"SERIOUS LEAD VOCALIST WANTED FOR COMMERCIAL MUSICAL OUTFIT PRESENTLY FINANCED BY MAJOR PUBLISHING COMPANY"
Producer / multi-instrumentalist Daniel Jones places an advertisement in the local “Time Off” paper in Brisbane, Australia, looking for a vocalist for a band called Red Edge. Budding singer-songwriter Darren Hayes answers the ad, and after one audition they decide to work together
‘I remember going into the audition and I was scared out of my brains. I was the last person and had no experience – I was just a kid who'd sung in school musicals. I sang for them and everything changed – there was a magic in the room. I knew that everything was going to change forever – and boy did it!’
Darren quote from Time Off Music Site, Brisbane
