ABC Music takes out two more ARIA Awards and The Wiggles are inducted into ARIA Hall of Fame

 

At a ceremony in Sydney last night ABC Music has won two more coveted trophies in the 2011 ARIA Awards, taking the total number of awards won by the label this year to five.

Topping off an immensely successful year The Wiggles were also inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in recognition of their 20 year commitment to children’s music and entertainment.

The Audreys critically acclaimed album Sometimes the Stars won the ARIA for Best Blues & Roots Album. This is the third ARIA for the band, who have now won ARIAs for each of their three album releases since their debut in 2006.

The Wiggles were honoured to join an esteemed list of previous inductees when they were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. 2011 marks the 20th Anniversary of their signing to ABC Music and the release of their first album. The Wiggles have sold over 7 million albums and over 23 million DVDs worldwide.

The Wiggles also scored the ARIA Award for Best Children’s Album for Ukulele Baby!. This is The Wiggles tenth ARIA and cements their place as the most awarded artist in a single category.

Last night’s awards have taken ABC Music’s 2011 ARIA Awards tally to five, having won three Fine Arts Awards at a ceremony held in October for Best Classical Album (Sally Whitwell’s Mad Rush: The Solo Piano Music of Philip Glass), Best Jazz Album (Elixir featuring Katie Noonan: First Seed Ripening) and Best Original Soundtrack/Cast/Show Album (Chris Lilley’s Angry Boys).

Director of ABC Commercial, Lynley Marshall, congratulated ABC Music and its artists for another outstanding result. ‘This year’s ARIA Awards once again confirm the talent and commitment behind the ABC Music label which consistently punches above its weight.’
