Last night the music industry came together in Brisbane to celebrate women's contributions and achievements across all areas of the industry with the second annual Australian Women In Music Awards taking place at the Brisbane Powerhouse. The Soundcheck was extremely honoured to be attending the stellar night which boasted a range of incredible performances and a chance to shine a light on women, First Nations, Multicultural artists and members of the LGBTQIA who make up this sensational industry.
