Meet Ashlea Crane, this year’s Female Music Industry Scholarship recipient thanks to a partnership between Music SA and Moshtix. Ashlea is incredibly active within the Adelaide music scene and well on her way to carving out a successful and fulfilling music career as an industry professional.
Ashlea is currently enrolled in the CUA40915 Certificate IV in Music Industry (Business) and it’s likely that you’ve spotted her out and about – either working, volunteering or enjoying local gigs, festivals and events around Adelaide. Thanks to Moshtix, Ashlea also attended the Bigsound Music Industry Conference in Brisbane at the beginning of September. She spoke highly of this opportunity, stating “it solidified everything I’ve learnt from the course and made me feel confident that I’m well prepared for working in the music industry. The highlight of this experience was being immersed in an environment of likeminded people, all there for the same reason – which made networking really easy.”
Earlier this year, Ashlea underwent training at one of Adelaide’s beloved community radio stations, Three D Radio, and just last week hosted the first episode of her new radio show called ‘Peripheral Noise’. Tune in every Tuesday at 4pm to hear a selection of local and touring talent, curated by Ashlea.
As well as this, Ashlea has developed a keen interest in Artist Management and begun working with local bands. She is currently managing heavy act, The Straight Jacket Tailors and co-managing alternative artist, Attonbitus. Ashlea also runs Art & Mental Health AU, an online platform which provides stories and resources with the aim to minimise stigma and create a safe space for those in the arts and creative industries.

And if all that isn’t enough to keep her busy, Ashlea is also the mother of a four year old. She prides herself on her ability to be an active member of the music community while also being a dedicated mother and is transparent about the joys and struggles that come along with this, with the hope to inspire other young women.
