Other Pursuits

When I’m quiet on the music front, it’s because I’m doing all or one of these things below…

An occasional hourly radio show on RRR focusing on excellent and interesting lyricists. Hosted by me.

Show blurb:
Laura Imbruglia guides you through a 1 hour exploration of interesting and excellent lyricists, and the stories behind their songs.

Crossing continents, decades & genres, Laura and her nerdy musical guests will discuss what makes a good lyric and the different writing methods lyricists employ to get their story across.

Let’s Get Trivical!

let's get trivical_poster_trecs

I intermittently write and host music trivia at various venues in Melb! You can even hire me for parties and stuff. I’m very entertaining if you have a very niche sense of humour. Otherwise, I am possibly alienating.
Lols, just jokes. I am great fun for the whole family.
