triple j Unearthed winner – Zane Francis

Congratulations to this year’s triple j Unearthed winner Zane Francis.

Zane Francis a young electronic/indie artist from Tweed Heads/Coolangatta. He follows in the footsteps of Thelma Plum, Robbie Miller and Philly to perfrom in Darwin at the NIMAs.

“I never would’ve thought in a million years that my little track would deliver me such amazing global feedback and now this incredible opportunity to perform at the NIMA’s. My performance at NIMA will be the first time ‘Acclimate’ has been performed live and I seriously couldn’t think of a better place for it to occur” said Zane.

“triple j Unearthed is overjoyed to crown Zane Francis. He earned it on the back of his striking tune ‘Acclimate’. While the song only lasts for a shade over two minutes, they’re nonetheless breathtaking with Zane’s rich voice packing a devastatingly powerful emotional punch that grips your ears from the first listen and doesn’t let go.” Dave Ruby Howe, triple j Music Director.
