Chelsea Jade - Soft Spot

Life Of The Party has just been announced as one of the 5 finalists for the APRA Silver Scroll, which I take to be like a New Zealand Ivor Novello Award celebrating excellence in songwriting? (@beyoncésweave help?)

The five shortlisted artists and songs are:
Chelsea Jade - Life Of The Party
Lorde - Green Light
Bic Runga - Close Your Eyes
Aldous Harding - Horizon
Nadia Reid - Richard


Whew we love talent!
Yep, pretty much the same thing (except APRA has members from both New Zealand and Australia, and holds separate awards for the latter. Those run slightly more mainstream; a lot of repeated Sia love etc.). And yeah, that shortlist is phenomenal. The first time the shortlist has gone completely misandrist I think, and no reason to turn back really.

If you wanted talent talking about talent, check out this little feature on the shortlistees, which includes Chelsea being honoured by Queen/Goddess/Light Of My Life Bic herself.
