Sean Fitzsimons is in the top three of an online competition to support Australian rap group Bliss n Eso at a Bendigo concert in May.
A former Echuca man is calling on his old mates to help him kick-start his musical career.
Sean Fitzsimons, 25, is in the top three of an online competition to support Australian rap group Bliss n Eso at a Bendigo concert in May.
Bliss n Eso is an ARIA Award-winning Australian hip-hop band based in Sydney.
Mr Fitzsimons needs people to visit the band’s website and vote for his video submission.
Voting closes Sunday and the artist with the most likes will win the chance to be a support act to the band.
Mr Fitzsimons said he was keen for the region to get behind him.
‘‘One of the others in the competition is from Gippsland. Being so close to Bendigo, I think it would be great to have someone from Echuca up on stage,’’ he said.
Living in Melbourne, Fitzsimons said he was working hard to realise his dream of a career in music, having recently left the defence force after six years.
‘‘It was hard to work on your music while in the defence force, but now I am keen to follow my dream,’’ he said.
Mr Fitzsimons left home at 18 after his parents divorced.
He said his experiences in the defence force and his departure from home as a teenager inspire his music.
Mr Fitzsimons said he also wanted to give something back to young people in the region to help them discover their creative outlet.
‘‘I have been in touch with Echuca College about setting up a musical workshop for people who might struggle with mainstream classes,’’ he said.
