With the total of $30,000 in cash from Levi’s® and travel from Stage and Screen, G Flip and her team have their sights set on building global relationships with dedicated writing trips to London and Los Angeles where Georgia will co-write with a range of artists and explore opportunities.
G Flip’s manager Dan Zilber of Future Classic says, “We believe that getting Georgia into the room and in the company of other hit songwriters gives us an opportunity to make more direct artist to artist connections and also opens the doors for features and writing for other artists.
“G’s songwriting ability, efficiency in the room and warm nature make her an incredibly successful collaborator.”
Heading to BIGSOUND in 2018 with significant export activity and slots on international festival bills already under her belt, G Flip has continued to build a reputation as a multifaceted songwriter and animated performer. Following her BIGSOUND showcase, G Flip went on to finish playing her second sold out national tour before travelling to the US to showcase in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York.
Her 2018 self-produced debut single ‘About You’ was dubbed Pitchfork’s ‘Best New Track’ and now 62 million streams later her music has reached fans globally. In 2019 G Flip released her debut album ‘About Us’ which lead her to three ARIA nominations and triple j feature album of the week.
Previous winners of the Levi’s® Music Prize include Gordon Koang, Ecca Vandal, The Teskey Brothers, Amyl & The Sniffers, Stella Donnelly, Alex Lahey, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Hatchie and Emerson Snowe. The Prize supports artists that have built significant initial career momentum via their BIGSOUND experience, but who need a financial leg-up to keep moving forward on the international stage.
