Ross and Heskett to Appear at Songwriting Event

April 30, 2013 by  

Former Wolfmother band members Chris Ross (bass, keyboards) and Myles Heskett (drums) are scheduled to appear at an event in Sydney later this week speaking to attendees about songwriting and music.

The event has been organised by the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA), who awarded Ross and Heskett (along with frontman Andrew Stockdale) the Songwriter of the Year award at their 2007 APRA Awards ceremony, as well as the Breakthrough Songwriter Award the previous year. Dubbed Songwriter Speaks, the session is described by APRA as focused on “songwriters that not only cross boundaries but hemispheres too”.

Ross and Heskett formed Wolfmother with recently-solo Stockdale in Sydney in 2000, and co-wrote the band’s self-titled debut album released in 2005. They left the band in 2008, citing personal and musical differences, and went on to form electronic group The Slew with Kid Koala and Dynomite D. The duo are currently performing with Sarah Kelly in Good Heavens.

Full details of the event can be found here. Thanks to APRA’s Greg Morrow for the information!
