Sandgate resident and one of the 4017’s favourite musicians, Dublin Rose, has caught the attention of a major music development program.
The singer, songwriter and guitarist has been selected as a finalist in Brisbane City Council’s The QUBE Effect 2024.
Dublin said she was extremely excited to be one of the 20 finalists and hoped to use the opportunity to establish herself in the Brisbane music scene.
“I’m so grateful to be given the opportunity to showcase my music to a broader audience,” she said. “It is also such an amazing networking opportunity.
“I am also extremely excited for the live performances as I love being on stage and playing with the band.”
As part of The QUBE Effect, Dublin will have mentorship opportunities with music industry professionals and film a music video for her original song, There You Go Again.
“It’s a fun song that my band and I rock out to and I hope it will appeal to a wide audience,” she said. “It is about being lost in the daydream of young love.
“Some 4017 locals might even know this song, as I have played it at many local events and recently at the Sandgate Youth Festival.
“Soon we will be allocated a team, including a director and producer to coordinate the music video, which will be filmed in February and released in April.”
Dublin will also perform on stage with the other finalists at The QUBE Effect Live Event during Brisbane Youth Week in April.
Past winners of The QUBE Effect have gone on to achieve record deals and festival billing.
“I dream of becoming an established touring artist and recognised songwriter,” Dublin said.
“I have written over 65 completed songs, many of which I hope to record in the near future.
“I am constantly composing and love developing my craft, experimenting with different styles, chords, and instruments. I am eager to release more music and have so far had a wonderful response to my original songs, which I am grateful for.”
Residents can support Dublin by voting for her in the People’s Choice Award in mid-2024. The winners of The QUBE Effect will be announced at an awards night later in the year.
