Having already named such major acts as Jagwar Ma, Flume and The Drones in the category of ‘Album of the Year‘, J Award judges have now shown some love for some of Australia’s lesser known acts for the Award’s Triple J Unearthed category, including Tigertown and Safia.
The award has been presented every year since 2008, celebrating exceptional unsigned and up-and-coming Australian bands and artists, who’ve gained their profile through Triple J’s Unearthed site — the station’s online portal for unsigned talent looking to get recognised — over the past year.
Readers can check out the full list of nominees, which includes rising stars Jackie Onassis and Jeremy Neale, below. The award will be presented at the J Awards ceremony in Sydney on Friday, 22nd November as part of Triple J’s Ausmusic Month celebrations.
