Cole Phoenix Nominated for Best New Top40 Artist of the Year
Australian singer, Cole Phoenix, is set for a scorching hot start to the year after being confirmed as a nominee for the Best New Top 40 Artist of the Year in the New Music Awards.
Phoenix released her scorching Pop/Rock single ‘Hello’ on the 1st of January, racking up thousands of downloads and hours of airplay across Australia, the USA and the UK. The track is the latest to be taken from the upcoming album, ‘She’s on Fire.’ The Brisbane native has been tipped for success in 2015 following the worldwide debut of ‘Hello’ and its revolutionary video, shot by Nicolas Jacobi and Cole Phoenix herself in London.
Phoenix’s upbeat vocals and dance-floor ready tunes can also be heard on her hit single ‘UFO’ and her anti bullying anthem “CANNIBAL” from her previous self-titled album “Cole Phoenix” which received worldwide acclaim and recognition from the International Songwriting Competition.
The annual New Music Awards by New Music Weekly magazine are given for excellence in music to both recording artists and radio stations. The first round nominations are submitted by members of the press, radio, music industry and fans, with the top performing nominees being selected for the final ballot.
Cole Phoenix said, “I nearly choked on my morning mocha finding out about this nomination! It’s great to get recognition for the hard work and an honor to be among such majors as an independent artist. It often feels like a David and Goliath battle in the music biz – with support, the awards show indies can survive and inspire others to follow their dream despite the odds.”

Fast Review: Marco Polo has the components of a great show. Intriguing plot, great cinematography, exotic settings. I have seen some reviews that compare this to Game Of Thrones.
