Troy Cassar-Daley has picked up the Artist of the Year award at the National Indigenous Music Awards as well as also scoring Album of the Year for ‘Things I Carry Around’.

“Things I Carry Around” is one of the most personal things I’ve ever made and talking about my family in depth like that and my culture as well was vitally important to what the album meant,” said Troy Cassar-Daley, “I just want to say thanks to everyone who voted.”

The National Indigenous Music Awards recognised excellence across all genres of Indigenous talent. Briggs and Trails side-project A.B. Original also picked up two awards.
