We are a social enterprise working to support and promote musicians from First Nations communities and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.

We'd love to hear from you.

Based on the NSW mid-north coast, we travel to and run our projects in some of the most remote locations in Australia.

It has boosted my confidence and made me feel I really deserve to still be here in this world. When (Grow the Music) come and do music with us it is like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, all the pain goes away…
