Queensland Music Awards Honours the State's Finest
The Queensland music industry and fans were out in force on Tuesday evening as the State’s finest artists were honoured at the annual Queensland Music Awards.
Held at Brisbane’s Old Museum, the night belonged to new kids on the block Cub Scouts who picked up two awards including Song of the Year and the Pop Award for their song - Do You Hear.
Brisbane’s most loved troubadour Ben Salter– collected the Album of The Year Award for his debut solo effort The Cat whilst Jeremy Neale picked up the Rock Award for Winter Was The Time.
Meanwhile, Kate Miller-Heidke once again picked up the Courier-Mail Most Popular Female Award –voted for by the public – Pete Murray collected the Courier-Mail Most Popular Male Award and The Grates were voted Most Popular Group.
Rising country music star Harmony James took out the country award, while Marialy Pacheco, who recently took out the prestigious solo pianist award at the Montreux Jazz Festival, received the Jazz Award.
International buzz band DZ Deathrays picked up the Export Achievement Award and the legendary Ed Kuepper was recognized for his contribution to the industry, honoured with the Grant McLennan Lifetime Achievement Award.
QMusic Executive Officer Denise Foley – whose organisation is behind the event – said the Awards gave much-needed recognition to Queensland’s established and emerging artists.
“These Awards are about turning the spotlight on Queensland artists making world class music, while discovering new talent from all corners of the State,” Ms Foley said.
The event also saw the announcement of the Arts Queensland’s $10,000 Billy Thorpe Scholarship which this year went to newcomers Astrid and The Asteroids.
The night ended with Ball Park Music and Velociraptor tearing up the stage for a rapturous audience, again proving Queensland’s rock credentials.
