    APRA AMCOS has revealed the winners of the 2024 APRA Music Awards which were held in Sydney, Gadigal land in a room filled with Australian songwriters, their publishers and music industry guests.

    Taking out the Peer-Voted APRA Song of the Year was Troye Sivan and co-writer Styalz Fuego with Rush, the lead single from Sivan’s third studio album Something to Give Each Other.

    Dean Lewis took home two APRA Music Awards for How Do I Say Goodbye. The song, which expresses the love, fear, and shock that followed his father’s cancer diagnosis has resonated widely and is the Most Performed Australian Work and Most Performed Pop Work. These awards take Dean’s tally to six APRA Music Awards since he made his songwriting debut in 2016.

    The Teskey Brothers were named Songwriter of the Year by the APRA Board of Writer and Publisher Directors.

    Taking out the inaugural Most Performed Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Work category are APRA Music Awards debutants Parkway Drive with Darker Still. Each receiving their first APRA Award was Sydney duo Polish Club (with writer and producer Robby De Sa) for their upbeat Good Time which was the Most Performed Rock Work.

    ONEFOUR (with co-writers Bailey Pickles, Chandler Hammond, Hugo Hui and Caleb Tiedemann) took out their first APRA Music Award in Most Performed Hip Hop / Rap Work for COMMA’s featuring CG. Australian-New Zealand electronic music duo Shouse (Jack Madin and Ed Service) scored their first APRA Music Award for Most Performed Dance/Electronic Work for Never Let You Go which features American hitmaker Jason Derulo. Also receiving his first APRA Award is JKING, whose song Cinderella was the Most Performed R&B / Soul Work.

    Rounding out the Most Performed categories was Sia, who for the fifth time has the Most Performed Australian Work Overseas, this year with Unstoppable from her seventh studio album This Is Acting, and Taylor Swift who was recognised as the International Work of the Year recipient for Anti-Hero, the lead single from her tenth studio album, Midnights.
