My Tunes is a brand new live acoustic series with a personal touch. Each month ​Giant Dwarf invites a prominent Australian figure to choose a musician special to them to come and perform. It could be the album that helped them through a breakup, a song that alleviated a bout of homesickness, or an artist whose passion and talent ignited their love for music altogether.
The evening will consist of a couple of exclusive live and intimate acoustic performances by the artist followed by a Q&A with the host. Not only will the audience hear about the influences and stories behind the artist’s music, but the artist will be given the opportunity to talk to the host about the specific period of time that led them to their music. ​The Q&A will be interlaced with memories shared by listeners and audience members.
The first edition of ​My Tunes ​will be taking place on ​Wednesday the 21st  October and be hosted by ​Zan Rowe ​of ​triple j​,​​ who will be chatting to P​aul Dempsey​ of​ Something for Kate​.

Something for Kate – Music Matters

10/08/2015 15:11

Check out this cool animated story about a young Paul Dempsey & Clint Hyndman as they start out forming Something For Kate out of high school. Melbourne’s Something For Kate are the latest band to take part in Music Matters Australia and New Zealand’s campaign.
The animated campaign to encourage people to think about the value of music has previously seen Nick Cave, Oh Mercy and The Rubens among other acts take part.
Usually the focus of the animation is the artist’s backstory, however Something For Kate – who kicked off their 20th anniversary tour in 2014 – decided to shift the focus to the live music and touring aspects of bands.
Created by Sydney-based illustrator and animator Jennifer Dickinson, the short animation follows the imagination of a young boy who wants to start a band.
