Specially selected expert panels voted on the best music spanning across 11 different genre categories, nominating the top five releases and acts of 2015 in each respective category. Joining Total Giovanni are electronic nominees Andras & Oscar, I’lls, Roland Tings, and Wabz, while the heavily contested country section also features acts Ben Mastwyk, Jemma & The Clifton Hillbillies, Mustered Courage and Raised By Eagles.
The award ceremony acknowledges and celebrates the exceptional quality of Australian musicians across a wide range of genres, with all nominees receiving a generous rehearsal package at Bakehouse Studios.
It wouldn’t be a music event, however, without live performances, with small sets from Marlon Williams, Courtney Barnett and Harts also taking place.
Voting is open to the public until November 6, with the winners announced on November 11. For more information visit www.170russell.com.
