Sycco immortalised in Valley Walk of Fame

Rising star Sycco has put her mark on Brisbane's Fortitude Valley Walk of Fame today with the official unveiling of her 2021 Queensland Music Awards Song of the Year plaque for her hit song 'Dribble'.

Coinciding with the opening of nominations for the 2022 Queensland Music Awards, artists, and industry gathered to witness the reveal of the latest Song of the Year plaque to join the ranks in Brunswick St Mall. Sycco's breakout hit 'Dribble' took home Song of the Year as well as the Pop Award at this year’s star-studded QMAs, produced by QMusic, and held in May at the wondrous Fortitude Music Hall.

Self-taught triple-threat singer/songwriter/producer, Sycco quickly climbed lineups through to her breakout year in 2020. Releasing a string of hooky choruses and shimmering psych-pop bops, 'Dribble' caught critical acclaim and racked up millions of streams, hitting the #29 spot in triple j's Hottest 100 (the highest artist for a new artist in 2020). About to embark on a national tour in support of her new EP 'Sycco's First EP', it's just the beginning for Brisbane's latest legend.

“Winning a QMA was a huge milestone for me, I did not expect to actually win at all, so there was a huge shock factor! To have that sort of support and recognition really means a lot.”

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. The Jungle Giants, Amy Shark, Violent Soho, Ball Park Music, Cub Sport, Emma Louise, and Clea have all been honoured through the #ValleyWalkofFame initiative after winning the QMA Song of the Year. Winners of the previously awarded Published Song of the Year (2006-2010) are also represented amongst the greats.
