The Jon Lemon Artist in Residence is offered in recognition of one of the world’s leading and most experienced live-sound engineers and aims to support South Australian song writers, producers and engineers to create new music through collaboration.
South Australian-born, Jon Lemon has worked with many world class, successful artists including Sia, Christina Aguilera, Lana Del Rey, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins and The Cure, just to name a few. When he’s not traveling the globe for his craft, he happily resides in the state’s Fleurieu Peninsula, and has a great passion for nurturing local songwriting.
Through the new program, South Australian song writers, music producers and engineers can apply to become an ‘Artist in Residence’, working in one of two brand new song writing rooms based at St Paul’s Creative Centre.
These “Songspace” rooms at St Paul’s are purpose built and uniquely designed to provide a comfortable, creative space to assist artists with developing new work.
There are two rounds of this residency program:
- Applications close 15 August 2016 for projects to begin from 12 September 2016.
- Applications close 20 January 2017 for projects to begin from 20 February 2017.
