Darwin calling: Alice Skye wins triple j Unearthed’s NIMA comp
She posted on Instagram after hearing the news: “!!?!?!!!! I’m being sent to perform at the NIMAs in DARWIN I’m SO HAPPY THANK YOU 😭😭😭 to follow on from past winners like @dabakerboy and @thelmaplum wow wow I’m so grateful.”
The 22-year-old follows the footsteps of previous Unearthed NIMA winners Baker Boy, Kuren, Thelma Plum and Robbie Miller.
A Wergaia and Wamba Wamba woman, Skye grew up in the Grampians in country Victoria, and her songwriting often reflects its calming mountain landscape.
Skye is currently part of a special Unearthed collab with Ziggy Ramo and Trials in which they’ll create a new song from scratch in the space of a week.
Hear what they come up with on triple j Drive.
