Joe has shared stages with acts such as Lime Cordiale, Gang Of Youths, The Preatures, JOY, The Vanns and Winterbourne. In 2021 he was nominated for an APRA Award and a Golden Guitar, as well as being listed as a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition for his song 'You + Me'.

The highlight of our night will be hearing from two of the Co-Founders of multi-award winning Wollongong based distillery Headlands Distilling Co, as they share with us their incredible entrepreneurial journey and how they’ve been able to pivot and adapt to change. From humble beginnings in 2015, with nothing more than a collective goal to produce handcrafted spirits, four UOW alumni founded Wollongong’s first distillery. Headlands has now grown into a vibrant, forward-thinking company that creates an exceptional range of spirits from high quality Australian produce, with a slew of international awards under their belt.

All proceeds from this event will go to UOW’s Transforming Futures Scholarship program, to support our students who are most in need.
