Sydney artist, Iluka has been announced today as the winner of First Break 2012.
Iluka, described as “effortlessly moving from swamp rock through doo-wop and into soaring balladry” was chosen from five finalists by judges, including music and program directors from all major commercial radio networks, Mushroom executives and music journalists.
Chairman of the Mushroom Group, Michael Gudinski, said: “I was delighted to be involved in the selection process for the First Break initiative. The First Break judges were unanimous in their belief that Iluka has all of the qualities that will endear her to commercial radio right across the country and to Australian music lovers of all ages. I’m really looking forward to The Mushroom Group being involved in the launch of her career.”
Judge and Chief Content Officer, Southern Cross Austereo, Guy Dobson said: “Iluka has an amazing sound about her and under the tutelage of the great music minds of the Mushroom Group and with the support of commercial radio in Australia we are confident she'll be adding to her already growing fan base very quickly!”
