APRA award

June 22, 2008 by  

APRA award 2008Although the band haven’t been in the public eye much this last year, and with still no news of the album, it may be somewhat surprising, if you aren’t an Aussie, that the band just won another award.

The APRA awards (Australian Performing Right Association) are an annual ceremony recognising achievements in Australian music. This year the top awards were taken by Daniel Johns from Silverchair – he picked up two awards for the song Straight Lines (Song of the Year and Most Played Australian Work), and one for Songwriter of the Year – the third time he has won this award and the only artist in the awards history to have done so.

So back to Wolfmother, what did they win? Well it was their international success that was recognised, winning Most Played Australian Work Overseas for Woman. Which is quite a good indicator of how well received the band has been globally, perhaps more so than any other Australian band of recent times.

Congratulations, boys! Hope you are celebrating by polishing off the second album to get it ready for release.
