WAMI nominations

The Western Australian Music Industry nominations for this year have been announced. Living on the other side of the world means that I have kind of lost touch with my local home music scene, but not so much that I didn’t know who the nominees were!

Sugar Army seemed to have scooped most of the nominations, with eight including Most Popular Live Act and Best Rock Act. I’m not too surprised at that because they were already taking off before I left the country.

Karnivool and Birds of Tokyo have received nominations once again and they seem to be a popular favourite most years. Eskimo Joe, John Butler, Sugar Army and Karnivool are all to go head-to-head for the Most Popular Album gong and it should be interesting to see who wins that one.

It’s pretty awesome to celebrate how much talent WA has. Each year there are so many great bands up for nominations and from a state that only has two million people, it shows just how talented out music scene is. To be honest, I miss it, and I live in London!
