The Unearthed story began in regional New South Wales when triple j’s regional roll-out kicked off in Lismore in 1995. Along with triple j switching on in regional centres across Australia, a local band would be ‘unearthed’ at every stop. The winners of the first Unearthed competition in Lismore were Grinspoon.
In 2006, Unearthed relaunched as the place where independent Australian artists could upload and share their independent recordings online - a direct line to the audience for artists who may not have had a platform to do so otherwise.
Then in 2011, the Unearthed digital radio station launched – and it hasn’t stopped since. Unearthed music can now fill an entire radio station, and there are thousands of Unearthed artists and songs which can be found on our website. The whole Unearthed project remains a valuable first step for Australians musicians trying to find an audience.
