Sheppard, Dan Sultan, 5SOS and Sia lead 2015 APRA Music Award nominations with multiple nods!

Today, the 2015 APRA Music Award nominees were announced, with some Australian songwriters emerging as particular hot contenders, nabbing multiple nominations. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the likes of Sia and 5 Seconds of Summer jumped off the page, both with three nominations to their name, while the Brisbane pop juggernaut that has become Sheppard lead the pack at four nom's.

Chet Faker, Augie March, Hilltop Hoods and more shortlisted for the APRA Music Awards!

The nominees for the 2015 APRA Music Awards were announced today, with the Sydney event set to celebrate some of the country's best at Carriageworks in March. The shortlisted artists for the prestigious Song Of The Year Award will be whittled down to five finalists, the winner of which will be announced at the ceremony on March 24th. Hosted by Brian Nankervis again this year, the event will also be joined by APRA Music Awards Director Robert Conley, who will be curating the live peformances on the night.

the AU review's 15 Australian artists to watch in 2015

It's that time again where we look ahead to the year, rather than backwards, and move through the Australian artists we think will make it big in 2015. Now, our definition of "big" doesn't mean a Gotye size explosion - we just think that by the end of this year, all these artists will be well known around the country... some even internationally. Of course, many are well on their way there already. If you look back at our lists from 2013 and 2012, you'll see that usually we're fairly on the ball here. So pay attention! And now, in no particular order:

Violent Soho, Sia, Courtney Barnett and more nominated for 2014 Carlton Dry AIR Awards!

The nominees for the 2014 Carlton Dry Independent Music Awards have been announced, once again representing a great and diverse range of Australian musicians who have produced some standout material over the past 12 months. Alongside some of the country's best emerging artists (REMi, Kilter, DMA's), are nominations for some of Australia's established favourites, including the likes of the John Butler Trio, Sara Storer, Violent Soho and more.

the AU interview: Nicole Millar (Sydney) on new single "Taken", Splendour In The Grass and more!

2014 has seen singer-songwriter Nicole Millar go from strength to strength and whilst her collaborations with EDM heavyweights Peking Duk, Cosmo's Midnight and What So Not have reaped huge success, there is no slowing for the Sydney-sider. We caught up with the talented lady to talk about her solo music and her upcoming appearance at Splendour In The Grass.

Live Review: Art vs Science + Kilter + Nicole Millar - Oxford Art Factory (11.04.14)

Art vs Science have come full circle, performing a sold out show at the Oxford Art Factory over the weekend, a stage they've graced before way back in 2008, where it all began. The electro-house trio, or maestros of dance if you will, have become a much loved staple for a lot of Aussies, which ain't surprising considering how well their musical stylings, boundless energy and wacky sense of humour consistently translate into great live performances. The band have been on hiatus, as Jim Finn puts it, 'getting their shit together', working on a new EP titled Create/Destroy of which their current tour has kicked off in tribute of.
