JJJ’s Unearthed High winner ‘Asta’
Hobart school girl 'Asta', who has been compared to Sia, Owl Eyes and Ladyhawke, has won the Triple J Unearthed High comp.
She wins a trip to Sydney to have her song 'My Heart is on Fire' professionally recorded, guaranteed airtime and gets to perform beside Bliss N Eso at her school.
Asta will also play at Hobart's Soundscape Festival with artists like The Temper Trap, Missy Higgins and Bluejuice.
Unearthed MD Dave Ruby Howe said…
“As the entries from budding musos around the country rolled in to this year’s Unearthed High comp it was difficult to shake the pull of Hobart school girl Asta and her stirring pop tune ‘My Heart Is On Fire’. In a field of six finalists – and four other solo acts – Asta asserted her individual spark with an infectious mixture of smoky crooning and effortless pop production that just hits the ear-candy spot instantaneously."
