are working with Vivid Sydney 2017 to have an event at Vivid Ideas! on June 10, from 9-11am at the gorgeous Museum of Sydney in the Rocks, Music Love will present a panel discussion called The Pathway to the Platform

Gretta Ray: The songstress who won two major music competitions in 2016, is on her way to Nashville. And we can't wait to hear the new music that follows

The musical complexities found in Gretta Ray's singles Drive and Unwind, along with four tracks from her debut EP Elsewhere are striking and the mark of an intelligent, thoughtful musician.Despite the accolade and major invitations to perform which ensued from the wins, Gretta continued to stay dedicated to her VCE studies, knowing that all of her education including non-musical subjects, would be beneficial to her craft. A more thoughtful, grounded, focussed, and dedicated musician would be hard to find, and after a summer in Australia, Gretta is on her way to Nashville to begin to produce her next project. Gretta Ray speaks with Music Love about that tremendous winter's triple j day, her new music video, and offers some advice for high school students who want a career in music.

Danielle McGrane has a pretty fun life.

Yet amidst the glitz, glamour and sparkly celebrities, Danielle remains transfixed on the Australian music scene.

Abbe May says we should listen to Hayley Couper. Abbe May is right! Meet the dreamy pop rocker from Tasmania

Go digging for music by Hayley Couper and you will come up with just two songs. The guitars, the drum mix, the voice, the soul and the pure gritty grain is reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac, PJ Harvey and Florence Welch. Heartbeats was released in 2012 on triple j's Unearthed and received rave reviews. It's been a long time between drinks and her latest release Caught Up came out in December last year. And it is a truly great track. More music is coming soon, thankfully, and the pop-rocker has just released a music video for Caught Up. Hayley has been around for a while, winning a spot on the Falls Festival bill thanks to triple j Unearthed, and playing more festivals and gigs and featuring here and there. Abbe May loves her. Hayley took some time to chat to Music Love about her plans for 2017, life in Tasmania and how Fleetwood Mac is her religion.

Asta: It's important girls feel like they can be who they want without the pressure of looking or sounding a certain way

Asta Evelyn Binnie-Ireland was born in a tiny town in Tasmania called Cygnet which last reported a population of 839 people. In 2015, Asta told the Sydney Morning Herald that she grew up in a "small hippie country town", where she was either painting in the nude or parading around in elaborate costumes. Her passion for art, performance and costumes never faded, and at 17 Asta won triple j's Unearthed High competition. From there, the indie-pop artist went on to support Ellie Goulding on her Australian tour in 2016. Today, at 22, Asta is preparing to headline her own Australian tour, after releasing a funky tune called Shine late last year. The tour of the same name kicks off in February, along with her debut EP. Despite being a regular on the festival circuit as well as the aforementioned support slot for Ellie Goulding, and five years in the spotlight, Asta has only released a handful of singles. (A track that particularly stands out is a ballad called Wild Emotion - make sure you listen to the acoustic version. Scroll down for the video). Her fans are understandably pining for a solid collection of songs, and if Shine is anything to go by, the new EP will have been worth the wait. Asta feels as though she’s finally found her sound and sat down with Music Love to talk about her tour and EP, and what it was like to follow Ellie Goulding around Australia.
