Music Development Workshop: Ben Stewart (Slowly Slowly)
Music Tasmania has teamed up with Rock Challenge Tasmania and APRA AMCOS to run three Launceston workshops that will feature touring artists and agents.
The workshops will provide industry advice from some of the best in the business to help support your music career.
The second Music Development Workshop will feature Ben Stewart, a singer & songwriter for Melbourne band, Slowly Slowly.
Slowly Slowly have unlikely beginnings in a label machine factory in Outer Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Repurposing in the vacant front office with a makeshift home studio and ample space to skate between takes, it was here Stewart and Quayle spent countless hours laying the foundation of the band. Since then, they’ve upgraded the recording equipment, recruited two more members – Patrick Murphy (drums) and Albert Doan (guitar) – dropped their revered debut album, Chamomile and found a home on triple j.
Slowly Slowly’s heartfelt rock with a touch of emo proved to be versatile enough for the band to share stages with the likes of Citizen, Sorority Noise and Something For Kate alongside selling out their own headline shows. They’ve also appeared at Beyond the Valley and Party in the Paddock festivals.
