PHOTOS: APRA Silver Scroll Award Top 20

The Top 20 songs in line for the 2015 APRA Silver Scroll Award have been announced today with a strong line up of kiwi artists making their way onto the list.

The run down showcases both well known local talent recognisable on the international stage, and up and coming artists to watch out for from across the country.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra and SJD have both managed to land two songs each in the top 20. Both Lorde and brother-sister duo Broods are back on the list for a second year running.

2015 marks the 50th prestigious song writers' awards. The winner's ceremony will be held in Auckland on Thursday, September 17 at Vector Arena.
