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.

BAKER BOY RECEIVES THE CORNER AWARD 2018

The Corner Hotel is thrilled to reveal that the Northern Territory's very own busta rhyming Baker Boy is the recipient of the 2018 edition of its annual Corner Award!

Raised in the remote NT communities of Yurrwi and Maningrida, 21 year-old Danzal Baker, aka Baker Boy, raps in Yolngu Matha language representing his bloodlines. Baker Boy is known as a multi-talented, multi-lingual artist, working across rap, dance, acting and graffiti, and he hopes to inspire younger generations to embrace their culture and become leaders in their communities.

Recently Baker Boy has thrilled audiences, appearing on festival lineups the likes of Groovin’ The Moo, St Jerome’s Laneway Festival and Golden Plains as well as taken to the stage with Australian music legends Yothu Yindi following the incredible rework and release of their seminal track ‘Treaty.’
