Guide to Touring Australia


    This guide was written for the NZ Music Commission by David Benge.

    David Benge started out working as campus activities co-ordinator for Victoria University doing events like Orientation week when he was a student. He moved on to perform in bands himself (D-Super) and work as the full-time manager for Fur Patrol. In 2002 David moved with the band to Australia and managed other artists, from both Australia and New Zealand.

    With a couple of like minded friends he started the company Speak n Spell, which has grown to a full service music company incorporating artist and producer management, touring, a record label and distribution company with a publishing arm –Etch n Sketch - added in 2004.

    Speak n Spell now have offices in Melbourne, Sydney and a recently added London base. David continues to work with both NZ and international artists across all aspects of their music businesses.
