Want to Join Faye Blais on Stage at The Thornbury Theatre?

Amidst Melting Pot’s presentation of Faye Blais at The Thornbury Theatre’s Velvet Room this coming Thursday, April 3rd, we’re teaming up with Faye, Genevieve Chadwick and Broni to bring you a little competition.

That’s right: we’re encouraging up-and-coming artists, either through the Melting Pot community, or externally, to upload a short video about themselves, including a snippet of one of their songs, and we’ll be giving them the opportunity to play LIVE at our event on April 3rd.

The performer that we end up picking out will have the chance to grill Faye about her international success, touring life, and any other questions they see fit, as well as receiving VIP treatment on the night and gaining some great exposure to new fans with a featured article here on the Melting Pot website.

What do you need to do? Watch this video, and then head over to www.facebook.com/meltingpotonline and upload your video! Each uploader gets 2 free tickets to the show.

What are you waiting for? See you on the 3rd!

Author Details

Josh Forner

Josh Forner is a folk/pop songwriter from Melbourne, Australia and Virginia, USA. Forner was born in Melbourne on July 2 1988, and spent the first 18 months of his life there before moving with his parents to the town of Reston in Virginia, USA. At the age of 3, Forner and his mother returned to Melbourne, where he has stayed ever since.

Josh sings of love, primarily (wow, what a shock right?), but also on his list of ‘hot topics’ are politics, famine, poverty and - of course – landscapes: the folk writer’s favourite.

He’s played with some of Melbourne’s stalwarts including Timothy Cannon, Bridget Pross, Mr Brady, Pro Rata, Gabriel Lynch & Kyle Taylor, and has contributed two of his tracks to non-profit compilation CDs in the past.

Josh’s repertoire continues to grow. He released his first album, a 10-track LP entitled ‘Leading to Nowhere’ at The Workers Club on May 28th, 2013. Forner has since returned to the studio to begin work on a 5-track solo EP to be released by the end of 2013. Following that, he has plans for album number two in 2014.
