Victorian blues outfit The Teskey Brothers have taken out the latest Levi’s Music Prize, which helps artists flaunt their stuff to overseas audiences. The prize includes a huge $25,000 cash prize and $5,000 in travel funds, which will definitely come in handy as they head to Europe and North America this year.
It’s no surprise that The Teskey Brothers were the winners of this extra pocket money. The four-piece were the first act to play at the newly renovated Espy and in the past three years, they’ve completed eight international and nine Aussie headline tours. The Teskey Brothers’ sophomore album, Run Home Slow, will be released Friday August 2.
The Levi’s Music Prize recipient was decided by a panel of international music industry experts. There are some pretty recognisable names among the Levi’s Music Prize alumni, including Amyl and the Sniffers, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and Alex Lahey.
