High School musicians were invited to enter Vermilion High: a QUT Creative Industries future musician opportunity competition for students writing original music or who were interested in professionally recording and releasing their own original music!


Students were able to apply by sending in a demo of their original song (no covers) to receive feedback from QUT song writing and production students, and to be considered for the ultimate deal: the opportunity to utilise QUT’s world-class recording studios and have their song recorded and released by Vermilion Records.  Bands and solo artists from all genres were welcome to apply.

Faith’s very own Year 11 students, Grace Finlay, Gwen Veness and Toby Williams grabbed this opportunity with both hands, submitting an original song written by Grace, called ‘Plovers’.  Their punk band known as ‘Way Past Expiry’, were one of 13 finalists, and 1 of 3 winners!

Their success allowed them the opportunity to perform live at the La Boite Theatre and to professionally produce and record their first single, soon to be released on Spotify, with Grace performing backing drums, guitar, and vocals, with Toby on base guitar and Gwen on vocals.

The band said the whole experience has been great and the night was a lot of fun!  Grace plans to pursue her passion in music by continuing to write and play drums.  Toby and Gwen plan to pursue university after school while still incorporating music into their lives.

Congratulations to the Year 11 students on this fantastic achievement!
