The BUSking Project

The RYSS BUSking Project is finally here!! We have big plans to help young people across the Central Coast to capture and share their voices and musical talents with the World! Young musicians aged 12-25 from the Central Coast region can submit a video or recording of a song. It could be a cover or original music; you could be a solo artist or a group act. We would like to share the videos across multiple web and social platforms giving our region’s young musical talent the exposure it deserves. Read more
