Tones and I Leads Nominations for 2020 Virtual APRA Awards

Tones and I has been nominated four times for the 2020 APRA Awards and this year they’ll be virtual.

“I am so honoured to receive 4 APRA nominations. Big thank you to APRA for all the work they do for the music community. Stay safe,” Tones and I said in a statement.

With the world in lockdown, the APRA Awards will go ahead on 26 May as an online event.

“If ever there was a time to acknowledge the work of songwriters – both those on stage and those who work
quietly behind-the-scenes – it is now, which is why we have committed to the 2020 Virtual APRA Music Awards.

“Our songwriters give us so much – they contribute enormously to our economic and cultural wealth, and in a world of self-isolation, never has the comfort, poignancy, or uplift of a song been more important! The nominees provide a ready-made #AussieMade playlist of fantastic music. We look forward to celebrating their success, as part of our support of all Australian music creators. ‘See you’ on the 26th”, said APRA AMCOS Chief Executive, Dean Ormston.

Guy Sebastian is up for Song for the Year for Choir’. “I am so honoured to receive these three APRA nominations for Choir. It means so much to be to be a part of the music community and this song is all about the fellowship of music and its power. Big thanks to my partners in this song The Orphanage and M-Phazes and of course to APRA who do so much for all of us in this industry,” he said.

Baker Boy is nominated for ‘Cool As Hell’. “Cool as Hell was such a fun track to make, it was my first time collaborating with the Thundamentals guys, it was a real vibe moment in the studio and the song kind of just happened. This track really challenged me to step out of my comfort zone and lean into a bit more singing for the first time. I really didn’t expect Cool as Hell to be as popular as it has been, it still blows me away to have people singing my songs back to me, especially the Yolngu Matha lyrics, Cool as Hell is one of my favourite tracks to perform live,” he said.
