TALENTED musicians Calvin Bennett and Farraday Tween’s debut single is in the running for a high school radio competition after hitting the airwaves of triple j Unearthed.

The guitar-playing songwriter from Darlington and his Currambine band mate caught the attention of music producer Noah Shilkin, the Vice President of WAM and owner of Sonic Lolly studios in Margaret River.

Calvin’s mother Elodie said they added a few more instruments and recorded Meaning of Life, their winning track in the WAM Song of the Year Under-14 category.

The best songs entered in Unearthed High are played on national radio and the competition winner will be flown to the triple j studios to record, remix or master a track.

Other recent successes include the 13-year-old duo’s triumph at the City of Joondalup Defeat the Beat 2017 competition in April and taking first place at battle of the bands event Scholarpalooza 2017.

Calvin said he was incredibly lucky to have found someone as vocally talented as Farraday, who attends Lake Joondalup Baptist College, to perform his songs.
