Singer/Songwriter Archie Roach has been named to receive the 2017 Ted Albert Award for Outstanding Services To Australian Music at the APRA Music Awards to be held in Sydney on April 3.

Roach will join a long list of Australian names who have previously received the award including Paul Kelly, Jimmy Little, Slim Dusty, The Seekers, Fifa Riccobono, Lindy Morrison and Cold Chisel.

Archie Roach released his debut album ‘Charcoal Lane’ in 1990. The album featured the brutally honest and generally unspoken story ‘Took The Children Away’, the story of Australian government’s crimes against humanity.

The 2017 APRA Awards will be announced April 3 at the International Convention Centre Grand Ballroom in Sydney.
