We’re thrilled to announce Lior as our 2020 Music: Count Us In Mentor! One of Australia’s most successful singer-songwriters, Lior burst on to the Australian music scene in 2005 with his stunning debut album ‘Autumn Flow’ (including much loved and timeless opening track ‘This Old Love’). Since then he has amassed an incredibly diverse artistic output of albums, collaborations with orchestras and composers, and even a hugely popular children’s song Hoot’s Lullaby from ABC Kids’ television show Giggle and Hoot.
Recently awarded the Sidney Myer Creative Fellowship for “outstanding talent and exceptional courage”, we’re hugely excited to have him mentoring our young songwriting team this year in partnership with MCUI Program Ambassador John Foreman.
On being the 2020 MCUI mentor, Lior said:
“Music makes us better people. The wide ranging positive flow on effects from better music education has been proven time and time again. I’m excited about working with talented young songwriters to create this year’s program song that will be sung by hundreds of thousands of school students around Australia, and to work together with ‘Music – Count Us In’ in celebrating the power of music education.”
