Get Gig Ready is shining a spotlight on creative talent in the Ryde and Lane Cove area. Each week we profile a local artist or act - hear their music, talk about their creative process and get their advice to help other local creates. 

This series is hosted by Felix Shannon on behalf of 2SER radio. It will be kicking off in February 2021. You can listen to season one here.
