However, not everyone were winners and grinners, as we look at big winners and the not so fortunate losers at this years Awards.
Sia took out the APRA Song of the Year for her hit ‘Chandelier’ as well as Songwriter of the Year for the third time (a first in the history of the APRA Music Awards).
The return of Angus and Julia Stone last year proved to be successful, with the duo winning the Blues & Roots Work of The Year for their track ‘Heart Beats Slow’, and sisters Stonefield won Rock Work of The Year with their song ‘Love Your Deserve’.
Sheppard also were big winners, taking home Pop Work of the Year and Most Played Australian Work, for their song ‘Geronimo’.
With two song nominations for Rock Work of The Year, Dan Sultan was very unlucky no to top off his accolades with an APRA. After winning Best Rock Album at the ARIA’s late last year, Sultan was a clear favourite to take out the APRA, but unfortunately just missed out to well deserving Stonefield.
Kim Churchill is one musician who had a stellar 2014. With a new album, relentless touring, and a big slot on the annual Falls Festival bill, Churchill could have capped off his year with the Blues & Roots Work of The Year. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be for Churchill, with Angus and Julia Stone taking the win.
