July 2022 New Music Single Funding Outcomes

NZ On Air Music have announced the results of their July 2022 New Music Single funding round. The 217 applications made it the second biggest NMS selection round to date.


The 36 songs listed above from that 200+ pool will each receive $10,000 to aid their release as singles in the coming months. The songs were selected by a panel on the basis of strong potential to reach a variety of local audiences through broadcast and online media. 13 of the artists will be receiving NZOA funding for the first time while nearly 70% of the funded artists identify as female, female-led, gender-diverse or mixed-gender acts.

The panel was made up of Charlotte Ryan (RNZ Music), Maggie Tweedie (Radio Active), Jack Honeybone (The Rock), Sarah Illingworth (Flying Out), Finn McLennan-Elliott (Tuning Fork), Wairere Iti (Māori Music Industry Coalition) and Jeff Newton of NZ On Air.

The next New Music Single round will open on July 28, with applications due by August 18.
