This musician turned TV show presenter has, along with a talented crew of volunteers, put his talents to good use showcasing the music artists of Gippsland on Live at Spectrum, Australias first live-streaming music TV show thats featured on Foxtel each week. Show runner, Brett Tippet, self-funded this creative project to put Gippslands musicians in the limelight, and is joined by co-producer and co-host Trent McCurdy, along with a team of passionate live-music lovers.

 

Brett Glover never leaves home without his guitar pick in hand, just in case the opportunity strikes to jam with a friend, or to smash out a tune with whoever he bumps into. When not playing his guitar and singing at live gigs himself, Bretts pretty good as the Host for Live at Spectrum, keeping the audience engaged and interviewing the musicians who appear on the show as it broadcasts live from a purpose built studio in Traralgon.

  

A spin off to this has been Bretts involvement in Live at The Bundy, a recurring gig at The Bundy Hall that he can enjoy without the added pressure of appearing as a live TV show host. The Bundy Hall is a rural community hall that was revived by a passionate group of locals in 2013 after a campaign to bring life back to the infrequently used building. It has been a huge success, with life being breathed back into the community space where now a venue for everything from yoga classes to weddings.

 

Brett has big goals and hopes for a future as a late-night talk show host. While comfortable in front of a crowd and possessing an obvious gift-of-the-gab, he also enjoys life outside the television spotlight, armed with his guitar as he supports headline artists at various gigs.

 

His one tongue-in-cheek tip to those new to Gippsland is, Dont tell too many people about how great it is.

 

Brett is inspired by the iconic American musician Dave Grohl. He's truly passionate about live music and would do it whether he was paid or not, Says Brett.

 

A typical Friday night for Brett is spent either out playing music, or staying in for a games night with his lady-friend and his three kids.

  

Brett loves his Gippsland home and although he kicks himself for not buying a block of land at Loch Sport (among other things), thinks its an all-round pretty awesome place to live life, enjoying the live music scene without having to travel too far from home.
