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 10 entrants that perform two original songs to a supportive audience, who are also the voters; each audience member can chose and submit their favourite act. Winners get recording time with Lee Buddle @ Sound Mine Studios and James Newhouse (Totally Sound). Previous winners include Loren Kate, The Tommyhawks, Minnie Marks, Dan Howls…


Congratulations to our 2017 Nannup Emerging Artist award winners: The Broadbent Brothers and Jake Hatch.
Thank you to our incredible recording sponsors Totally Sound (James Newhouse) and Crank Recording (Lee Buddle). Such a fantastic part of the festival and growth for the artists. Thanks all that were involved! You are all winners!
