It was Queensland music’s night of nights overnight, with the 2018 Queensland Music Awards taking place at the Royal International Convention Centre at the Brisbane Showgrounds. A sold out event this year, the QMA’s saw Jeremy Neale take Song of the Year AND Best Rock Song for “Dancin’ & Romancin'. As well as Karl S Williams' 'Blood To Give' take out the prize for Blues and Roots.
The Music said this:
The Brisbane music community is a tight-knit bunch, which was especially a testament in the Rock Category, taken out by the beloved Jeremy Neale. During his acceptance speech, Neale praised the other nominees, speaking of D&M’s and driving to Ipswich with Marie De Vita from WAAX, the exceptional work of Landings who helped audio-engineer his new album and getting his break in the industry after starting Velociraptor with DZ Deathrays way back in 2008. Neale also went on to win Song Of The Year for Dancin’ & Romancin’ which literally got everyone up, dancing and romancing, as the closing performance of the ceremony and which will land him a star on Brisbane’s very own Walk Of Fame.
Jeremy's song Dancin' & Romancin' was released last year, taken from debut album 'Getting The Team Back Together' and Karl S Williams' 'Blood To Give' as a stand alone single in June 2017.
