Shortlist Music Prize Honors Unknowns
Alanis Morissette, Mos Def and director Baz Luhrmann are among the panelists who will determine the winner of this year’s Shortlist Music Prize, designed to identify an emerging artist who has yet to gain widespread commercial success.
Other judges include Jill Scott, U2’s Larry Mullen Jr., India.Arie, DJ Paul Oakenfold, the production duo the Neptunes and film director Spike Jonze.
“The Shortlist Music Prize is awarded to the most creative and accomplished album by an emerging artist,” The Shortlist Organization co-founder Tom Sarig said Thursday.
“It’s simple,” added co-founder Greg Spotts. “It’s artists you know turning you on to other artists you may not know.”
The winner will be announced in Los Angeles on Oct. 29.
This is the second year for the awarding of the music prize. Last year’s winner, Icelandic band Sigur Ros, received a $10,000 check.
