About The Workshop

The Workshop began when friends from a band that had disbanded ten years earlier, got together to get the creative juices flowing again.

In the years since The Workshop has released an album “Tired and Dirty” in 2005 and an EP in 2006. These recordings feature all original material.

They play regularly at a variety of Pubs and Clubs along the beautiful Mid North Coast of NSW.

Their live performances provide an opportunity to showcase their own original material. Their inspiring originals have led to regular venues at the Manning Hotel (Taree), Lakes and Oceans (Forster residency), and the Australian Hotel (Wingham). Highlights have been supporting Jenny Morris and being chosen as featured artists at the Wingham Acoustic Festival. Other community events such as the Jeans for Genes Day and the Cancer Relay for Life have rounded out their calendar.


RECENT ACHIEVEMENTS AND PROMOTIONS


The Workshop were very pleased to be included in Sounds Like Cafe Volume #14. SoundsLikeCafe has been established with the specific purpose of distributing quality Australian music to cafes and coffee shops throughout selected areas of Australia. Each SoundsLikeCafe CD features some of Australia's most highly regarded musicians and composers as well as new releases from up and coming artists. Each track is available to hear online and previous volumes may be viewed

In January 2007 the band played 15 gigs, touring across the local area through the holiday season. This led to regular bookings on a six week rotation at 4 venues throughout the remainder of 2007.

Prior CD releases have been distributed by MGM Distribution, and copies forwarded to AMRAP and local radio stations. The radio stations have been very supportive and provide good airplay. Radio National (ABC) also gave an interview to promote the 2005 CD.

The CD‘s are for sale online at cdbaby.com. One of the most interesting things to come out of the CD baby site was contact from a Belgium radio jock requesting the CD for regular air play, and he actually has sent play lists !


The Workshop, has completied another album. All tracks are down November was release date. It is then anticipated that another Workshop single will be included on a Sounds Like Cafe compilation later in the year to coincide with this. The Workshop will time the release with a short coast tour at pubs and clubs., comprised of a circuit of venues that have helped the band in the past and always provide a good night for the punters.

In the longer term the band is aiming to focus on playing music festivals, ones that are appropriate to the band’s musical style, and reaching a broader audience. The pub scene has really become tired and dirty and the Festival scene offers a fresh future for musicians.

The Workshop are committed to growing and being part of the Australian Music Industry, and are members of Sonic Bids and of APRA.
