Gippsland’s Darcy Fox the next big thing

 Central West Gippsland headspace is thrilled for Darcy Fox, singer and songwriter from Moe, who became the first ever solo artist to take out top prize in the ‘FReeZA Push Start Battle of the Bands’ competition held at Moomba Festival in Melbourne.

Darcy wowed the music industry judges and the Moomba crowd with her infectious stage energy and engaging performance.

Central West Gippsland headspace works in conjunction with FReeZA, an innovative youth development program providing young people with the opportunity to attend music and cultural events.

The FReeZA Push Start Battle of the Bands competition showcases young musicians from around Victoria, giving them the opportunity to perform, gain local exposure, and win their way to a spot on the Push Over festival line up.

Central West Gippsland headspace Centre Manager, Sally Walker, said that with more than 350 bands competing in 74 heats, Darcy’s win with a solo performance is fantastic.

“Darcy is the first solo artist to win the competition since it began in 1994.”

“The FReeZA Push Start Battle of the Bands competition is a great way for upcoming musicians to get a foot in the door in a highly competitive music industry.”

“Central West Gippsland headspace and the FReeZA committee are very proud of what Darcy has achieved and we are looking forward to seeing more great young talent step up at the Battle of the Bands 2014.”
