In January ‘Small Town Culture’ with the support of the University of Southern Queensland opened the door for passionate communities across the country to take part in the ‘Australian Regional Community Competition’.
With more than 100 towns in the running the small town of Kilkivan near Gympie, population 690, received 3000 votes on Facebook to receive its very own Town Anthem and Music Video created by Josh Arnold and his team.
The result is this outstanding country rock song bursting with town pride and authenticity.
Small Town Culture continues to create music and film dedicated to the true identity of our heartland whilst celebrating life in the country and keeping alive the true spirit and back bone of Australia.

Also included is the haunting "Skeletons" which was featured on the US TV show "Ghost Whisperer" plus the moving "Alive" which was written for the National Drive for Life Campaign. "Galvanize" finishes with the Country and Western Rap classic "Micky Mouse and the Clubhouse Rampage" which was written and recorded in 2009 before Josh's extremely successful move to education and the emergence of "Small Town Culture".
