ARIA Awards 2007

The 2007 Australian Record Industry Association awards were held last night, which are always great. I’m always impressed with the diversity of music produced by Australian artists and the 2007 ARIA awards night really highlighted that fact with acts like:

  • Silverchair
  • Operator Please
  • Damien Leith
  • Sarah Blasko
  • Sneaky Sound System
  • Hilltop Hoods
  • John Butler Trio
  • Gotye
  • Kate Miller-Heidke

Of interest out of that list where Operator Please, which are a young band with an average age of 16 who won their way through via a battle of the bands. The Hilltop Hoods hail from Adelaide and offer a unique R&B sound. Gotye, largely a one man band provide electric, synthesised music blended with traditional sounds. Kate Miller-Heidke, well – she was just strange, querky and different but excellent none the less.

The highlight of the night for me though was watching John Butler Trio supported by Kieth Urban perform. While it wasn’t quite the same as a typical live performance from the John Butler Trio, there were hints of the brilliance which the audience realy appreciated.

  1. I think the Hilltop Hoods are more Hip Hop than R&B.

    I agree though that Aussie talent is diverse and strange (Kate M-H).
