If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the AMA Team.

I’m very pleased to announce that I am part of the recently formed Americana Music Association Australian Advisory Group. Formed by legendary producer, current AMA President and most recent guest on my podcast Mark Moffatt, the aim of the group is to strength the ties between the flourishing Americana scene in the USA and great Americana artists here in Australia - many of whom don’t even know they fall under that banner - and promote awareness of the genre down under.

I’ve been a fan and advocate of the Americana genre for years, and got to know and work with the AMA while making my documentary on Americana icon Jim Lauderdale over the past three years. It’s a terrific organisation who do brilliant work advocating for artists and sustaining a vibrant, diverse and growing musical community.

To read more about the group, and see the full list of members, read Poppy Reid's story in today's The Music Network: http://www.themusicnetwork.com/americana-music-association-launches-australian-advisory-group/

Answer
  • Question: What was your favourite part of last nights concert? I was there too :) Toby Keith Allphones Arena Sydney. - the-magic-of-delusions
  • Answer:

    It was a great gig. I’m part of the team that promoted the Toby tour, so it was a special night for all of us.

    My favourite part of the show - and most concerts where I’m professionally involved - is the moment just before the first song starts, where I can see the artist and band primed and ready to go and the audience is built up to the absolute peak of anticipation. Then the lights go up and the guitars kick in and everyone goes nuts.

    That’s a pretty nice moment for my money.
