Former TAP student shoots for the stars

Former TAP student shoots for the stars Yet another former Canterbury-Bankstown Talent Advancement Program (TAP) graduate is preparing to make her mark on the Aussie music scene. Yes  

Yet another former Canterbury-Bankstown Talent Advancement Program (TAP) graduate is preparing to make her mark on the Aussie music scene.

Heather Riley, who is the lead singer of the band Cry Club, is preparing to release the band’s first single, Walk Away, on 3 July, on iTunes, Spotify, SoundCloud and Bandcamp.

The pop punk band will follow-up that release with a performance at Wollongong’s Yours and Owls Festival, playing alongside the likes of Angus & Julia Stone, Peking Duk and Alison Wonderland.

The 23-year-old from Milperra, who grew up in Revesby, joined TAP in 2007, where she remained until 2012.

"I owe everything to TAP," she said. "When people see us perform, they say ‘you’re so entertaining to watch’. I tell them I learnt everything I know from TAP. The teachers really know what they’re talking about and it was drilled into me from the beginning how to put on a great show."

Since their formation in January, Cry Club has played a number of shows at venues across Sydney. But, Riley said, the Yours and Owls Festival would be the highlight of the band’s young career.

"I’m so pumped to perform there. To be on the same bill as artists like Alison Wonderland, it’s just phenomenal," she said.

Mayor, Khal Asfour, said the TAP is in its 17th year and has moulded some of the country’s best musical talents, including Casey Donovan, Adam Rennie and Joel Taylor.

"It’s great to see that trend continuing with Heather and I look forward to seeing more great artists develop through the program."
