CORNER AWARD

The Corner Award was launched in 2016 as a way to say thanks and give something back to the industry that has been so good to us for so long. The annual award is dedicated to celebrating artists who are breaking the mould and making an impact with their music.

CABLE TIES RECEIVE 2017 CORner AWARD!

To celebrate taking out 2017’s Corner Award, Melbourne punk trio Cable Ties invited along some very special guests for the first ever Cable Ties Ball, a multi-stage event at the Corner Hotel.

Launched in 2016, the Corner Award started as a way to give back to the music community that has given us so much over the years. A team of industry experts have tirelessly worked together to whittle down the longlist of rising music stars, into a shortlist and finally decide on one worthy recipient. As a part of the award, Cable Ties’ show at the Corner Hotel on Sat 24 February doubled as their first headlining appearance at the venue.

Cable Ties began piecing together their unbridled brand of wiry guitar tunes in singer and guitarist Jenny McKechnie’s back shed in early 2015. Since then, they’ve gone on to develop a cult-like following amongst lovers of frenetic punk and garage the world over.

After only having been performing together for just over a year the band went on to conquer the opening slot at the 2016 Meredith Music Festival, earning them more than a few raised right boots. This preceded a signing with legendary Melbourne label Poison City leading to the release of their debut self-titled album earlier this year. What followed was a nationwide string of sold out shows, local support slots for the likes of The Peep Tempel and The Kills, a European tour with Jen Cloher, the announcement of their inclusion on the 2018 St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival line-up and more!
