Glenn spent 13 years with EMI Records right up until the take-over by Universal Music.

He also originally co-founded The Aussie BBQ with Mary Mihelakos and Johanna Greenway to help Australian acts showcase at SXSW. Since then the Aussie BBQ has grown to include showcases at music conferences all over the world.

In his time at EMI Glenn’s big discovery was Jet. He helped develop the careers of 360, Ricki Lee and Oh Mercy.

“It feels like a natural progression for me to move into this role,” said Glenn. “I’m really proud of what Mary (Mihelakos) and I have created with the Aussie BBQ and this new position allows me to work even closer on creating international opportunities for Australia’s thriving contemporary music scene.”

In other Sounds Australia developments, Alicia Kish, formerly of Ivy League Records and most recently the Sydney Festival, has also commenced this week as Associate Producer, SOUNDS AUSTRALIA – filling in for Esti Zilber while she takes maternity leave.

Dr Ianto Ware came on board recently to spearhead SOUNDS AUSTRALIA: LOCAL|LIVE operations as National Live Music Coordinator.

After four years, Millie Millgate has been promoted to Executive Producer, SOUNDS AUSTRALIA.

“I couldn’t be more excited about the respective skills and expertise that Glenn, Ianto and Alicia bring to SOUNDS AUSTRALIA and what this will mean in terms of us providing an expanded suite of services for artists and music businesses alike,” said Millie. “The growth of SOUNDS AUSTRALIA is testament to the belief and investment both government and industry has made to date and I am truly inspired by the future and the opportunities that lay ahead”.

Sounds Australia will showcase Australian acts once again at SXSW at Maggie Mae’s on Sixth Street on March 16.
