Crowded House, Tones And I & Dom Dolla Win Big At The Shure Rolling Stone Music Awards

Sydney’s IVY was awash with celebrity on Tuesday night as some of the biggest stars in the Australian music industry descended on the venue to unveil the winners of the Shure Rolling Stone Music Awards.

Tones And I, Dom Dolla, Peach PRC and The Teskey Brothers were among the winners at the 2024 Shure Rolling Stone Australia Awards on Tuesday evening (March 26), with the multi-award-winning Crowded House collecting the second-ever Rolling Stone Icon Award before Neil Finn took to the stage to perform a medley of the band’s classics.

Hosted by Alex Dyson, the night saw five awards handed out, including Best Single (Peach PRC), Best Record (The Teskey Brothers), Best New Artist (Dom Dolla) and the Rolling Stone Icon Award presented by legendary entertainment presenter, Richard Wilkins. There was also an unforgettable live performance from Angus & Julia Stone, ahead of the duos’ release of their sixth studio album Cape Forestier in May.

“Thank you Rolling Stone for making us into an icon. I’m not sure what that truly means, but I think it means you need to go to Mecca and buy some makeup, so I’ve done that. I’d like to thank all the band members of Crowded House, so I’m representing for them, they send their love. For everybody, thank you so much for honouring us in this fashion,” said Neil Finn, accepting the award.

Adelaide singer-songwriter Peach PRC claimed the award for Best Single, with ‘Perfect For You’ beating out a strong list of releases by Amy Shark, Lime Cordiale, Fisher, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers, and more to receive the honour. ‘Perfect For You’ appeared on her debut 2023 EP Manic Dream Pixie and came in at #63 on triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2023.

“This is such an honour. Thank you all so much for making this possible. Thank you to Rolling Stone, thank you to my team, and thank you, Paris Hilton, for letting me sample your song,” she said in her acceptance speech.

The Winding Way took out Best Record, the third studio album from 2023 Rolling Stone AU/NZ cover stars The Teskey Brothers. The record topped a field of stellar record releases from the likes of Teenage Dads, G Flip, The Amity Affliction, Troye Sivan Dope Lemon and more. The award caps off a huge year for the album, which peaked at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart and also charted in The Netherlands, Germany, New Zealand, Scotland and the UK.

“Thank you all so much, as always we appreciate everything that comes our way. We couldn’t do this without the support of our manager, our label Mushroom, and our entire amazing team. We appreciate all our fans for the love on the record, thank you for listening,” they said, accepting the award.

After a breakout in 2023, Melbourne producer and songwriter Dom Dolla won Best New Artist, beating highly fancied nominees, including Royel Otis, The Rions, GrentPerez, Blusher, Old Mervs, and more.

Accepting the award via video while touring in Brazil, Dom Dolla described it as “absolutely an honour… Rolling Stone has such an iconic place in modern music history that getting the nod is unbelievable. Unfortunately, I can’t be there with you guys tonight to pour out a couple, but rip the lid off for me, and I’ll see you again really soon”.

The Rolling Stone Global Award recognises the global achievements of Australian artists. This special award sees Rolling Stone Australia invite the brand’s international editorial teams, including editors from Rolling Stone US and Rolling Stone UK, to vote in the Rolling Stone Global Award category. Tones And I was nominated alongside Vacations, Tame Impala, Kylie Minogue, Troye Sivan, Kylie Minogue and more.

Wow, this is an incredible award to win, up against such an icon in Kylie Minogue who helped pave the way for women in pop music on a global scale”.

“Congratulations to our incredible nominees and winners. Their music was listened to and judged by some of the world’s most influential music critics. A huge thank you to our incredible sponsors and performers who have made the 2024 Shure Rolling Stone Australia Awards our best yet. We are continually inspired by Australian artists, their stories, and their music, and we are so proud to support them with such a special night dedicated to celebrating their art,” said Rolling Stone AU/NZ Editor-in-Chief Poppy Reid.
