Similarly, Australia Council Chief Executive Officer Tony Grybowski said he is excited about again partnering with the PPCA. 

"These grants provide a much needed opportunity for Australian musicians to record their own music and it is wonderful to see previous recipients, such as Courtney Barnett, achieve such success," Grybowski said.
"The Australia Council is committed to supporting new, high quality Australian work and these grants will enable five artists to share their music with new audiences."
