We’re amped that yet another local band, The Graeme Watkins Project has been invited to showcase at the MusExpo music conference in Hollywood, LA on 29 April 2012. This will be followed by an intimate performance in the renowned Pianos in New York City on 7 May 2012. On both occasions, the SAMA nominated band who shot to success with their hit singles Music Affair and Bloodshot Eyes, will be performing in front of some of the world’s leading music industry professionals.
“We are excited to be exploring opportunities beyond South African borders and look forward to taking insights out of how an international audience receives our music, which will add vast value to our creative process for our next album,” said Graeme Watkins. The band has been nominated for two South African Music Awards – “BEST ROCK ALBUM” for Corridors of The Mind along with “BEST VIDEO OF THE YEAR” for their hit single Music Affair. The SAMAs are being held on the same night as their MusExpo showcase, so unfortunately the boys won’t be partying at this year’s event, but let’s hope they catch their big break on this trip!
Leading up to their American Showcase dates, The Graeme Watkins Project has received play listing with Bloodshot Eyes and London Bridge on a number of US Stations including indie1031.com (Worldwide online radio station), KCMP in Minneapolis, KCSN in Los Angeles, KNRK in Portland, Moheak Radio in Los Angeles, WCNR in Charlottesville, WEQX in Albany, WXPN in Philadelphia, WEND in Charlotte and KTCL in Denver.
Well done GWP! We’re all for the rest of the world being exposed to some of great artists. Spread the love!
