APRA Awards Nods
for QLD Pop Royalty

Two local pop juggernauts are among the nominees for the 2019 APRA Music Awards, the annual event that celebrates excellence in contemporary music and honours songwriters and music publishers that have achieved outstanding success in their fields.

Super star Gold Coast export Amy Shark is up again for Song of the Year for I Said Hi, which recently nabbed her the Singer Songwriter Award at the 2019 Queensland Music Awards.

The announcement marks Amy Shark's third consecutive nomination for the prestigious, 100% peer-voted award. The punchy, melodic lead track from her debut chart-topping album Love Monster is also up for Pop Work of the Year and Most Played Australian Work.

Shark is joined in the latter two categories by Brisbane six-piece Sheppard, nominated for their gold-selling single Coming Home.

The two Queensland acts are among fine company on the finalists list, alongside Aussie songwriting legend Paul Kelly, chart-toppers Sia and Sarah Aarons and rising stars including Ocean Alley and Baker Boy.
