Who is Suitcase Records 

 Suitcase Records the first vinyl pressing plant in Brisbane in more than 30 years. We are independently owned and on a mission to support independent musicians make more magic.

We have now worked on over 130 albums from big names like Savage Garden and GFlip to local indie favourites like Full Flower Moon Band and Girl and Girl (if you don’t know either of those last 2 – do yourself a favour and take a listen. They are fabulous).

What’s in it for the Musicians?

The 10 artists who get the highest vote will be featured on our Suitcase Showcase – Year 1 compilation album.

All profits from this pressing (after manufacturing, design and recording costs) will be split 11 ways. 10 shares will go to the winning artists. The 11th share will go to Support Act a not for profit that supports musicians. 

In the event that one of our winners can’t participate, we will move to the artist with the next most popular vote.

Why are we giving a share to Support Act? 

Because we love them and it’s tough work being a musician. 

Support Act are the music industry’s charity, providing crisis relief, mental health and wellbeing support to musicians, managers, crew, music workers and organisations across all genres of music.

So we are giving a share of all profits from sales of Suitcase Showcase – Volume 1 to Support Act

What music will be on Suitcase Showcase – Year 1?

We have no idea – yet. The 10 songs will be made up of whoever gets the highest votes in our competition. By voting you’ll also get a chance to pre order and get a limited edition of the album. Stay tuned!
