Brisbane songwriter Georgia Potter takes out inaugural Carol Lloyd Award

Thursday, 01 Jun 2017

APRA AMCOS congratulates the inaugural winner for the Carol Lloyd Award: Georgia Potter.

Established late 2016 in partnership with Queensland Music Festival, Arts Queensland and Hutchinson Builders; the Award seeks to give a financial boost to an emerging female singer-songwriter from Queensland.

Named after famed performer and songwriter in her own right, the late Carol Lloyd, the Award was created to both commemorate Carol’s career and her impact in the Queensland music scene, but also to ensure that opportunities continue to be presented for women in the industry.

In an award ceremony held on Tuesday, Georgia Potter took out the award as part of the Queensland Music Festival launch. Speaking to the Brisbane Times, Georgia expressed of the Award’s origin,

“Carol Lloyd was one of the idols I grew up with. Carol Lloyd and Railroad Gin are two of my Queensland icons. So I am just honoured to win this award as a genuine Carol Lloyd fan.”

Georgia has led a long career crossing genres as a songwriter and performer, working both solo and in bands - most recently as Moreton. This award will allow Georgia to work on her next EP and performances showcasing it. The Carol Lloyd Award will open for entries again later in 2017.
