Sia Picks Up Songwriter of the Year Award, Remains Excellent

As if we needed any further confirmation that this is officially The Year Of Sia, last night, the singer-slash-magical breath of pixie dust won big at the APRA Awards, taking away the Songwriter Of The Year trophy for the second year running.

APRA, the copyright organisation that represents composers, lyricists and publishers in Australia, held its annual awards ceremony in Brisbane last night. In addition to Sia’s award, Vance Joy walked away with Pop Song Of The Year for Triple J favourite ‘Riptide’.

Sia has had a pretty incredible couple of months. Her video for ‘Chandelier’ went viral as hell, racking up close to 40 million YouTube views, and she recently got engaged to filmmaker Erik Anders Lang.

In addition to that, the Aussie has written songs for RihannaBeyoncéKylie,ShakiraJennifer LopezBritney and even the frenetic pile of giggles and nervous tics that is Celine Dion

Her new album 1000 Forms Of Fear will be out on July 8.
