In mid-August, over 20 female and non-binary rappers, producers, and vocalists descended on Studios 301 in Sydney for four days of collaborative songwriting at a special edition of the Ricochet Songs camp. As well as Sydney locals, there were artists from Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, and the Central Coast, many of them meeting for the first time. By the end of the week, they’d written some incredible tracks and forged life-long friendships.
Ricochet Songs is an initiative started by producer, songwriter, and DJ, KLP. It’s a project that focuses on bringing female, non-binary, and gender non-conforming artists together to create music and in the process strengthen their friendships and professional networks. The camp was produced, curated, and facilitated by Sally Coleman (Coda Conduct, Elefant Traks, triple j) in collaboration with KLP and was backed by community sponsors Hilltop Hoods, Thundamentals, Hermitude, Urthboy, Elefant Traks, Native Tongue, Warner Music, Dew Process, Studios 301, PPCA, Nandos, Nike, and Yulli’s Brews. Photographer Michelle Grace Hunder (Her Sound Her Story) was there to capture the action and take portraits of the participants.
