How lucky are we?
On the 3rd of May, my son, Dean Brady and myself, performed with Cookin’ On 3 Burners, Kylie Aulist, Didirri and Tasman Keith.
APRA AMCOS announced the nominees for the 2022 APRA Music Awards – the annual marquee event that recognises the achievements of its songwriter and publisher members. And what a list it is! Led by The Kid LAROI with four nods, closely followed by Vance Joy with three (Most Performed Australian Work, Most Performed Alternative Work for Missing Piece and Most Performed Pop Work as a co-writer on You with Benny Blanco and Marshmello), the roll call features songwriters spanning Pop, Rock, Country, R&B, Hip Hop, Rap, Soul, Blues & Roots, and Dance genres.
The Peer-Voted APRA Song of the Year cohort saw Rob Hirst on the list for the second year in a row. This year Rob won with co-writer Tasman Keith for the uncompromising First Nation from Midnight Oil’s The Makarrata Project.
This is us on stage at the APRA Awards 2022 performing the Midnight oil song, First Nation. Hope you enjoy our performance here for you to see.
