School of Music student Koebi Faumui will launch his EP Something New at ANU Kambri on Saturday 3 December!
"20-year-old Koebi, now in his second year studying jazz guitar with Greg Stott and music production with Ken Lampl at the ANU School of Music, is well and truly on his way to becoming a professional musician.
He’s brimming with excitement about the musical colleagues he’s been able to assemble for his new EP launch at ANU Kambri in early December, including Citizen Kay, Lucy Sugerman, Seanzsound, and members of the group Archie. 'These are people whose music I respect,' he says. 'It’s my dream.'
His new EP, called “Something New”, is a culmination of originals written over the past year, but he’s released a couple of teaser singles in recent months – Good People, a song with a universal message and I Know Better, which 'felt like it encompassed my life in the last couple of years'.
His efforts to make a quieter departure from the kind of sound he used to do, he suspects, may be attributed to his studies with 'awesome teachers' Greg Stott, Eric Ajaye and John Mackey.
He has produced and helped write a song about mental health with eight local rappers and produced a track with a group of indigenous year 5 students."
