Troy Kingi Wins APRA Silver Scroll Award

Troy Kingi Wins APRA Silver Scroll Award

Chris Cudby / Thursday 24th March, 2022 6:56PM

Aotearoa's prestigious annual songwriting prize, the APRA Silver Scroll Award, was presented to Troy Kingi this evening for 'All Your Ships Have Sailed', from the prolific and multi-talented artist's funk / soul-infused 2020 album The Ghost of Freddie Cesar, inspired by his father. By an unusual quirk of history, tonight's presentation was for the 2021 award, necessarily postponed and shifted to the online realm due to the global pandemic. Voted for by APRA members across the nation, Kingi was amongst five finalists for the coveted prize, including The Beths, Maisey Rika, Anthonie Tonnon and Tipene.

The ceremony concluded with a spectacular performance by Deva Mahal of 'All Your Ships Have Sailed' with nine-piece band, including her sister Zoe Moon on backing vocals. Other winners on the night included Maisey Rika and Seth Haapu, recipients of the 2021 APRA Maioha Award for 'Wāiti Wāita', and composer / electronic guru Karl Steven, winner of 2021 APRA Best Original Music in a Series for Black Hands.
