Project Description

October 2011 – The Burdekin Crew – ‘Fresh Ayr’

This hip hop track is an outcome from a project called ‘Song Nation’ — A collaboration between Toby Finlayson and Matthew Priestley from Desert Pea Media, The Smugglers Of Light Foundation, Vibe Australia and APRA/ AMCOS.¬†Created as part of a mentoring process with young people from Ayr State School, Ayr North QLD, the song was written as part of a unique process with Desert Pea Media and senior students.

Song Nation culminated at The Vibe Festival in Townsville, where the young people were invited to screen their clips and perform in front of over 2,000 people. Look out for other clips on this channel soon.
