Cole Phoenix Nominated for Best New Top40 Artist of the Year - 2015 New Music Awards

Australian songbird Cole Phoenix is set for a scorching hot start to the year after being confirmed as a nominee for the Best New Top 40 Artist of the Year in the New Music Awards. Other nominees in the Best New Top40 Artist of the Year category include chart toppers Sam Smith, Meghan Trainor and Iggy Azalea.

Phoenix released her scorching Pop/Rock single ‘Hello’ on the 1st of January, racking up thousands of downloads and hours of airplay across Australia, the USA and the UK. The electrifying track is the latest to be taken from the upcoming album, ‘She's on Fire.’ The Brisbane native has been wildly tipped for success in 2015 following the worldwide debut of ‘Hello’ and its revolutionary video, shot by Nicolas Jacobi and Cole Phoenix herself entirely on an iPhone 6 Plus in festive London.

Phoenix’s upbeat vocals and dance-floor ready tunes can also be heard on her hit single ‘UFO’ and her anti bullying anthem "CANNIBAL" from her previous self-titled album "Cole Phoenix" which received worldwide acclaim and recognition from the International Songwriting Competition.

The annual New Music Awards by New Music Weekly magazine are given for excellence in music to both recording artists and radio stations. The first round nominations are submitted by members of the press, radio, music industry and fans, with the top performing nominees being selected for the final ballot.

Cole Phoenix said, “I nearly choked on my morning mocha finding out about this nomination! It's great to get recognition for the hard work and an honor to be among such majors as an independent artist. It often feels like a David and Goliath battle in the music biz - with support, the awards show indies can survive and inspire others to follow their dream despite the odds."

So if you’ve tapped your feet to ‘Hello’ or hit the dance floor to ‘UFO’ head to the New Music Weekly website and register your vote for Cole Phoenix in the Best New Top40 Artist of the Year category.
