Nova and The Experience win Marble Bar's 'Discovered' band competition!

Five finalists were selected from a large pool of hopeful entrants who submitted their sounds the annual 'Discovered' band competition at Sydney's iconic Marble Bar. From those five, one emerged a winner: indie-pop darlings Nova & the Experience.

The fan-voted group of finalists each competed in front of a panel of expert judges as a special grand finale, which was held in the gorgeous underground bar. The judges panel consisted of: Singer-songwriter Mahalia Barners; Rolling Stone Australia Editor Rod Yates; music marketing guru Chris Moss; and News Editor at themusic.com.au Scott Fitzsimmons. Award-winning broadcaster and presenter Jason 'Jabba' Davis was on-board to MC the event.

After a fantastic showcase of local talent, Nova & the Experience took home the ultimate prize - a two-month residency at Marble Bar, worth $10,000. The innovative band will now play at the venue every Wednesday night throughout April and May.
