Nominees Announced for the National Live Music Awards
YOUR 2019 NATIONAL LIVE MUSIC AWARDS NOMINEES
Congratulations to Demon Days, Jamilla, The Waifs, The Wilds, Women of Music Production (WOMPP), Jay Watson (Tame Impala), Talya Valenti (Bolt Gun, Stella Donnelly), Axel Carrington (New Talk, Peppermint Showers), Carla Geneve (x 2), Stella Donnelly (x 2), Jennifer Aslett (San Cisco, Stella Donnelly), Sara McPherson (New Talk, Trolley Boy, Ursula, Tanaya Harper) and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets all receiving nominations in the National Live Music Awards being held at events around the country on 4th December 2019.
The National Live Music Awards (NLMAs) are a broad recognition of Australia’s diverse and successful live industry, celebrating the diversity and success of the Australian live scene – recognising the best vocal talents and musicians alongside the best venues, events and festivals. The awards contain both national and state focused categories, voted on by the live industry (including fellow musicians, media, venues, bookers), with select public voted categories. The national awards will be revealed at a gala event, while the State and Territory awards will be revealed at satellite events in their respective capital cities.
The awards fill a gap in Australia, which does not have an entire awards show dedicated to contemporary live music. Considering live performance is now the most significant revenue stream for many Australian artists, and with the contemporary live music industry worth billions, this is a side of the industry that we believe deserves the focus, just as recorded sales, songwriting credits and radio play do in other award shows around the country.
The WA Awards, hosted by Jacob Diamond, will be returning to Fremantle’s. The night, running from 6pm to 9pm, will include performances from Lucy Peach, Your Girl Pho and The Wilds. Tickets and further details are available now at nlmas.oztix.com.au.
