KIAN is Unearthed on triple j

Castlemaine Secondary College students got a big surprise this morning when triple j Breakfast hosts Ben & Liam snuck into the school with confetti cannons and some big news.
Masquerading as fire fighters responding to an alarm, Ben & Liam pulled up in a big red truck to surprise 16-year-old KIAN with the news that he won triple j’s 2018 Unearthed High with his track Waiting.
triple j Unearthed Music Director Dave Ruby Howe says “It’s a near impossible task to separate the five finalists in 2018’s Unearthed High, all of whom would make worthy recipients of the crown.”
The other finalists this year were Burnout, Nancie Schipper, The Kid Laroi and yergurl.
Howe says “In the end though, KIAN stood out the strongest this year, emerging as one of the most promising voices in the country – high school aged and otherwise.”
 As part of his prize, KIAN will now be flown to triple j to record, mix or master his music.
KIAN will also hook up with a musical mentor and he’ll find out who that is with Veronica & Lewis after 3pm today on triple j.
