The Nannup Emerging Artists Award began with a generous bequeath from Melissa Raser, a beautiful musician who performed at Nannup and believed in the support of emerging artists. We continue this legacy as it is a strong part of what we believe in: supporting and exposing emerging artists.

Each year ten artists get selected to perform two original songs to a supportive audience. The Emerging Artists Award winners get recording time with Lee Buddle at Crank Recording and recording time with James Newhouse at Real2Reel (thanks to Totally Sound, our fantastic sound crew). Massive thanks to our sponsors for their support and for sharing our vision.

Previous winners include Karin Page, Loren Kate, The Tommyhawks, Minnie Marks, Dan Howls, The Broadbent Brothers, Jake Hatch, Jack Davies & The Bush Chooks, Farraday’s Cage, Volatus…
