About This Project:

The Gold Coast is home to some of the most exciting musicians in Australia. Music writer, producer, publicist and all-around fan Zac Fahey now launches Unpacked, a new video series featuring interviews with Gold Coast musicians who have released an exceptional single over the past 12 months.

Each interview will dive deep into the inner workings of the song, deconstructing musical parts, discussing inspiration, lyrical content, recording, writing techniques and all the other unique considerations that went into the creation.

With demonstrations, acoustic performances, and breakdowns of the technical aspects of music, Zac’s new series is perfect for anyone who loves, or is curious about, the creation of music.
