Writer-Composer-Performer Declan O’Donovan Showcased in Australia

Declan O’Donovan performed several times in Sydney and at the Australian Music Week Showcase in Cronulla in November 2018.

Australia, a significant international market

Invited by the Australian Music Week Showcase and the Yukon-based Breakout West festival, which was organizing shows in Australia at the time, Declan O’Donovan introduced large audiences to his music. Australians are avid consumers of music on both digital and physical media; they’re also a major market for Canadian artists, as they are a particularly loyal audience.

An opportunity to develop new tours

In addition to taking meetings that would lead to future international collaborations, Declan O’Donovan took the opportunity to perform at events before programmers from all over the world and to consider a future tour. These new contacts will complement those he is already maintaining in Germany and Japan.
