Welcome to our staff playlist! 

STAFF PICKS is a playlist of the best new and new-ish Australian and NZ music curated by one APRA AMCOS staff member each fortnight.

Follow us on Spotify and Apple Music.

It's our seventh iteration of STAFF PICKS and this week we've enlisted the help of Jessie Ryan-Allen, Share Pictures Registrations Officer.

Get to know Jessie a bit better below, while you listen to her top picks.


Describe your role at APRA AMCOS in one sentence:
I add and amend ownership details to works that have publisher registrations with performing and/or mechanical royalties attached, along with researching unclaimed shares.

What is your favourite song on your playlist and why?
Hurricane by Inigo - going into summer I can't think of a better song to have on repeat as the sun sets, oh and the drum fills are stellar. An honourable mention goes to Public Fish by CAKES, as this track is only up on Bandcamp at the moment I couldn't include it in the playlist but I absolutely love it!

What’s the last gig you went to?
Olga Solar at The Hideaway Bar for the King Street Crawl.

What’s the first gig you went to?
Missy Higgins at the Lake Kawana Community Centre on her 'On A Clear Night' tour.

My favourite music memory is…
Performing and recording music with my friends.

Final thought

My top tips for going to a music festival would be:

  • Look out for your friends and be friendly campground neighbour.
  • Be ready to explore the weird and wonderful, there are so many hidden gems that can pass you by if you running from one tent to another. 
  • Live in the moment and dance like no one is watching.
