More Info

Turtle Juice Records is the latest project from Kendall Layt after realising a significant lack of representation of queer artists and the work they create in the music industry. This label is the first of its kind in Queensland and a hugely innovative project for the local and national industry. Turtle Juice Records has been a huge work-in-progress for the last 18 months and launched as part of MELT: Festival of Queer Arts and Culture earlier this year at the Brisbane Powerhouse.

Turtle Juice Records is run by Kendall Layt alongside an expanding dream team of artists, working for and among the queer community.
