About Musicoz

"Musicoz is a great initiative and gives many opportunities to young and up coming artists"

- Jonathan (Bliss n Eso)

Musicoz is a national initiative dedicated to improving the quality of original music culture in Australia. Since 2000, Musicoz has been developing the music industry at the grass roots level by seeking out, recognising and encouraging the talents of unsigned and independent artists and providing them with much needed development support and opportunities as they carve out their careers.

About Musicoz / Australian Independent Music Awards

The Musicoz Australian Independent Music Awards are billed in the media as the ARIA's for independent artists.The awards receive an amazing amount of exposure through the media as well as our presenting media partners: YouTube, BigPond, Tone Deaf, AU Review, Jaden Social, Austereo Network to name a few. Entrants are judged by the elite of the music and entertainment industry. The Top artists of each genre are marketed and exposed as the top of their class, per say, for that year. Critical recognition.
