The countdown is on, with just seven weeks to the 2017 ARIA Awards with Apple Music. Today, at the nominations event held earlier this morning at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, ARIA announced nominees in all categories and will be revealing the winners at The Star Event Centre, Sydney on Tuesday 28th November 2017, which will be broadcast around Australia on the Nine Network.

Highlights of the ceremony included 1997 ARIA Hall of Fame inductee, Paul Kelly winning two Artisan ARIA Awards for Engineer Of The Year and Best Cover Art, along with receiving seven nominations. His album “Life Is Fine” debuted at #1 on the ARIA charts, and has held its spot in the Top 10 for the last seven weeks. Currently on tour in the US and Europe, “Life Is Fine” marks his first #1 ARIA album, after releasing 23 studio albums and a 40-year career in Australian music.

It was also an exciting day for Sydney five-piece Gang Of Youths leading the day with eight nominations, categories including Apple Music Album Of The Year, Best Group, Best Rock Album, Best Video, Best Australian Live Act, Producer Of The Year, Engineer Of The Year and Best Cover Art. Acknowledging their critically acclaimed #1 ARIA album “Go Farther In Lightness”, the 16 track odyssey was named triple j’s feature album and saw the band tour nationally to sold-out audiences, along with receiving rave reviews from fans and media alike.

Other widely recognised nominations were celebrated for Australian hip hop pair, A.B Original, nominated for six nominations. Respectively coming from the Yorta Yorta and Ngarrindjeri tribes, the duo made up of Briggs and ARIA award-winning producer Trials have been bringing attention to issues closer to home. 2016’s “Reclaim Australia” saw the duo win the 12th Australian Music Prize and the album’s lead single ‘January 26’ reach #16 on triple j’s Hottest 100.

Currently on tour in the US, Gold Coast’s Amy Shark was one of the emerging artists who burst into the Australian music scene over the past twelve months and has been recognised for her works with six nominations. 2017’s “Night Thinker” EP peaked at #2 on the ARIA charts, and single ‘Adore’ placed #2 on triple j’s Hottest 100 and peaked at #3 on the ARIA Singles Chart.

Melbourne’s ARIA Award winner Illy has accumulated six nominations for this year’s ARIA Awards. Nominated for Apple Music Album Of The Year and Best Urban Album, “Two Degrees” debuted at #1 on the ARIA Chart, with single ‘Papercuts (feat. Vera Blue)’ hitting 4x platinum status. The track also came in at #7 in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2016.

Also securing six nominations, this is ARIA Award winner Jessica Mauboy’s seventh consecutive year of ARIA nominations. Making ARIA Chart history with her latest release, she became the first Indigenous woman to debut and achieve three consecutive weeks at #1. Reaching platinum status, the album also became Mauboy’s first individual #1 album on the ARIA Chart.

Today, ARIA also welcomed Apple Music to the 2017 ARIA Awards which includes the return of two of the event’s most highly-anticipated categories, Apple Music Song Of The Year and Apple Music Album Of The Year.

With Apple Music, ARIA is giving fans the power to determine the winner of the coveted Song of the Year award. Fans can cast their vote and show their support by listening to their favourite song on Apple Music.*

Following today’s nominations announcement, fans will now be able to access songs, albums and specially curated playlists that celebrate the 2017 ARIA Award nominees on Apple Music.

Denis Handlin AO, ARIA Chairman and Chairman and CEO of Sony Music Entertainment Australia and New Zealand and President, Asia said:

“We are delighted to be partnering with Apple Music to offer Australian music fans a truly unique and memorable experience for the 31st Annual ARIA Award celebrations.

“I would also like to congratulate all of the winners announced today in the Fine Arts, Artisan and Best Comedy categories, as well as those artists nominated for the 2017 ARIA Awards with Apple Music. Each of the nominees and winners truly demonstrate the brilliant influence and creativity of our Australian artists and we look forward to celebrating a wonderful showcase on the 28th November at The Star, Sydney.”

Dan Rosen, ARIA Chief Executive Officer, added: “2017 has been another remarkable year for Australian artists both at home and across the globe. The artists honoured today as winners in the Fine Arts, Artisan and Best Comedy Categories show that the high quality of artistic achievement in the Australian music scene is spread across a wide range of genres. The Artisan Award winners exemplify that hard work, innovation and creativity is not limited to those who play the music but also those who contribute to the recordings behind the scenes. It is also with great excitement and anticipation that we look forward to November 28 when we reveal the winners of the remaining categories and bring more ARIA magic moments to the stage.”

Classical guitar virtuoso, Slava Grigoryan took out the title in the Best Classical Album category for “Bach: Cello Suites Volume I.” This marks Grigoryan’s 14th ARIA nomination, either on his own or as a member of the Grigoryan Brothers or shared with other artists, and follows up from his win for Best Classical Album for “Sonatas & Fantasies” in 2002.

Best World Music Album was granted to Australian singer and songwriter Katie Noonan and classical guitarist Karin Schaupp for their collaborative efforts on “Songs of the Latin Skies”. This is the third time the duo have collaborated, following “Songs from the British Isles” in 2011 and the 2012 ARIA-nominated album “Songs of the Southern Skies.”

The late John Clarke has posthumously been awarded the 2017 ARIA Award for Best Comedy Release for “Clarke’s Classics”. Clarke’s renowned satirical wit and comic brilliance has previously won him ARIA Awards for “Great Interviews of the 20th Century” in the Best Australian Comedy category in 1991, and for “The Annual Report” in the same category in 1992.

Nominated twice for Best Jazz Album was multi-instrumentalist James Morrison. It was the release “The Great American Songbook” that received the ARIA award, after debuting at #2 on the ARIA Jazz & Blues Albums Chart. This win follows up from his first ARIA Award in 2010.

The nominees for the first-ever ARIA Music Teacher Of The Year Award, sponsored by Telstra and supported by The Song Room, were announced today. This award recognises music teachers for their passion and hard work in educating Australian children to play and love music. To vote for your favourite Aria Music teacher, visit. www.ariamusicteacheraward.com.au

ARIA congratulates the teachers and the schools for this wonderful achievement.

ARIA is thrilled to continue the tradition of unveiling commemorative artwork to celebrate the ARIAs, and we are honoured to announce that this year’s artwork has been designed by Sydney artist NELL. Throughout her career, she has created some diverse paintings and artworks and ARIA is very fortunate to have had her talent and creativity involved in designing this year’s ARIAs commemorative poster.

The 2016 ARIA Awards saw a 31% increase in TV ratings and delivered its biggest audience since 2010. It was the #1 show for 25-54s and under 55 year-olds on the night, and achieved the most social #ARIAs ever, generating over 585 million Twitter impressions around the world.
