Music’s golden girl Amy Shark has become the inaugural Hall Of Fame inductee after taking out the prestigious Artist Of The Year award for the third year running at Gold Coast Music Awards (2 May).
Following another 12 months of smashing national and international success, Shark took out three of her four nominated categories, including Artist Of The Year, Live Act Of The Year and Release Of The Year for hit album, 'Love Monster'. Amy's induction into the Hall Of Fame takes place in 2020.
Gold Coast music's night of nights highlighted finalists and winners across nine categories, including rising star San Mei, who took home Breakout Artist Of The Year and the hotly contested Song Of The Year gong for her popular indie rock number, 'Wonder'.
Wolfmother keyboard player and acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, Ian Peres won the newly introduced Musician Of The Year award, while Video Of The Year was snapped up by experimental dance and music artist, YT Dingo, for his music clip 'Shipwrecked'.
Newest addition to the Gold Coast live music scene, Vinnies Dive received its own ‘Skull Murphy’ trophy for Venue Of The Year, thanks to its support and ability to cater to emerging local artists and loud rock bands.
