Welcome to Girl at a Rock Show!
This site began as a creative outlet for it’s founder, Jade, but has since become a collective of women around the globe. What originally began as a purely music-focussed site is expanding to include more comedy, television, movies, pop culture and entertainment as our team expands. You can meet us individually below:
writer. photographer. editor.
I began Girl at a Rock Show in 2011, and made it my full-time job in 2014. I’ve wanted to be a music journalist since I was The Sex Pistols’ tiniest fan in the mid-1980s. I would watch Molly Meldrum on Countdown and want to be like him, except I thought I was too ugly to be on telly. When I discovered Smash Hits and Rolling Stone I realised I could interview bands and write about them. I began my music journalism career in 2001, and have since written for Cleo, Girlfriend, Jmag, Hysteria Magazine, News Corp dailies and street press. I’m on staff at Music Feeds and training to be a radio announcer at Star FM. On weekends you can usually find me working at a gig or chilling with my dogs, binge-watching Netflix.
I am an unashamed supporter of Australian music (think: The Amity Affliction, British India, In Hearts Wake), an avid collector of tattoos and Batman/Joker comics. I am adept at making cosplays I never really wear because North Queensland doesn’t present a lot of opportunities to wear them, but they make good fodder for Jade to practise her photography skills on so it’s kind of a win-win.
I am a beach obsessed music lover who spends her time outdoors or searching for new musicians. When I’m not planning my next festival you’ll find me at the beach soaking up the sun and waiting for someone else to go in the water first in case there’s a shark. My favourite place is Paris… although I am bias as I am half French. However I do use this an excuse to justify my unhealthy obsession with croissants. I grew up in Port Douglas and still call it home despite having moved to Brisbane in 2012. I have a degree in Journalism and Interior Design. I love all genres of music but favourite artists include Paolo Nutini and Halsey. Fun fact… I can fire twirl.

Eight-year old Ava Jane has an old rock ‘n’ roll soul. Though she enjoys a variety of genres spanning multiple decades, she lists The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Tom Petty, and other classic rock artists among her favorites. Her current favorite song is the Johnny Cash cover of “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails. Her other interests include Minecraft, Roblox, dancing, soccer, and parkour.
I am an enthusiastic supporter of all types of music although my heart lies within the metal genre. My favourite bands are Gojira, Devin Townsend, Paramore, Creedence Clearwater Revial and everything in between!
Currently residing on the NSW Central Coast, hitting up gigs in Newcastle and Sydney. Sometimes even travelling to Melbourne for photography opportunities and always on the move somewhere exploring the world. Even going on tour with the likes of Ne Obliviscaris across the country. When I am not shooting I am working my three other jobs which includes slinging beers for Young Henry’s. Or settling down binging on movies/tv or playing Xbox/Playstation – RPG life! But the photographers pit is where my heart belongs!
