The win is part of a string of top gongs for the Melbourne singer-songwriter, who took out four ARIA awards last year and was awarded $30,000 for winning the Australian Music Prize.


Courtney’s award ended Sia's history-making winning streak, after she was named Songwriter of the Year for three consecutive years from 2013-2015.


Courtney’s Sarina Russo Job Access mentor Graeme Walker is very, very, proud of her and her achievements.
