Regional talent to join big names

FRASER Coast musicians have been encouraged to join the ranks of big-name artists Kate Miller-Heidke, Amity Affliction, Ben Salter and Emma Louise in entering the Queensland Music Awards.

The awards are being held for only the second time this year and organisers have called for regional artists to get behind the event.

"We can't wait to see what amazing talent emerges from this year's event," QMusic executive officer Denise Foley said.

The QMAs and its predecessor QSong have also honoured legends of the Queensland music industry including The Bee Gees, Kev Carmody, Carol Lloyd and Bill Hauritz.

Categories include rock, jazz, urban and even brand new category children's songs.

Visit queenslandmusicawards.com.au to enter before nominations close on April 30.

Winners will be announced in a ceremony at The Old Museum in Brisbane on August 14.
