On 24 February 2016, Melbourne photographer Zo Gay, better known as Zo Damage, embarked on an adventure like no other as she explored and documented a calendar year of live music and music culture with her 365 Day Live Music Photography Project

The Zo Damage 365 Day Project is now being released in a book titled The Damage Report.

The Damage Report is a stunning document of historical significance from the perspective of the live music scene. It offers a unique perspective and insight into this vital creative hub. 

The Damage Report combines the photography from each day of Zo's 365 Day Project, along with quotes and short stories written for the book by featured artists, venue owners and other key music scene figures, as well as by Zo herself.

As 2016 was a leap year Zo photographed each of the 366 days, successfully completing her project on 24 February 2017.

Young Henrys

Young Henrys was officially born in 2012 after a long search for a permanent home. Finally, nestled in a back street of Newtown, we became integrated with our local community, which is comprised of musicians, artists, environmentalists, hospitality professionals, activists and free spirits from all walks of life. As a result of this diverse nature of our location and the relationships that stemmed from it, the Young Henrys brand has become synonymous with the world of music and the creative arts.

By keeping things local, reducing environmental impact, and collaborating with like-minded, passionate, creative people, Young Henrys helps turn up the volume on diverse (sometime smaller) voices in our community.

Goatsound

Originally, Goatsound was simply a convenient title given to anywhere a recording or mixing session happened with owner/engineer Jason PC. From these humble beginnings Goatsound has gradually grown into the multiroom recording and rehearsal facility it is today. At Goatsound, we have been producing quality recordings with a minimum of fuss at competitive rates for over 10 years, specialising in underground and independent recording artists from all over the world. In 2016 the studio launched its own label withGoatsound Records.
