Your Favourite Team announces rising artists participating in biannual incubator
Brisbane music education platform Your Favourite Team has announced the winter cohort for its biannual incubator program.
Organised in partnership with GYROstream, Vinyl Moon and Muso, the incubator introduces the 10 participating artists to a range of industry contacts via one-on-one virtual sessions. One of the 10 artists will also be given a paid residency in a venue booked by Muso.
Artists taking part in the forthcoming cohort include Melbourne-based R&B vocalist HSVH, Omaha-based singer-songwriter Dryden Thomas, indie/alt-R&B artist marigolden, Ipswich folk act Paulina, and DJ/producer Tough Break.
Program organisers have invited Lauren Mikkor (Running Touch, Adult Art Club), Miranda Bovania (Ruby Waters, Allan Rayman), Nettwerk director of marketing Cory Popovich and more industry experts to engage with the emerging acts.
Your Favourite Team founder Gav Parry said the selected artists represent the complexity of the contemporary music industry.
“From artists with 50,000 followers on Instagram and Tiktok to others who have 10 monthly listeners on Spotify – all of them are searching for answers on how to grow and develop their projects,” he told TMN.
“YFT as a platform doesn’t only focus on artists who are striving to build a full time career in the industry. We’re there to support every artist no matter what their goals are.”
Previous mentors invited to take part in the incubator include Positive Feedback publicist Ella Petite, booking agent Joel Siviour and Remote Control Records publicist Georgia Cooke, among others.
