Tamworth to the world
Tamworth Regional Council has announced that Tamworth – Country Music Capital, now has its own music channel and will broadcast to the world.
Tamworth TV is launched and will provide the opportunity for independent country music performers to reach new fans all over the world.
Tamworth TV provides a unique global platform not only for artists but also for the location, with Tamworth, cementing its place as centre of the country music universe.
Tamworth Regional Council Country Music Manager Barry Harley is ecstatic that the country music community has come together and been able to create this fantastic opportunity.
“Tamworth is well known in Australia as the Country Music Capital and now, slowly but surely, we are making further inroads to promote this great region on the world stage.
“Council will produce and upload a fortnightly video clip showcasing local and touring country-music talent which will be streamed worldwide,” he said.
“Our producers will secure the best local talent, and the best artists touring, tape them performing a single song live in our studios and post the performance online to be enjoyed by a worldwide audience.”
2018 Female Artist of the Year Golden Guitar winner Aleyce Simmonds will host Tamworth TV and is excited for the opportunity.
“This is such a unique initiative, particularly for emerging artists who are trying to get a foot in the door,” Aleyce said. “I’m excited to introduce and interview a new artist each fortnight and show the world what Tamworth and the country music scene has to offer.”
“It was so much fun filming the pilot and we are over the moon that we’ve been able to facilitate the launch of Tamworth TV and assist in promoting our country music artists,” Aleyce said.
The pilot episode is now available to view by visiting www.tamworthtv.com.au, @TamworthTVonline on Facebook or @TamworthTV on Instagram. Artists looking to be included on the channel can contact us via our website.
The initiative is supported by Tamworth Regional Council, Digikat, Enrec Studios, Plush Hair Design and The Same Tune.
