The power of music is something we all feel. So many events in life need a soundtrack: a long road trip, a first dance at a wedding, a carefully chosen piece to mark a loved one’s passing.
Music makes memories.
And yet, as a professional, a career in music can be uncertain and risky. Even the most talented find themselves unable to work when illness, injury or some other problem strikes. Without an income, a setback can quickly become a crisis.
This is where Support Act steps in. Support Act is a registered charity established by the music industry to provide a safety net for music professionals facing hardship.
If you are a music professional, Support Act is here to help, because your life is music.
Real People. Real Stories.
Whilst Support Act is a charity, we prefer to think that any financial assistance we are able to give as a grant, awarded in acknowledgment of your contribution to Australian music.
“The word ‘real value’ from an organisation like Support Act doesn’t even come close to it.”
“For my whole life it was just him and I. It happened out of nowhere, his passing. Finance wasn’t something I was thinking about at all before then.”

"Will You Remember Me" A Tribute to Ted Mulry, Songwriter
'Will You Remember Me' A Tribute to Ted Mulry, Songwriter
Tony Romeril has recently launched this project on Pozible, a tribute to songwriter Ted Mulry. Tony is kindly donating 30% of the proceeds raised to charity, 10% of which will come to Support Act.
The CD will be accompanied by a 12 page booklet, with a written tribute to Ted by Glenn A Baker. The CD will contain 13 tracks and anyone who purchases a copy from this Pozible campaign will have their name included in the CD booklet as a valued contributor to the completion of this CD.
This is a fantastic project to remember a wonderful songwriter. If you would like to read more please click on the link below to visit the Pozible campaign.
