Unearthed High winners

Congratulations to Teenage Joans for taking out 's Unearthed High competition for 2020.

For those who don't know, the duo met through Northern Sound System (NSS) and started jamming together from there.

Cahli Baker (lead singer and guitarist) is a N1 Record artist along with drummer, Tahlia Borg, being very much part of the NSS family for a number of years.

Teenage Joans will now go on to record their next single in the triple j studios and receive professional industry advice and mentorship with some of their favourite artists.

This is a back to back for NSS Alumni with taking it out in 2019.
