Canadian Music Week has definitely been a huge highlight for me so far this year. It was amazing to be a part of this internationally renown event held in Toronto, Canada. There are bands and artists from all over the globe performing for a week, and not only was it awesome to gig at but I also scored an interview with AU review!
You’ll hear a bit of noise in the background as they caught me hanging out at the infamous ‘Aussie BBQ’, which was held on the last day. This year there were 28 Australian artists, including You Am I and Mia Dyson, + many more all together at one venue – The Horseshoe Tavern. The buzz in the air was pretty electric and we all had a great time hanging out together. Hope you enjoy and if you ever get the chance you have to go and check it out…

I love being a part of and listen to music being played from all corners of the globe – Mumbai to Budapest to the Sunshine Coast!

Born in Gladstone, Sue-Anne’s father owns a farmat Lowmead, and the accomplished

THE FIRST thing I notice about Sue-Anne Stewart is her eyes. They are the colour of opals, in milky shades of blue and green. With her tanned skin and sun-bleached hair, she has natural good looks that would cause promoters to rub their hands with glee. Her eyes reveal more than good looks, though. They are the eyes of a soul searcher… someone driven by her heart. Born in Gladstone, Sue-Anne’s early years were spent moving up and down the Queensland coast as her stepfather followed work building roads. “I went to 13 schools growing up,” she reflects. “There were lots of things I hated about it, but when I look back on my childhood, I think I was pretty lucky, really… we went to some amazing places.”..
