Melbourne’s G Flip, whose career has been on the up and up since her breakout shows at SXSW in March, will receive the ARIA Emerging Artist Scholarship.

In partnership with Virgin Australia, G Flip will receive travel support for both domestic and international legs of her 2019 world tour.

The Scholarship helps emerging artists who are represented by a current ARIA member that haven’t been previously nominated for any ARIA Awards category with an Album or Single before the 2018 Awards (ie 2018 entrants / nominees are eligible).

The musician, singer, songwriter, producer and drummer has had a banner 2018. Her debut single ‘About You’ peaked at #26 on the ARIA Australian Artist Singles Chart, and her second single ‘Killing My Time’ peaked at #11 on the ARIA Australian Artist Singles Chart.
