It’s been a huge 12 months for Queensland album releases, and our QMA Judges were given the hard task of whittling down the seemingly endless list of high-calibre records to just 5 finalists.
The 2019 Queensland Music Awards is shaping up to be one of the most memorable nights of the year, with QMusic today announcing a stellar list of finalists and live performances.
