Triple J’s Unearthed High is Officially Open for 2022
Triple J’s Unearthed High is back for another year of discovering the best rising Australian talent, with all the details for 2022 announced today.
Now in its 15th year, Unearthed High helps to find the finest local artists within the country’s high schools, offering them the chance to develop careers in music.
Previous winners have included such names as Teenage Joans, Gretta Ray, and George Alice, while Genesis Owusu, The Kid Laroi, and Montaigne all previously competed as finalists.
Last year, Northern Beaches outfit The Rions walked away with the top prize, with their track ‘Night Light’ going on to place number 51 on the 2021 Hottest 100. The band are about to embark on a headline East Coast tour, beginning at Brisbane’s The Brightside this Friday, June 24th, evidence that Unearthed High helps artists achieve their goals.
The winner of the 2022 edition will receive funding assistance from triple j, as well as a professional recording session for their next single. Career guidance will also be provided from an array of local musical experts.
The five other finalists won’t miss out either, with all being teamed up with a senior music manager from the Association of Artist Managers (AAM) for helpful advice in launching their musical careers.
The best Unearthed High entry from a First Nations artist will be given ongoing mentorship from the AAM, in addition to a songwriting workshop at their school provided by the APRA AMCOS Songmakers program.
Interested artists must ensure they have music added to your Unearthed profile and have ticked the box that states they’re an Unearthed High artist. Full terms and conditions and further information can be found on the official triple j website.
