Bunker Down

WATCH: Gladstone stars in music video

JOSH Arnold's Bunker Down music video has gone live - and you can watch it right here.

The video is full of recognisable people and places, having been filmed on location at Tannum Sands, Miriam Vale, Baffle Creek, Agnes Water and East Shores.

Local musicians including singer-songwriter Ben Lanzon and vocalists Jessica Rose and Lucia Coleiro share the spotlight with students from 18 schools across the region.

Small Town Culture founder Josh Arnold, the creative force behind the video, said there was an enormous amount of talent in the Gladstone Region.

"You will hear (it) in the video," he said.

"I was also extremely impressed with the songwriting abilities of the students from Gladstone and Toolooa State High Schools who took part in the collaborative process.

"The result is a fun video with a catchy song that gets stuck in your head, but that's a good thing, because its message is important.

The song was commissioned by Gladstone Regional Council to get people talking - and singing - about how to prepare for natural disasters like floods and cyclones.

Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said the song's main message was an important one that needed to be heard.

"If everyone prepares for severe weather, when it hours, our community will come out stronger than ever before," he said.
