We’re thrilled to announce that the wonderful Chris Blain will be the Head Judge for the following AUSACA events in 2019:

Chris has been writing, producing, managing and performing in the music industry for over fifteen years, and has a wealth of knowledge of the artistic, technical and business sides of the industry. Chris’ a cappella man-band SUADE performed for nearly twenty years, touring extensively, both locally and internationally. They produced four albums – the latest self-produced by Chris and his brother Loz.

Chris works with MusoMagic, running youth leadership and development programs throughout indigenous communities in Australia, and runs music programs for Red Dust Role Models. He’s also the musical director of “Men In Suits”, runs Melbourne’s “With One Voice” choir, and co-founded and was the co-director of Vocal Australia for three years. He’s also the director of Melbourne Singing Events, Keynotes Team Singing – ventures aimed at bringing communities together through song – and a registered Civil Marriage Celebrant to round things off!  Yes, he’ll even sing at your wedding reception!
