The Nick Balcombe Foundation was formed following the sudden passing of Nick – our much loved friend, son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and soul mate. We formed the foundation as a way to continue to celebrate his music and to support other emerging musicians to live their dreams. With all of this in mind, his friends and family are working together to develop a grant in his honour for an up-and- coming musician to go to the next level that Nick was always striving for.
‘Living the dream’ was one of Nick’s catch phrases. He lived his dream by playing music around the world, surfing when he could and living life to its fullest with family and friends. If you are a Tasmanian based musician or band that is looking to take it to the next level so you can follow your dreams, then we want to support you by offering an annual grant. We envisage that the grant will consist of a cash component, social media advice and assistance, mentoring opportunities and links within the industry.
