Tamworth Camerata Graduates
Dominated The Maton Talent Search

September 2, 2004

Tamworth Camerata graduates dominated the Maton Talent Search at the 2004 National Muster at Gympie’s Amamoor State Forest last week.

Of the nine finalists five have participated and graduated from the Tamworth Camerata – Youth School Of Country Music which is held annually in July in Australia’s Country Music Capital.

The five young performers included:

Newcastle’s Julieanne Handcock was the Overall Junior Section Winner (12 to 15 years).  Julieanne was a graduate of the 2004 Tamworth Camerata and was the Overall Winner at the CCMA 12th Winter Junior Talent Quest in Tamworth during the Hats Off To Country Festival.

17 year old Shandell Tosoni (2002 Tamworth Camerata Graduate) who last month won the Under 18 Category of the NASHVILLE SONG SEARCH with her single HERE WITH ME co-written with Rebecca Lee Nye (2004 TCG).  Shandell is on her way to Nashville Tennessee where she will be joined by the 7 category winners who will receive mentoring sessions from highly successful songwriters and then perform their winning song In-The-Round at the famous Bluebird Café where the Overall Grand Prize Winner will be announced.

Talented Victorian guitar/vocalist Nick Kingswell is on a roll having received a call from the CMAA office that he has been accepted into the 2005 Australian College Of Country Music.  Nick won the Traditional Section and his Main Stage performance was exceptional.

Main Stage was a great opportunity for Armidale’s Brock Colley to perform his first single release GOTTA TAKE A MINUTE after winning Modern Country 1 impressing the judges.

Having recently performed with Steve Forde & The Flange and Steve Gibson on the rodeo circuit, multi-talented rodeo gal Shea Fisher from Nambour won her right to be on Main Stage in the Country Rock section.

Other entrants who entered were Victoria and Barbara Baillie, Jenna Brooks, Sarah Collett, Christie Davis, Nicholas Laing, Leah Briggs, Candice Arlott and Katrina Burgoyne who was outstanding at Writers In The Round with Nikki Gillis and Aaron Bolton as was Rebecca Lee Nye who performed alongside Billy Bridge at a number of his shows.   

Popular teenage band The Baileys starred on Main Stage and in various other venues and Aaron Bolton had his own show in The Theatre and The Legends Wine Bar finishing his Gympie sharing the stage with his good friend Col Finley.

Applications are now available for the 2005 Tamworth Camerata which will be held from Saturday, 2nd July to Thursday, 7th July.  Tamworth Camerata is open to Performers and Musicians 18 years and under wishing to pursue a career in the Country Music Industry.  For further details please contact the Tamworth Camerata office on 02 6765 4875.

The Country Music Planet
The Young Guns Of Country Music

   The Young Guns Country Music Association is an organization established in 1995 by a group of concerned individuals who observed a great need for an association dedicated to the developing and promoting of a rapidly growing segment of the country music industry that until then had been almost completely overlooked (country music performers who were 17 and under). One of the many reasons YGCMA exist is to promote country music and performers of country music that have not yet reached the age of 18.
   One of our goals is to get the young, serious dedicated performers exposure that is needed, so that they can start making an income as soon as possible in a career that often cost more than it pays in the infant stage of an artist career. Ask any parent of a minor pursuing a career in country music, and they will tell you how true this statement is.

1. A presence on the Internet on this web site. This includes us building a web page for you similar to

We will, also, upload music of yours to our server, so the whole world can hear you (two complete songs - we stream the music in real audio with 21st century technology that allows your fans to listen, but does not allow them to download the music). Your music will, also, be placed on "Inside Nashville Jukebox" located on the Internet at The cost for those who aren't members of YGCMA to be on the jukebox is $200.00, but as a member of YGCMA your music will remain there without additional cost to you.
