Rockhampton musician gets help to push international career
ROCKHAMPTON musician Jeremy Marou has been able to take his talents to the international stage, thanks to a grant from the State Government.
Mr Marou is one of 15 Queensland artists, musicians and cultural workers who have received funding from the Palaszczuk government's Individuals Fund, to help develop and advance their careers.
Rockhampton MP Barry O'Rourke said it was wonderful for Jeremy to have the opportunity to take his musical talents to Canada.
"Last month Jeremy travelled to Canada with Thomas Busby, as hit duo Busby Marou, to further develop an international market for their music,” he said.
Mr Marou said the more than $3000 in funding he received went a long way.
"For musicians at our level this funding means everything, allowing us to share our music on an international scale,” he said.
Sixteen Queensland artists, musicians and cultural workers have shared $105,821.
