Angie McMahon wins the 2017 Josh Pyke Partnership

Wednesday, 07 Jun 2017

APRA AMCOS, in conjunction with Josh Pyke, is pleased to announce Angie McMahon as the winner of the Josh Pyke Partnership for 2017.

Angie will be awarded a $7500 grant to kick-start her music career. In addition to the financial reward she will also receive valuable insight and mentorship from Josh Pyke himself and a meeting with Gregg Donovan (Wonderlick Entertainment) and Stephen Wade (Select Music).

Now in it’s fourth year, the partnership aims to connect an unsigned musician with the exciting opportunity to receive mentorship and funding that will help to grow their career.

"Angie McMahon’s song Slow Mover was stuck in my head from the moment I heard it.

Her business plan was realistic, achievable, and showed the sort of foresight, initiative and ambition that has helped the previous winners go on to great things. 

A massive thanks as always to APRA AMCOS for making the grant such a significant resource for Angie and the previous winners.

Interestingly enough, this was the third year in a row that a woman has taken out this grant, and the split of men and women in the top 10 scorers was 50/50. The calibre of entries was really encouraging for the state of Australian music." - Josh Pyke

Angie said, "I feel extremely lucky and very grateful to be given the opportunity to make the best debut record that I can make."

"I'm so excited to head into the studio, and I can't thank Josh, his team, and APRA AMCOS enough for putting their faith and funds behind my music. This is a huge and happy kick forward. Thanks a million to this team of legends for their incredible vote of support.”
