triple j’s Unearthed High 2022 finalists
The finalists for triple j’s Unearthed High 2022 have been announced, with over 1000 entries to choose from – the competition is thick.
To enter, teens from around the country had to submit their original track, which was then listened to by the team at triple j.
Over the years, Unearthed High has seen some of Australia’s most iconic artists enter the annual competition including, The Kid Laroi, Hockey Dad, Gretty Ray, Genesis Owusu, George Alice and last year’s winners, The Rions.
triple j Unearthed Music Director, Dave Ruby Howe, says we should expect big things.
“We shouldn’t be shocked that Unearthed High continues to over-achieve and reveal so much incredible school-aged talent in the country. And yet, I’m still in awe of the class of 2022,” said Dave.
“As well as budding artists with potential that’s plain to see, this year’s crop of acts has included ready-made stars that we’ll no doubt see on festival stages and hear on the radio in the very near future. They’ve all got the ambition, abilities and – most importantly – the great songs to make that happen.”
