triple j’s Unearthed High has begun

Now in its 13th year, triple j’s Unearthed High competition is back and looking to discover the next George Alice, Arno Faraji, Gretta Ray or Japanese Wallpaper.

2019 winner George Alice says Unearthed High helped kick start her career, “I didn’t expect anything at all to come from unearthed high, I honestly just wanted to be a part of it and to hopefully learn a thing or two from experience! Not only did I meet so many great people along the way, but I get to do what I’ve always wanted to do and be who I really am. It’s still sinking in a year later, but winning Unearthed High really changed my life and gave me countless opportunities to succeed.”

As well as the winner receiving top notch music industry advice from the triple j Unearthed team, triple j will help the artist record, mix or master their music, which will be played on triple j and triple j Unearthed.

In addition to being eligible for the major prize, the best Unearthed High entry from an Indigenous artist will win ongoing mentorship from the Association of Artist Managers (AAM), as well as a songwriting workshop for their school by the APRA AMCOS Songmakers program.

Last year’s Indigenous winner, Aodhan, scored a writing session with his mentor Josh Pyke, resulting in their song collaboration ‘Drive’ being played on triple j and triple j Unearthed.

From 3:30pm each Wednesday until 26th August, a new triple j Unearthed radio segment will be hosted by Unearthed High alumni.

Each show will be named after the hosting artist and will feature the best 2020 Unearthed High entries within that artists field.
