Established in 2000, the Australian Music Radio Airplay Project (Amrap) has been helping Australian musicians to distribute and promote their music on community radio stations around the country.
Amrap is funded by the CBF and managed by the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA).
It provides musicians with a range of free services to help them build their audiences, and identify where their music is being played (through Airplay search) to more easily target their promotions and touring.
The service is also free for all Australian community radio stations, music directors and content producers to promote new Australian music through their programs.
Since 2019, Amrap has also been working with Indigtube on First Sounds, a compilation showcasing new and emerging First Nations artists.
Singer/songwriter from Healesville, Ben Mitchell, says Amrap was a game changer for him.
“Getting all 17 tracks from my latest release ‘Chance To Love’ played on stations across the country probably wouldn’t have happened without Amrap.”
Part of Ben’s album launch and touring schedule included interviews and in-studio performances at community radio stations.
