Mojo Rising Band Comp 2017 || Semi Final #1

In the Worlds before Mojo’s,
Primal chaos reigned, Heaven sought order,
But the Phoenix can fly only when its feathers are grown.
The four worlds formed again and yet again,
As endless aeons wheeled and passed.
Time and the pure essences of Heaven,
The moistures of the Earth,
And the powers of the Sun and the Moon
All worked upon a certain rock – old as Creation,
And it magically became fertile.
That first egg was named Thought,
Tathagata Buddha, the Father Buddha,
Said, ‘With our thoughts we make the world.’
Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch,
From it then came a stone Mojo’s.
The nature of Mojo’s was irrepressible!

Mojo Rising alike to Mojo’s Bar has been built upon many real friendships with all sorts and walks within the Perth and Fremantle local music scene. All who take part in this band comp will get to know more people they ought to know, to keep music in their lives forever, as it ought to be.

Grand Final 1st prize winners will receive recording and mastering packages for a song of their choice with Dave Parkin of Blackbird Sound Studio and Simon Struthers of Forensic Audio, and this is only part of the way Mojo Rising will be connecting people! In this bag of priceless Grand Final goodies we also have a design package by Red Room (Joey K), advertising packages with RTRFM and Scenestr Magazine, as well as a 2 hour consultation with industry talent-harvester Phil Stevens.
