10 tracks. Fan voted. Independent music. All profits to the artists and Support Act

Suitcase Showcase is back for 2024!

Suitcase Records is Australia’s newest vinyl pressing plant. Suitcase Showcase is an annual event and our way of supporting Australian Independent music.

Each year we create a compilation album 100% chosen by Australian music fans. 

Entry is open to all independent artists who have pressed with us this year and fans get to choose which 10 songs make the cut. 

All proceeds from sales of the vinyl will be split between both the 10 winning artists and music industry support legends Support Act. Not only that - voters will go into the running to win one of our fabulous prize packs!

The album will be pressed on our low carbon orange with a gatefold jacket. 

Suitcase Showcase Vol 2 is our annual compilation album of Australian music and is this year sponsored by Audio Technica and Heaps Normal.

 The artists whose music we feature will split the profits between them with a share also going to Support Act.

And by voting, you will go in the draw to win!

    Ashgroove

    From a high school battle of the bands to selling out some of Queensland's most iconic venues, one question has always perplexed Ashgroove: ‘so what kind of music do you play?’ On the surface, this shouldn’t be a difficult question to answer, but Ashgroove’s sound is one that is tough to describe. From the danceable, joyous ‘Julia’, to the punchy, driving rock of ‘Dead Man’, to the ambient exploration of synthesisers in ‘B3’, to their folk-inspired turns on ‘Too Late’ and ‘Humour Me’, Ashgroove’s early years have been a true exploration of influences, to the point where no one genre can pin the group down. Isn’t that part of the fun though?
