Emerging Artist Award

The Nannup Emerging Artist 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 we choose ten entrants that perform two original songs to a supportive audience, who are also the voters. The Emerging Artist Award winner gets recording time with Lee Buddle at Crank Recording and the Recognition Award winner (selected by fellow industry peers and sponsored by Totally Sound, our fantastic sound crew) gets recording time with James Newhouse at Real2Reel. Massive thanks to our sponsors for their support and for sharing our vision.

Previous winners include Loren Kate, The Tommyhawks, Minnie Marks, Dan Howls,

The Broadbent Brothers, Jake Hatch
