Beloved Brisbane songwriter Jeremy Neale was last night honoured with a plaque on the Valley Walk of Fame as part of the opening night of the newly re-vamped Valley Fiesta.
The local power-pop favourite received the plaque in recognition of his song Dancin' & Romancin', which took out Song of the Year at this year's Queensland Music Awards. The coveted spot on the Walk of Fame is the latest in a year full of milestones for the songwriter, who just returned from a 3 month stint in New York after being awarded the Grant McLennan Fellowship at the end of 2017.
The Valley Walk of Fame is a monument to some of Queensland’s best-loved musical talent; the state’s homegrown music deities enshrined in a series of bronze plaques in the Brunswick Street Mall. It's a mixed bag of megastars and indie legends, from The Bee Gees and Savage Garden to The Saints, The Go-Betweens, Regurgitator and Powderfinger.
Since 2006 a host of breakthrough Queensland acts have earned their place among these icons. Amy Shark, Violent Soho, Ball Park Music, Cub Sport and Emma Louise have all been honoured through the #ValleyWalkofFame initiative after winning the QMA Song of the Year.
