Last night, Queensland's finest artists were honoured at the second annual Queensland Music Awards.

Held at Brisbane’s Old Museum, the night belonged to new kids on the block Cub Scouts who picked up two awards including Song Of The Year and the Pop Award for their song ‘Do You Hear’.

Ben Salter collected the Album of The Year Award for his debut solo effort, ‘The Cat’, while Jeremy Neale picked up the Rock Award for ‘Winter Was The Time’.

The Urban Award went to Rainman for ‘The Valley’. Kate Miller-Heidke once again picked up the Courier-Mail Most Popular Female Award – voted for by the public – with Pete Murray collecting the Courier-Mail Most Popular Male Award, while The Grates were voted Most Popular Group.

DZ Deathrays picked up the Export Achievement Award and the legendary Ed Kuepper was recognized for his contribution to the industry, honoured with the Grant McLennan Lifetime Achievement Award.

Rising country music star Harmony James took out the country award, while Marialy Pacheco, who recently took out the prestigious solo pianist award at the Montreux Jazz Festival, received the Jazz Award.

The event also saw the announcement of the Arts Queensland’s $10,000 Billy Thorpe Scholarship, which this year went to newcomers Astrid and The Asteroids.
