triple j announces this year’s cohort of Unearthed High finalists

After a two month search and 1700 entries, triple j have settle on this years finalists for the annual Unearthed High competition.
triple j Unearthed Music Director Dave Ruby Howe says: “In this year’s cohort we’ve seen the continued rise of self-reliant solo artists and the influence of modern giants such as Rex Orange County, Billie Eilish, as well as alumni like The Kid LAROI and Hockey Dad. But the thing that’s struck me most this year is the creativity and resolve of young Australian musicians.
They’ve braved the many challenges of 2020 – a health crisis, remote learning and being isolated from friends – and turned to making great music as a way through it. While 2020 has been tough for everyone, this year’s Unearthed High class have shown that there’s plenty to look forward to.
The finalists, along with this year’s Indigenous Initiative winner, will receive ongoing mentorship from the Association of Artist Managers (AAM), as well as a songwriting workshop for their school by the APRA AMCOS Songmakers program.
This years finalists are,
Aodhan – ‘Twelve Again’ (Albion Park High School / Albion Park, NSW)

ok2222 – ‘Demons’ (Eltham College / Melbourne, VIC)
