The Cooper’s Australian Music Prize

The Cooper’s Australian Music Prize (AMP) is upon us for its 9th year with an awesome celebration planned for Australia Day (Jan 26th) at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl which will also announce the Shortlisted Aussie Albums from the existing long list.

The Australian Music Prize is an organization established to encourage, reward and promote Australian music of excellence. Each year an Australian artist or group is awarded The Amp, receiving a cash prize in recognition of the outstanding creativity they exhibited based on an original album released in that year. Each year principal partner PPCA donates $30,000 to the winning artists.

Mushroom Music is proud to see a vast array of our artist amongst the list including;

Adalita – All Day Venus
