Songs from the album have been played by over 100 community broadcasters across Australia. This includes WA-based ABC stations and nationally on Triple J and Double J.

Sounds of The Kimberley is a part of West Australian Music's Regional Recording Programs which will continue to visit towns and communities across the State. Applications for the next iteration, Sounds of The Mid West, are open now.
$215,000 from the Contemporary Music Fund was invested in the programs in order to support music artists and audio engineers with limited or no access to professional recording facilities to record, publish and promote original songs.
