THE joy of making someone else happy through her music is one of the big reasons Yeppoon's Amelia Kase she finds the art addictive.

"I love making music," she told Pulse on Wednesday.

"I love creating an atmosphere as well. If you can make someone happy with your music, then it's the best feeling."

Amelia laughed when she said her mother told her ever since she could talk she was putting on shows, and 20 years later she's followed that path of pursuing a career in music and performing.

And this weekend will see her and her band; Amelia and the Groove Traders perform over two days at the Sea Haven Village Festival.

"We're really excited about it," the 22-year-old said.

Audiences can expect a bit of everything from the group, who'll be doing some upbeat, high energy disco-style songs on Friday night, even throwing in a few Village People songs with the costumes to match, with Saturday taking on more of a jazz/blues and funk inspired vibe.

Only seven weeks shy of completing her Masters in creative enterprise at Mackay's CQUniversity, it will also be the first time she'll be debuting her first original song.

Her band is also made of up of fellow music students from the university.

"I'm working on some originals at the moment, I'm setting myself up to have material I can release," she said.

"My life dream is to take my music overseas."

Amelia is also in the throws of organising a tour with a Melbourne band in Europe next year.
