The City Sounds’ Amplify competition attracted a strong field of local talent. More than 120 Brisbane bands shared their music, and 3000 people got behind the acts and voted. Chosen by an industry panel of Ben Preece from Mucho Bravado, Tony Vollmerhause from 4ZZZ radio and Stacey Coleman from QMusic, the top 5 bands are Babaganoüj, WAAX, Doom Mountain, The Ninjas and taking away the most votes to automatically enter the top 5 Baskervillain.
The winning act as chosen by ARIA award winning producer Magoo was announced on July 16 as Babaganoüj, the band will take home $5000 worth of studio time with Magoo and a $2000 consultation package from leading music PR firm Mucho Bravado. Last year’s winners Little Odessa have since exploded onto the national scene after recording their hit singles ‘All Night’ and ‘It’s about time.’
