Brisbane's Thelma Plum has won the triple j Unearthed competition for the National Indigenous Music Awards, and will travel to Darwin to perform at the ceremony alongside the Medics, East Journey and Troy Cassar-Daley in August.

The 17-year-old won the competition, which attracted entries from all across Australia.

Unearthed's Music Director Dave Ruby said, “Thelma's music hits on multiple fronts; her acoustic craft is well developed and manages to sound both hushed and warm at the same. Her songwriting too is impressive with a disarming charm to her lyrics. That she's just on the cusp of 18 makes us excited for what's ahead of her.”

The iNTune Music Industry Conference takes place from Friday 10 - Sunday 12 August in Darwin, with the Awards taking place Saturday 11 August. Tickets available here.
