Philly wins triple j Unearthed’s National Indigenous Music Award

Wednesday 23 July, 2014
22 year old rapper Philly is triple j Unearthed's National Indigenous Music Award winner.

triple j Unearthed partners with the National Indigenous Music Awards to find the best unsigned Indigenous act in the country. The competition is now in its third year.

triple j is "overwhelmed" by the outstanding Indigenous music submitted to from all over Australia, including the talented previous winners Thelma Plum and Robbie Miller.

This year’s competition took the station back to Mildura, home of the 2014 One Night Stand concert, where Philly, lives.

Influenced by hip hop’s ‘Golden Era’ and in particular the likes of Naughty by Nature, Philly AKA Phillip Murray began writing rhymes and dubbing beats from a very young age. Today, he's living and breathing it, creating positive, motivational and uplifting songs which he hopes will foster a more open-minded society by sharing Indigenous stories.

As triple j Unearthed's NIMAs winner for 2014 he will travel to Darwin to perform at this year's National Indigenous Music Awards ceremony, alongside Dan Sultan, Briggs and Jimblah, as well as have his songs played on triple j and triple j Unearthed.
