The Gympie Music Muster have announced the finalists for the 2022 NAB Talent Search!

The Muster Talent Search has a history of 30 years supporting musicians and is responsible for helping launch the careers of Mark O’Shea from the duo O’Shea, sisters Brooke and Sam McClymont from The McClymonts, Drew McAlister, Ruby Gilbert and Brooke Schubert.

A few former winners are even returning this year as performers in their own right including Drew McAlister in McAlister Kemp, Ruby Gilbert, Brooke Schubert and Felicity Kircher.

Committed to the development of musicians seeking a career in the music industry, the talent search program offers prizes and provides a platform for the musicians to develop their talent, make connections and showcase their abilities in a professional setting and on a big stage.

“Although the talent search is based on a competition format, it’s about every artist showcasing themselves,” NAB Talent Search co-ordinator Michael Turner said. “We’ve seen people come second or third in talent searches and go on to have awesome careers – sometimes even bigger than the winner – simply through their talent and dedication, so we’ve arranged for every finalist to receive mentoring and distribution of their music. There will be no losers in this.”

The winner will be heading off to Nashville, USA, with mentoring and performance opportunities.
