Tame Impala And 360 Lead 2013 APRA Music Awards Nominations

The Australasian Performing Rights Association (APRA) has just announced details of the nominees for the 2013 APRA Music Awards, which will be held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre on Monday, 17th June. The nominees represent the songwriters behind some of the most successful works of 2012.

This year Aussie hip hop has received a slew of nominations with controversial rapper Matthew Colwell (aka 360) along with co-writer Kaelyn Behr (aka Styalz Fuego) picking up four nominations in total.

Tame Impala are another artist who is well represented in the list of nominees. The band will have twice as much chance of winning Song Of The Year given their tracks Elephant and Feels Like We Only Go Backwards have both been selected.

The awards will include over 90 different songwriters selected in a range of Best Of categories which touch song of the year, breakthrough releases as well as international releases and a variety of genres including pop, dance, rock, urban and blues.

APRA will also soon announce the winner of this year’s Red Albert Award For Outstanding Services To Australian Music. In other years this award has been taken home by the likes of Jimmy Little, Roger Davies, Michael Chugg and triple j.

The ceremony will be televised on MAX a few days after the awards on Wednesday, 26th June at 8:00pm. Jonathan Biggins and Clare Bowditch will be hosting the event, with live music features taking place through out.
