2023 Pitches & Tea Residency Recipient: Tison Brown

PYT Fairfield proudly announces Tison Brown as our inaugural Pitches & Tea Artist-in-Residence recipient. Tison was one of ten young and emerging artists to present their pitch to an audience, walking away with the top score.

As part of his residency, Tison will focus on a new work described as a commentary on the complexities of human relationships, inspired by his own lived experiences navigating the world as ‘an incredibly lost’ young person.


Tison Brown is an actor, singer and writer from Campbelltown in Sydney’s southwest. Tison describes himself as a storyteller. He started a Bachelor of Music in 2020 and has been song-writing since he was fourteen. With musical influences like Nirvana, Arctic Monkeys, Lorde and Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tison fuses grunge and pop music to create a cathartic, modern sound.

In 2022, He joined Australian Theatre for Young People’s teaching artist team where he is developing his directing and writing skills. He was also part of the PYT Ensemble 2022. He is working to release music under the pseudonym ‘Judas’ as an independent artist.
