Central Coast, Australia – 22 Mar, 2024 – The Skill Engineer Ltd. and Skilled Creative are excited to announce their collaboration on SoundSoul, an event designed to empower Central Coast youth through music, art, and culture.

Scheduled for Friday, 19th April Colongra Bay Hall, SoundSoul will feature the headline performance by Pilot Buffalo, Triple J Unearthed band from the Central Coast. This event, a part of National Youth Week, promises an afternoon of energy and excitement.

Led by young people aged 12 to 25, SoundSoul offers more than just entertainment. Youth coordinators behind the scenes will have the unique opportunity to engage in electronic music production, recording, and mixing, all while learning from industry mentors. 

Mike McCarthy, Director of Skilled Creative, emphasises the significance of reaching out to youth in isolated areas, providing them with access to valuable skills within the music industry.

“This project is about giving our youth the chance to explore their talents and passions in a supportive environment,” says McCarthy. “SoundSoul is not just a concert; it’s a platform for growth and self-discovery.”

The event, proudly drug-and-alcohol-free, will showcase a diverse lineup of talent, including Pilot Buffalo, UV Ultra Violet, and a vibrant hip-hop artist. 

In addition to the musical performances, attendees can immerse themselves in various activities such as a drumming circle, art exhibitions, and interactive games. 

SoundSoul is a collaborative effort supported by the Northern Lakes Neighbourhood Centre and numerous youth services, including the Central Coast Council, the Y, and Uniting, offering diverse resources and information.

“We’re excited to be part of such a meaningful youth event that brings together music, art, and community,” expresses McCarthy. 

SoundSoul is made possible through the generous funding provided by the NSW Government Youth Opportunities program.
