Renée Gray is the Community Development Manager for Australian Start-up Six8. Six8 is a community that uses technology to bring music lovers together with music makers to create live music experiences. The landscape of music has been changing and music makers are suffering with income at a 15-year low and opportunities for emerging artists drying up.
Renée speaks of her journey of being raised in a house that restricted the types of music her family was allowed to listen to through to leading a start-up that is taking a stance in the industry to evoke positive change. Renée is passionate about creating a future where live music is normal part of our day to day lives. Through Six8 Renée is kick-starting that future by creating new and exciting opportunities for music lovers and making sure that music makers are fairly financially rewarded.
Whilst our conversation centres around the Australian Music Industry, a lot can be learned, and ideas taken away for live music anywhere. Live music has always been an important and deeply rooted part of humans and now more than ever it is crucial to support artists and their craft! Renee shares a couple of wonderful experiences of those kinds of experiences and how we all can contribute, big or small, to ensure live music is something for all to enjoy and for generations to come.
