Bunbury music promoter and operator of Good Nights, Kelsie Miller, has expanded her involvement in the music industry by taking on the management of several South West musicians.

This move follows on from nearly 16 months of running successful pop-up, live music gigs in Bunbury.

“I have had an amazing line-up of musicians from all over Australia come through Good Nights since I started back in August 2015, and the music coming out of the South West is on par with anything out there,” Miller explained.

One of the first artists to take her opportunity for management is Margaret River’s Blue Child Collective.

Band member Dan White said a huge amount of his time was spent booking shows, contacting touring artists for support and marketing when his time could be better spent “writing, refining my live shows and focussing on innovation through collaboration”.

“I’m stoked to have Kelsie on board, not only is she a great advocate for South West music who will help further develop the Collective, but she loves doing it and we get to support her in living her passion, which is the whole idea,” White explained.

Tom Day, another musician from Margaret River said “having someone as motivated and passionate as Kelsie on your team is a step in the right direction”.

Miller is also managing bookings for a small collection of South West musicians, as well as Donnybrook’s folk favourite Latehorse, who have been a fixture on the Good Nights line-ups since the initiative began.

With the music scene in the South West growing rapidly, Miller said she would love to play a part in seeing South West-based musicians get more recognition.
