The West Australian Music Awards this year have got everyone at Listen/Hear Collective really excited! Two of our artists are nominated for awards this year, up against an exciting and dynamic competition consisting of some big names.

A huge congratulations goes out to Kynan Tan who is nominated for Experimental Act of the Year alongside Chris Cobilis, Craig McElhinney, Kučka and Decibel. Our own Mace Francis is up against Abbey Foster Falle, Graham Wood and Tal Cohen for the Jazz act of the Year nod.
