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 @ 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 @ Real2Reel. Massive thanks to our sponsors for their support and for sharing our passion.
The 2018 entrants are:
Jack Davies and the Bush Chooks
Jasper Jones and Friends
Two Dollar Dog
Wayward Johnson and the Adjustment
