  Nesting

Nesting Preferred Press Shot

 After checking there’s no sand stuck in his guitar, Jason Mackaway can be counted upon to deliver a unique performance.

Since moving to Melbourne, Jason has progressed along an enriching path of musical development, crafting a versatile style through the fine-tuning and recording of both originals and classics. When not recording or napping in his home studio, Jason can be found busking and playing gigs around Melbourne, under the name Nesting.  More than your average solo act, Nesting is also a project that was not only spawned from collaboration but seeks to engage with like-minded lovers of creative expression.
Whether they be film-makers, photographers or graphic designers. The contributions of anyone who can help create something special have been welcomed.  He’s a casual character, but his music is an exception to this. He wants to engage with the largest audience possible, while demonstrating his talent and doing what he loves.

It should be noted that Jason also owns a single suit, which he is open to wearing for more formal events.

Our Brackets South event takes place on top beautiful Kincumba Mountain. The community built venue is a mud brick and natural timber building which sits in a bushland reserve, with panoramic views of Brisbane water and magnificent sunsets over the hills beyond. 

This venue is the birthplace of Brackets and Jam on the Central Coast and the community considers it as it's spiritual home. The Mountain itself holds a strong significance for our Aboriginal community and has been a long-standing meeting place for Central Coast people. The rock outcrop situated in front of the kiosk forms a natural pool which is said to have once been a sacred birthing place for women. The Mountain now gives birth to many new beginnings as the hub of creative community arts in the southern Central Coast region.
