Ella Hooper has been named as the ambassador for the Melbourne Music Bank initiative for 2014.
The Melbourne Music Bank via the Bank of Melbourne is a platform for aspiring local musicians to break into the music industry.
“It’s so important that we encourage and celebrate our local talent, and this is exactly what this project is all about,” said Ella. “I got my big break after being discovered at a local fete in Violet Town. It led to free studio time to record and now here I am today!”
The Melbourne Music Bank is calling for local musicians and bands to submit a song inspired by Melbourne. A career-making prize is up for grabs, including two days of recording at Sing Sing Studios, a video clip by film maker Wilk, live gigs, album artwork and 500 CDs, PR and marketing advice and the chance to have their song used in a Bank of Melbourne advertising campaign.
Bank of Melbourne Chief Executive Scott Tanner said Bank of Melbourne was delighted to present Melbourne Music Bank for the second straight year.
“Melbourne is undoubtedly Australia’s arts and culture capital. Bank of Melbourne is delighted to help celebrate and support local music talent with this exciting program.”
