And the 2019 J Award nominees are…

The J Awards are the pinnacle of Ausmusic Month and a chance to celebrate our homegrown artists’ originality, creativity and technical excellence. In 2019, we’re also psyched to announce a new You Done Good award, presented to someone who has made an impact on the industry through outstanding achievement, social change or altruistic endeavours. Without further ado, we give you the 2019 J Award nominees:
