Discover Queensland's best & brightest new musical talent
In spring and autumn Queensland Conservatorium and Queensland Performing Arts Centre usually combine to spread some of Brisbane's brightest up-and-coming jazz musical talent around with their highly popular Green Jam Sessions at QPAC's Melbourne Green. Well, now you can warm up your winter and spring Friday nights with The Seed Project, showcasing a broad range of popular music.

Every Friday night from 9 August to 11 October The Seed Project will present live original music from some of Brisbane's best new musical talent and it's all free. All the artists are from the Queensland Conservatorium's Bachelor of Popular Music program, which has been the launching pad for the careers of now-established artists such as Wolfmother and Nine Sons of Dan. So, while you're enjoying the added extras of cosy fires, warming comfort food and a hot or cold tipple or two, you may be listening to an unearthed gem or the 'next big thing' on the Australian music scene.

Bring your friends and winter woollies along to celebrate the end of the working week and the joys of popular music the way it's meant to be - raw, energetic and fun. A diverse range of popular musical genres will be represented in the talented line-ups, including funk and folk, heavy metal and hip-hop, rock and pop.

Each week from 5pm to 8pm you can enjoy a musical smorgasbord, featuring a number of acts who will perform sets ranging from 25 to 50 minutes. The line-up for the first event (Friday, 9 August) has already been announced and features GOVS, Marcus Blacke, Timber Bones, Electrik Lemonade, and Sneeky Picnic.

In 2012 Seed produced a compilation album (Seed Volume 1) featuring last year's Seed musicians such as Kid Marvel, Caligula's Horse and Josh Lovegrove. View the teaser below.

It is available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. You can read all about it here. Following the success of that project Seed Volume 2, featuring this year's artists, will be released in August.
