Teaming up with a number of Sydney musicians, indie electronic producer Billy Fox has unveiled new collective Common Good.
The artist-run project – which also features Sparrows, Nocturnal Tapes, Mookhi, Isy Isy, Reggie Banks, LOVER, Ross Henry and Self Tape - strives to “provide opportunities for the Sydney music community”.
The collective will see various like-minded artists come together in an open space to write, produce, perform and collaborate with one another, while “sharing ideas about the music industry at large”.
“After speaking with a number of electronic/future-soul artists based in Sydney, there seems to be a need, and a very strong interest, in a space for these artists to work together, as opposed to just separately, in their own pockets of creativity across this beautiful city of ours,” Fox said.
“Some of us are already collaborating and working together on things, and I could see this natural amalgamation of artists coming together. We’re all about creating together, supporting each other and the community, playing great parties, for the common good of us and our city.”
Common Good will also host bi-monthly gigs in Sydney, with the first confirmed for May 3 at The Vanguard in celebration of the collective and Fox’s forthcoming EP, Lung.
