THE WASH UP OF THE 2020 AOTEAROA MUSIC AWARDS


The music industry celebrates the bright sparks in what has been a challenging year for many
THE WASH UP OF THE 2020 AOTEAROA MUSIC AWARDS

News

The news is written by a mysterious person. Maybe Wendy Broccoli.


While 2020 has no doubt been a challenging year, it was not without its wins. There were many terrific new albums, and artists discovered new ways to connect with audiences within the new context of Covid-19. Overall, the music community showed its resilience and quite frankly you love to see it.

So, as it does, the music industry got together to celebrate the year that was, and of course to dish out the awards. At Flying Nun we would like to be among those to send a massive congratulations to award winners Lily Paris West, for her incredible artwork on the cover of Mermaidens' Look Me In The Eyeand Simon Gooding, for his work on Reb Fountain's self-titled album. Tino pai!
